When asked about his songwriting, Tom says “Although I don’t find myself as a match for their genius, I try and gauge the lyrical aspect of my songwriting to artists like Leonard Cohen, Tom Russell, Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson, and Bob Dylan. T… I often find inspiration for songs in novels, newspaper articles, and personal stories from friends and acquaintances.”
