Tom Penhale is a dynamic singer/songwriter, flautist, and electric wind instrument (EWI) player from Newton, Massachusetts. With his EWI, Tom has 356 sounds from which to choose. Some are quite authentic to the instrument they simulate, while others have their own distinctive voice. When combined with his flute and the talents of other fine musicians, a unique blend of rock and jazz is born.
Information on Tom's music background and experience as a writer, editor, web designer, webmaster, web content strategist, and email marketer can be found on his Bio page.
Tom is pleased to announce that his five-song EP entitled "The Leap" has lifted off!
In his first Blog entry, Tom tells about his inspiring Work that Reconnects workshop experience and provides album “liner notes” for his Leap Time EP as well as news on the The Leap Time Project in the works. A video of him performing "Right Here, Right Now" at the workshop has been posted recently.
You can hear his Fox in the Henhouse, recorded in response the financial meltdown of 2008. In many ways, it's as relevant as ever.
Sample clips from "The Leap" can be heard below and downloaded in their entirety. With these songs, seeds are being sown for the post-Trump world as we deepen our connection to the web of life and find our role in turning the tide.
As of 1/23/18 this album has begun streaming throughout
the world through Spotify, ITunes, Apple, Napster and all the rest!
