News:  In June I will be releasing a live music performance project “Live at 88.5” from a radio broadcast I did  with the Tropical Sons on WMNF Radio.   It’s great that there are still some radio stations with studios. This was done just before our appearance at the Uke it Out Festival in St Petersburg Florida. https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/tomhood/liverpool-birds

I am producing 8 music videos to accompany the “I Believe” release and will be posting on youtube.
