Thom Swift 

Blue Sky Day (Ground Swell)

Stepping out from Hot Toddy, Swift handpicked some of the most respected players in the region: Geoff Arsenault, Brian Bourne and JP Cormier, to name a few. You get some flourishes along with a more layered sound. As a singer, Swift likes to hold a note, even on the rockers. "Home" depicts the feeling of displacement after the youthful rush to get away in the most basic, heartfelt of ways. The instrumentals, especially "Seafoam," open up space in an album, not unlike Mark Knopfler. The one cover, "No Depression in Heaven" by AP Carter, is where Swift's voice cuts loose with healing power.
