Tom Savage is what one might refer to as a triple-threat. One part truth-telling troubadour, one part death-defying guitar slinger, and one part Country Blues howler. Each facet of his formidable on-stage persona carefully crafted over a 20+ year devotion to the composition and performance of song.

CKRL 89,1″…moments of toughness with unbridled beauty. ” – Invisible Ink Music Blog”…magic present … an understanding of the vision of the song — crafting with clear original intention.” – ExclaimTom Savage is a Kingston singer-songwriter whose songs shine with old school folk, bare-bones and stripped down. – Graham Rockingham, Hamilton Spectator“Savage is an excellent songwriter. Often poetic in their deceptive simplicity, often politically informed, his lyrics recall the best folk singers of the sixties. The frequent comparisons to Dylan are, in this case, justified.” – Aaron Carr – Nanton News“Throughout the album, I hear ghosts of John Campbell, Knopfler, Springsteen, Steve Young and shades of newer artists who, while not well known, have their moments of musical greatness. They are the ghosts in my own head, though, for it becomes more obvious with each listen that Savage writes and performs what he has to, not what he hears. Such is of what the good ones are made. A big huzzah to Geoff Chown for hearing what Savage had to offer, to the various musicians who added their little bits which made the whole as good as it is, and to Tom Savage himself who has found his voice, and I am not referring to that which emanates from his throat. What a voice it is.”
