For the last six years, Tom Rhodes has been making quite a name for himself in the Americana scene. His award winning music is as real and honest as it gets. His distinctive voice, road-worn and raspy from years of honing his craft, and inviting guitar work that cleverly masks its complexity, form a warm and welcoming home for his heartfelt and inspiring lyrics. Having played shows across the US and Europe throughout his career, Tom has steadily built a diehard fan base that has seen him through the release of five independent albums: Tom Rhodes (2004), No Apologies (2006), Better Son (2010), With or Without (2014), and Who You Were (2016) . Fans have followed him from small bars in the DC area to venues such as the Walnut Creek Amphitheater in North Carolina, the Paramount Theater in Oakland, CA, and Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. As of 2017, his music has been licensed and used on network and cable TV shows, feature length movies, and commercials across all platforms. Geographical influences are unavoidable, when you’ve spent as much time in and around some of America‚Äôs greatest musical heartlands. Born in Houston, Texas, he moved to the Washington, DC area before heading off to places like Memphis, New Orleans, New York City, and even the Caribbean – each place leaving indelible marks on his eclectic songwriting and performing style. In 2011 he moved to Oakland, CA (where he currently resides), while working on new material and following some of his other passions, including illustration and videography.
