Tom Martin, aka Shouting Thomas, is a multi-faceted guitar player who has played both in acoustic and electric bands of many ilks (Blues, Rock, Reggae, Ska, Rock, Irish, Old Timey, Gypsy Jazz, to name a few) and throughout has maintained a solo career, including solo guitar pieces and songs that incorporate elements of folk, jazz, celtic music, country blues, full tilt rock, and that nebulous new I-know-it-when-I-hear-it category, Americana. Funny how a band with one Arky and four Canadians became the touchstone for a broad based style of music called Americana.
Tom began his musical trek in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 60's and the 70's, and not to be pigeon-holed, then moved to Nebraska , where he played in Blues and Rock bands and also soaked up fiddle tunes from both sides of the pond.
After 30 years in Nebraska, Kismet has landed him in Austin, Texas. With a Tele in one hand, Collings flat top in the other, balancing a Resonator on his nose, ready for anything, and excitedly anticipating whatever opportunities fate may throw his way.
