Tom Laramee: Woke Up Today

Tom Laramee is a singer-songwriter from Seattle. His second album Woke Up Today is an acoustic affair, with a cello stealing much of the limelight. If you like albums like Nick Drake's Bryter Later, this one for you.

The album has a really nice flow Being an independent artist can be hassle - making ends meet is a challenging task, but Laramee pulled it off. . The album sounds bright and intimate and is very well produced. In fact, it sounds a whole lot better than many multi-million dollar albums.

The strongest track is Tethered To The Ground with an instrumental backing that uses cello and acoustic guitar like a pair of non-identical twins.

Too bad that the art director decided that his work is more important than the printed lyrics - it's always a bad idea to print black letters on a dark red background.

Tom Laramee: songwriter, vocals, acoustic guitar
