The TomiTom Sho

Bio modified from an article that was written by Laguna Beach Vibe
read original article here

Tom Licon’s special connection to his daughter Tomi, began at infancy. He could see in her eyes she was gifted, dynamic and a child with a sharp sense of humor. Tomi represents the third family collaboration and they perform every Saturday and every other Sunday at the coveted corner of Forest Ave and Coast Hwy in Laguna Beach.

At the ripe ol’ age of 12 Tomi has been playing half her life. Tom is an artist to his core. He schooled her on scales before chords and they’ve fine-tuned original songs like “Peanut Butter and Classical Jam”, “Simple Song” and “Broken String on PCH” as well as covers like “Low Budget” by The Kinks, “The Weight” by The Band and Johnny Horton’s spirited “Battle of New Orleans”. As the soloist, Tomi’s Spanish Requinto guitar strums a higher pitch than a traditional guitar and the small size instrument fits her to a T.

Tom compares their duo to a Mariachi Instrumentation of Classic Rock. Working so closely with your father isn’t always harmonious. Tomi’s main complaint is that her dad often repeats stuff, however his straightforward manner of speaking is always met with a laugh. For Tom, nothing brings more joy than harmonizing with someone that you love.

Drew Dolan

Years on the road as a nomad eventually brought Drew Dolan to the realization of his purpose: to connect people through music. This approach has combined a genuine need for cathartic creation that simultaneously draws a thread to the listener. With story-telling lyrics that are delivered with a soulful voice that travels from silky smooth to as gritty as gravel, his “true stories” matched with his keyboard playing groove their way into the ears and hearts of whoever listens.

With a style that has a firm foundation in his Chicago roots, Drew Dolan draws influences from all over the map. With hints of Bill Withers, Leon Russell, Dr. John, Ray Charles, The Meters to name a few, he bridges the gap between yesteryear and present day.

Dolan was the former lead singer/writer of The Proof., who released an EP called “Bang Bang” (leading single “Happy Street”), enjoyed success online with features on Jam in the Van and Sofar Sounds and quickly attracted a Soundcloud following that reached over 200,000 spins in less than two years. The music found a home on terrestrial radio as well on esteemed stations such as KCRW (featured release on “Morning Becomes Eclectic”) and many other non-com/college stations across the country. After years of playing some of LA’s most renowned stages (The Troubadour, The Hotel Cafe, Harvelle’s, Mrs. Fish) the band recently decided to move in different directions.

He is currently writing, playing as a soloist and collaborating with a new cast of talented musicians. Whether playing solo or with his new project “The Council,” Dolan’s sonic offering is to be experienced and shared.

Stay tuned for new releases coming out at the end of 2017!

Kate Isenberg

“Impeccable songwriting” — in the words of one reviewer — makes Los Angeles-based Kate Isenberg stand out from other girls (and guys) with guitars. With clear, soulful vocals and alternate-tuning guitar riffs that make unusual chords sound easy, Isenberg’s style of folk-pop is both sophisticated and accessible. Listeners gravitate to her songs for both the ear candy and the thought-provoking, storytelling lyrics.

Her first studio solo album, THE TIME COMES ON HUMMING TRACKS, was a finalist for the annual Indie Acoustic Project’s Best Female Singer-Songwriter Album. Her second studio album, GOLD RUSH TOWN, received college and commercial radio play around the U.S. and was an IAP finalist for Best Lyrics. The albums were co-produced by Isenberg with Jon Evans (bassist, Tori Amos) and feature guest performers such as accordionist/organist Julie Wolf (Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco) and trumpeter Erik Jekabson (John Mayer).

In addition to being a songwriter, Isenberg is an animator. She has animated her own songs as well as those of other songwriters. She is now at work developing an animated series for television.
