Thomas John Cadrin, a Boston-based solo artist has roots in pop rock, folk and jazz and he thumps it out solo on an acoustic guitar. On his latest EP, Play The Room, he puts together a takeaway collection of songs, each recorded live, all in one take, in one big room throughout the course of one evening.
The guitar arrangements have the intricacy of progressive pop & rock, while the lyrics remain direct and to the point, creating a casual clash. These tracks are intimate and revealing, with raw mistakes & shining moments of glory.
When you listen to these songs, you feel like you’re sitting in a room with a guy who’s just flipped opened his journal and started singing along.
