Tom Talks About The Show

American Tune: Simon, Croce & Taylor  takes you on a magical trip back to the 1970s to experience the timeless music of these three prolific singer-songwriters. Relive the intimate storytelling, intricate chord changes and breathtaking melodies of these gifted artists - their work building on and transcending the more traditional folk-influenced acoustic music of the previous decade. 

Paul Simon, never one to rest on his laurels, started exploring even more harmonically-rich sounds than he had during his peerless Simon & Garfunkel period as evidenced by such gems as "Still Crazy After All These Years" and "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover". Jim Croce made an enormous impact in his criminally short time on earth with deceptively complex chord progressions, strummed and fingerpicked underneath accessible, stirring melodies in songs like "Operator" and "Time In A Bottle" that permeated the radio dial. And James Taylor emerged as the definitive singer-songwriter with his singular guitar style and uncanny ability to touch people’s hearts with that distinctive voice on classics like "Fire And Rain" and "Carolina In My Mind".  American Tune: Simon, Croce & Taylor  showcases the songs you know and love from these master craftsmen during this brilliant span, framed in engaging stories about the artists themselves. 

Tom Glynn is a child of the seventies, who spent countless hours learning every guitar and piano lick by his musical heroes as he wore out the grooves on their records. He went on to become an award-winning singer-songwriter himself and is thrilled to be paying homage to these musical giants. Tom uses a unique semi-standard guitar tuning that stays true to the artists’ signature fingerstyles while adding a deep, lower register to the instrument, essentially accompanying himself on bass to add a warmth and fullness for the audience. 

Tom is a John Lennon Songwriting Contest winner and a Boston Music Award nominee for Outstanding Songwriter. Several of his songs have been chosen by NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association) for their coveted Top 40 honor, and his music has been featured on ABC, Fox, Lifetime and Showtime. His recent album “Skylight Intervention” (streaming links below) was the most added album to folk radio stations across the country in its first week. It featured a cover of Jim Croce’s “Operator (That’s Not The Way It Feels)” that has received extensive airplay. The Boston Globe calls Tom “a tunesmith at the top of his game.”
