"A rare wordsmith backed up by the originality, and sui generis cult appeal of a Shotgun Jimmie or Silver Jews or Bill Callahan.
– The Overcast
Influenced by the distinct aesthetic of home recordings, at a young age, Thom Coombes began recording his own songs in a basement with a boom box and a built-in mic. For the past 15 years, Thom's recording process remains much the same, traversing bedrooms, basements, and bathrooms with a Tascam 4-track cassette recorder, an old computer and a touch of digital production, capturing a unique, lo-fi sound ranging from country and folk, to stripped down keyboard based pop songs.
Thom's sound is gentle and earnest. With mesmerizing guitar and lyrics that echo everyday life, Thom turns the mundane into woeful, heartfelt stories with a touch of comedy, simplicity, and a whole lot of honesty.
Thom's latest album, Old Stomping Grounds, was released in May 2017 and he has been zigzagging across the country ever since.
Secret Connection
"Secret Connection are so delightfully energetic that it’s impossible not to like them... The Agony Of Lhermitte is fifteen minutes of frantic, guitar based indie-pop, and boy is it enjoyable... To put it bluntly, [they] have a genuine talent for writing insanely catchy, no strings attached, upbeat indie-pop tracks."
~ Crack In The Road (UK)

"North Florida's Time, the duo of creative and life partners Michael and Madhava Collins, are giving devotional music a very radical overhaul. The fervent disciples of Krishna consciousness are taking the frothy, bubbly and extremely, shall we say, secular sonic framework of synth pop and marrying it to ancient prayers and self-penned exhortations to cast away material attachments. A spiritual message with a (ear) candy-coated shell, if you will."
