Toby Tate aka Thomas Rose / About
Toby Tate aka Thomas Rose' latest project, 'Kitty,' is a ten song wonder that tested his abilities as a producer/performer and forced him to reach beyond even what he believed himself capable of, stretching his songwriting, performing and engineering skills to the max and resulting in a sound that is eclectic yet focused. You will hear the influences of his favorite bands such as Led Zeppelin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, R.E.M., and the Beatles.
This project is the result of years of performing live and is the one of which he is most proud. About this CD, Thomas said, "I made the CD I wanted to make, not just the one I thought people would want to hear."
'Kitty' is full of guitars, mandolins, pianos and vocal harmonies featuring funky rhythms and melodic hooks with lyrics about love, loss and longing. It's reminiscent of acoustic Zeppelin, R.E.M., Pure Prairie League, and Creedence.
Toby thinks you will agree - 'Kitty' is happy and sometimes melancholy, but always satisfying.
