Acoustic Rock and Country
Since 2009, Tom Burgess has performed over 1,500 shows at over 200 different venues from Maine to Florida. From farmers markets, to corporate events, wineries and breweries and everywhere between, Tom knows how to put on the perfect acoustic performance for any type of event.
Covers at his shows range from 60s to 90s rock and country, and Tom's original material blends right into that genre. Tom's two last albums were local successes; in 2016, Tom's "Nashville Dreams" depicted a lonesome country and western rock vibe, accompanied by a full band. That CD was released at the Ocean Mist, in Matunuck. The 2017 follow-up to that was "Songs are Writin' me", an all acoustic record highlighted by the accompaniment of Dee Jaynes vocals, and Bob Ruzzo's guitar work. That record featured standard country duets, and some originals that fit the record. "Song's are Writin' me" was debuted at Mary Murphys pub, in Wakefield, RI.
While Tom has played in many different musical groups and formats, solo acoustic performances are Tom's specialty, where you'll hear sharp vocals, a crisp guitar, and intimate harmonica workings.
