Tommy Homonym is a late-blooming artist, following the leads of Susan Boyle, Clementine Hunter and Grandma Moses.

 

Openly imaginary, openly old-ish and openly evasive about his sexuality, the reclusive Tommy specializes in both original songs and inventive covers of pop and rock tunes, which he arranges and produces in collaboration with trusted friends who are real, as opposed to late-blooming, musicians.

 

Tommy’s debut album was “Uglier Than You” in 2013. His most recent EP, “Two Waltzes,” includes two songs written by Tommy and arranged and produced by John Allen Watts, featuring a band of internationally acclaimed jazz musicians.

 

Tommy has made three music videos in collaboration with Texas filmmaker George Wada.

 

The video for his original song “Ride a Wave” has been selected for screening at film festivals around the world.

TOMMY HOMONYM RELEASES TWO WALTZES EP

 

New double single features sophisticated pop-jazz arrangements.

 

Jersey City, New Jersey – Reclusive singer-songwriter Tommy Homonym has released Two Waltzes, a “double single” featuring original songs by Tommy, with arrangements and production by John Allen Watts.

 

The songs on Two Waltzes, “Like a Ghost” (4:17) and “Love is Fun” (3:35), find Tommy venturing into fresh musical territory with sophisticated pop-jazz arrangements devised by John.

 

The songs explore the ups and downs (mostly downs) of relationships, from the euphoria of new romance – “the highest of the highs us higher apes have found” – to the heartbreak of “love undone… the single most unwelcome, unpleasant surprise.”

 

Along with Tommy’s vocals, the songs feature acoustic bass by Paul Nowinksi, drums by Luiz Ebert, piano by Klaus Mueller, flugelhorn (on “Like a Ghost”) by Dan Urness and alto flute (on “Love is Fun”) by Jorge Continentino.

 

The EP was recorded in New York City and Yonkers, and is mixed and mastered by David Darlington for Bass Hit Recording in New York.

 

Two Waltzes is available for streaming and download on most major music services, including Spotify, iTunes and Amazon.

 

Tommy’s previous releases include the album Uglier Than You, the single “What I’ll Do All Day,” and covers of REM’s “Let Me In” and Carole King’s “I Feel the Earth Move.”

 

Tommy’s videos, created in collaboration with Texas filmmaker George Wada, can be seen on YouTube and Vimeo.

 

His video “Ride a Wave” has proven popular on the film festival circuit, with screenings in Los Angeles, Dallas, Fort Worth, Kansas City, Muskogee, Jersey City, Asbury Park, and Lonavla, India.

 

Tommy – who is rumored to be the “openly imaginary, openly bisexual and openly old-ish” alter ego of New York playwright and former Dallas Morning News writer Tom Sime – has recently given live performances in Dallas and Kansas City.

 

“I’m excited to come out of my shell to sing for people,” says

Tommy.

 

“Though I’m also excited to get back into my shell as soon as possible.”

He began his musical career in the 90’s playing in various bands and touring around the UK and later Germany and Southern Europe.

 

He eventually settled in Germany and over a period of ten years got involved in two bands writing and playing their own original material.

 

The latter band Piping Toms who had a small following, released an album titled “Voyeurythm” in 2002 which had a moderate success in Germany.

 

As of 2004 the band took an indefinite hiatus so Barry continued to write and perform solo over the following years.

 

In 2017 he began sorting through songs he had written over the previous four years which culminated in the recording and producing of his first solo album “Leave It All Behind”.

 

The album was recorded in the USA, UK and Germany and co-produced by top guitarist Justin Lewis and Grammy award winning producer / engineer Tony Daigle (BB.King, Mark Knopfler)in Lafayette, Louisiana.

 

The album of twelve Pop / Rock songs has just been released and is already making an impact especially in Barry’s second home of Malaysia and Asia where Pop Rock and Adult Contemporary are still very popular.
