Tom Brosseau

It was on Doug Schulkind’s WFMU radio show ‘Give the The Drummer Some’ that we first came to hear the gentle acoustic sound of Tom Brosseau’s music. After tracking him down, we started talking with Tom at the beginning of 2005, and eventually decided to put out a compilation taken from some of his earlier works. Tom’s early releases (‘Tom Brosseau’, 2001; ‘North Dakota’, 2002; ‘Out Takes Vol 1’, 2003;) were all recorded with Gregory Page, and released on Page’s own Bed Pan label, and ‘Late Night At Largo’ 2004; produced by Mark Flanagan, recorded by Scott Fritz. A fifth album, ‘What I Mean To Say Is Goodbye’ was released in 2005 and “Grand Forks” ,Tom’s sixth LP in 2007, both of these appearing on the Loveless label.

Now living in LA, Tom was born and raised in Grand Forks, North Dakota. He comes from a family background steeped in music - growing up in a house with instruments lining the walls, and learning to play at an early age. He was taught guitar by his grandmother, whilst his grandfather played in a band called Buck and the Bucanneers, that included fiddle and double bass. His grandfather also had a great collection of records, and Tom’s early influences included Guy Lombardo and The Inkspots.
