The band loves all genres but often veered towards Blues and Folk Rocks. Tom as a front man is greatly influenced by blues legends Duke Ellington & His Big Band, and Count Basie & His Orchestra. His benchmark on songwriting is Bob Dylan.

Season Greetings! “Blues Gift from the One & Only.. (FT Raelle Grace)” single is out now.

Speaking about the single, Tom said “It is the 1st single from our Christmas album “Blues Gift for Christmas”. We commit ourselves to create new Blues-Christmas songs each Christmas to celebrate the empowering Blues-Gift to humanity. The protagonists in this 3-mins story are centred on Count Basie and his amazing Orchestra. The story celebrates Blues-Gift to humanity, like a 12-bar phrase shout out by Count Basie and his Orchestra. We created and produced this song on a shoe-string budget and innovate with vocals to symbolise Count Basie’s Orchestra. We hope we did justice to Count Basie and His Orchestra, as well as a Blues Gift for Christmas. We shall follow-up with an instrumental version to mirror a little our progression towards a Big Band set-up“.

From Struggles to Triumph: ‘Our 12-Bar Blues Too’ from ‘Tom & His Free Mockingbirds’ Chronicles Humanity’s Resilience on the Hollywood Playlist

We are pleased to announce that the incredible new single ‘Our 12-Bar Blues Too’ by ‘Tom & His Free Mockingbirds’ is now on the daily A-List Playlist. Listen out for both versions of the song ( Guitar and Piano ) day and night on the playlist + both songs will also be played as a special BLUES DBL POWERPLAY at 5 PM Pacific USA time to start your night every night for the next month or more.

“Our 12-Bar Blues Too” is the mesmerizing new single from ‘Tom & His Free Mockingbirds’. ‘Tom & His Free Mockingbirds’ are a band of Independent Musicians, lead by Tom (songwriter-producer) based in Melbourne, Australia.

“Our 12-Bar Blues Too” is the 2nd single from their upcoming studio-album “All Shades of Blues and Dreams”.

The protagonists in this 3-mins story are the “12-Bar Blues” and “Blues” itself. The story criss-crosses between the struggles of our band and the struggles of the black musicians on the backdrop of slavery and racism. Our struggle is nothing compared to those extremely stiff struggles but nevertheless we draw grit-inspirations from them. Blues epitomise the triumph of humanity over tyranny, over the vicious racism of tyrants. We shall celebrate this humanity-triumphant forever, with blues.
