About

Tommy Alexander is doing it all and doing it all very well. After self-releasing his brilliant alt-Country LP Waves in 2020, Alexander found his record on numerous end of the year lists, including nods from KEXP and Magnet Magazine. By this point it is clear that Alexander has established himself as a facet of the indie music world from his impressive and burgeoning booking agency, Pilot Light Booking, to his own musical outpouring. Alexander pens timeless songs with a powerful and dynamic voice and an evolved grasp on dense and concise lyrical design.

So much of Waves will continue to accompany you after just one listen. Tears plays like a jukebox jingle, ready to spring on you when inevitably things get worse, and you find new ways to cry. I Blame Myself will be there when you lie down, and when you wake, encouraging you to take responsibility for what comes with the new day. As Tommy ends Waves, it's mystifying how he couldve presaged the current collective mood with the short Doing Things Together, singing Doing things together sure beats doing things away from you, yes it's true Im missing you tonight

Im not much for prophecy, but my mind surely wants to categorize this as an album to help us through hard times. Lately it seems everyone is experiencing loneliness, and despair, but theyre also finding ways to create opportunities for their community. Tommy Alexander's WAVES comes from the few important things were left with when illusions crumble: a chance at self reflection, the opportunity to be of service to others, and lived experiences that make good art.

Thought provoking music in an age of glib imitation.
No Depression
