Biography

With the release of Tom Savage’s fourth studio album, we are witness to the continuing evolution of an artist. However, there is an important distinction to be made between Savage’s earlier solo records, and this new release under the Tom Savage Trio banner.

For this record, the Kingston, Ontario-based songwriter has all but abandoned his acoustic guitar, in favour of a raucous, electrified sound. Backed by bass(Geoff Chown) and drums ( Sandy Mackenzie), “Savage replicates the live bar-room feel that lends itself well to his music”. - Scott Chomistek, Beatroute magazine

TST’s sound is often compared with modern bands like Son Volt and Drive-By Truckers. These comparisons are welcome, but the band draws their inspiration from the artists on which they cut their musical teeth. Specifically, Neil Young’s “Ragged Glory” album and The Cult’s “Electric”.
Savage’s writing style owes much to Mr. Young as well. In recent years, however, he has been increasingly influenced by the work of Robert Earl Keen and Townes Van Zandt.

A Tom Savage Trio live show is something to behold. The grainy spontaneity of 70’s Jam Rock, a dash of 80’s Punk, a hint of outlaw Rockabilly, anchored by Savage’s impeccable song writing, meld together to bring the audience member for a ride down the dirt road of rock and roll.
