Old Lost John 14


Malmö Sweden   Feb 2007


Artist Bio

Influences:   Old leather bound books, seasoned wood, small birds, whispering winds and speaking trees, wounded hearts and weathered souls...

Fans, friends, fairies and fools! My name is Tomas, and Old Lost John is my musical project. Once a woodsman and a horse-keeper, I now live in the city of Malmo, Sweden, writing and recording my dusky americana folk.

My albums are available from CDBaby or directly from my website (preferred). Downloads from iTunes and others.

The tree/head album art was drawn by Susanne Samuelsson, one of my talented friends.

    Wow....thanks for all of your helpful and kind comments, Tomas. Really, I appreciate your taking the time to listen and offer thoughtful comments. I'm crunching now for an upcoming gig (my first two-set outing with this particular trio) so I've been struggling to find listening time but hope to soon Btw, regarding my tone, I have several guitars but have been recording with a Larrivee D-09 through a Yeti USB mic into Garage Band. I'm far from a sound techie on this stuff so I'm glad if it's coming out alright.

    Just want to say I enjoyed the hell out of your songs. Thanks for the great tunes.

    Ha, ich bin fertig! Fünfzehn. (15.)

    Absolutely loved "Sycamore Tree". Wondered if you'd consider an interpretation of "Rattlesnake Ballad "(http://fawm.org/songs/74869/). Good stuff!

    Thanks for coming to the rescue, unzonging me!

    Thanks for explanation about Papa Legba. Very cool. It's tricky with including references like that...sometimes they add intrigue and, in your case, I could roll without knowing (but suspecting) his background but it's even more impactful to know. You absolutely capture the feel of the place. Ironically, one person who I think has captured some of that NOLA-area vibe is Robbie Robertson in his post-Band days; for example, "Somewhere Down the Crazy River") -- check him it out if you're not familiar. Anyway, I enjoyed the song and look forward to hearing your other songs. Oh...and thanks too for your encouraging comments on my political song! Very helpful.

    Your comments on "10 Feet Tall" are a real boost.

    Hello! Thanks for giving me a nudge.
    I have been enjoying your new songs - especially, Fine like this. That's a corker.

  • @famouspatrick  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the nice comments on my "Reflections" skirmish. That style seems to be part of my DNA, and I can get into the process fairly quickly. Love your stuff!

  • @johncrossman  Feb 2017

    Hey thanks, now your secret is out... 😀 Then let me be the 1,000th person to tell you how fantastic your voice, and the way you employ it, sounds. Fawm on!

  • @boyatheart  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the kind comments on my music Tomas. I shall be checking back to hear more of your songs. Best of luck 😀

  • @johncrossman  Feb 2017

    Howdy Tomas, I stopped by to say I enjoy your tunes each fawm and to ask a tech question (from a very non-technical person). Your vocals are so intimate. Just wondering what you're using to record? You're capturing your tactile vocals so perfectly.

  • @wickedmessenger1  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your kind comments on my song "Walden Pond." I appreciate the listen.

    Appreciate your comment on My Favorite Dreams. I want to push myself to create the kinds of images you do. Though maybe not so dark 😉
