Tommy Elskes(els-kiss) is a musician's musician. He has that all too rare ability to truly affect people with his music. Ask The General Norman Shwarzkopf, Lyle Lovett or my 9 year old son Ryan. They will all tell you he is the best. Tommy's music is a wonderful combination of soulful R&B,blues,rock,country and folk. Did I miss anything! His music defines accessibility. He started his musical career somewhere around the age of 10 with the Albuquerque Boys Choir and has been charming people with his music ever since. Tommy credits aggregate influences for his vocal ability to tell a story. "It doesn't matter what year it may be, entertainment remains essentially unchanged. Basically you're still a minstrel, and as such you're not that far removed from the Middle Ages. Your job is still to stir emotions and make listeners feel something. The more personal experience you can bring to bear emotionally as a singer the easier it becomes to persuade the audience to share your vision." This philosophy is evidenced by his vocal versatility which ranges from a cappella solos to performances with stage bands and everything in between. Whether it's blues, rock'n'roll, gospel, country or the Star Spangled Banner, Tommy's vocal style exudes conviction and eludes classification. He has shared the stage with the likes of Muddy Waters, Carl Perkins, Richie Havens, Lightnin' Hopkins, B.B. King and Lyle Lovett just to name a few. I am very proud to have the chance to work with Tommy. His first Horizon Records release titled "BOHEMIA" is available online and in stores. There are some samples of the new CD in the music section of this site. I hope you enjoy!
