Thom Swift 

The Fortunate Few (Stonefly)

thom-review.jpg
Thom Swift follows up 2010’s Blue Sky Day with his third solo recording, The Fortunate Few. Newly released Tuesday, Swift is slated to play during ECMW Friday, March 8 at the Waterfront Warehouse (see the listings, page 15). The Fortunate Few features some lighter-sounding fare (“Sweet Thing”, “Runaway Train”) but for the most part, the album locks into a firm roots-blues groove, steady rolling with a slick crew of backing musicians supporting Swift’s plaintive ballads---odes to his family, musings on love and contemplations on life, altogether a rather Springsteen-sian feel, rootsy, rugged and mellow.
