Evolution at it's best when you follow your gut instinct. "Paper Brain" on the other hand is an epic concept album that explores the dark complexities of human vulnerability, atmospheric industrial hard rock fused with synth, acoustic folk and musical theater. Thom cast five diverse female lead vocalists (dubbed The Paper Choir): Local EnBrewsiast blogger Joan Childress Wilkerson, local artist and jewelry maker Addie Wuensch, Sam Carradori of the Dirty White Rags, local commercial analyst Jennifer Reid, and regional performer / metal welding artist Whitney. He also reached out to a few local musicians and friends (Mike Ruwe and Mike Phillips) to complete his vision. A notable contributor is Clyde Edgerton, American Author and Creative Writing Professor at UNCW, who offers a heartfelt banjo track on (“Far Away”).
There is always a story behind the music. I know you usually can't find time to open up your microscope and dig but that's another part of the journey to feel the words or notes coming out of a fellow humane. There will always be a person that lights up, and connects with his surroundings. Thom is a thinker and a doer, we would really love to sit on a porch with a beer and talk our musical hearts out. Really impressed with the collaboration bio on the official page.
