Synopsis

Album Description
From the San Francisco Bay area, singer-songwriter Tom Payne works as in-house carpenter at Genentech. Payne's songs are Socratic, gentle, often sentimental, occasionally playful, serious without pretension. A strong natural singing voice and accomplished, flowing guitar style place Tom's work firmly in the folk tradition, but with a distinctly urban perspective. "The Grapes of Wrath-like landscape is not bleak, because Payne finds the kernel of peace and beauty in each person in his songs, and treats them with respect and humor." -Mike Devlin Music Matters Review
 

CD Reviews

Not well know but well worth your time
02/26/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you enjoy singer-songwriter folk music then you will probably enjoey Tom Payne. He has a wonderful voice and in "Ten Lucky Pennies" presents a great collection of songs that range from the very personal to small stories from everyday life. Payne reminds me a little of a modern Gordon Lightfoot (but then I am Canadian) with a touch of Leonard Cohen. I'm always on the look out for good artist, known or unknown and Payne is one of my favorite finds. Well worth your time to take a chance on something a little less conventional."
