The edgier side of Americana coupled with a healthy dose of 70’s guitar rock” is how one magazine described Tom Gillam’s music and that’s not too far off the mark. In a career that spans five studio releases and one live album, Gillam has carved out a special place in popular music he can easily call his own. His brilliant songwriting, whiskey tenor voice, and stinging slide guitar have become well known, not only to his fans here in the United States but also, in recent years, to audiences in Europe as well. His brand new album “Had Enough?” opens a new chapter in this remarkable musician’s story.
Co-produced by long time friend & producer Joe Carroll and recorded after Tom relocated from Philadelphia to his new home in Austin TX, “Had Enough?” has a decidedly ‘Texas feel’ to it; due largely to the addition of some talented Austin friends. Joining the musical line up this time out are former Alejandro Escovado guitarist Alan Durham, bassist Michael “Cornbread” Traylor (Billy Joe Shaver, Bruce Robison) and drummer Vicente Rodriguez (Sisters Morales), along with guest spots by Ed Jurdi (Band of Heathens), Guy Forsyth, and singer/songwriter Penny Jo Pullus. Add this potent mix to Gillam’s regular backing band Tractor Pull, and it becomes obvious that this record is something special. Fotoquelle : http://www.tomgillam.com
