Tom Brosseau: Empty Houses Are Lonely

Tom's first album on the UK's Fat Cat label is a sparing but far from austere listen.
Softly-plucked guitar leads you on an intriguing, intimate and exciting secret walk through the woods of his mind.
Evading the wolves of traditional verse-chorus-bridge songs, Brosseau takes you instead to beautiful clearings, enchanting sun-dashed dells and to the edges of the chilling night through his wonderfully evocative quivering voice.
Occasional mouth-organ, violin or brushed drums accompany, but never detract from, Tom's folky focus of guitar and voice.
