Hailing from Southern California, Tom Ricci is a driven, passionate and charismatic songwriter with a unique approach to his work. His music is a balanced blend of rock and roll energy and deep singer-songwriter lyricism, in the vein of artists the likes of The Replacements, Tom Petty or Neil Young, just to mention a few.
His recent album, “Escape into life” is all about great melodies, uncompromising rock and roll vibes and thought-provoking lyrics that add thickness and dimension to every track. From Earth-shattering rockers the likes of “Gave it all to you” to mellow and introspective tunes in the vein of “Don’t give up on yourself”, Tom set out to craft a diverse and accomplished record that will please rock fans of all backgrounds, from discerning underground punk rockers to arena rock fiends.
