Singer, songwriter, entertainer, poet and teacher, Tom Kimmel is all of these things and more. Since 1980 dozens of Tom’s compositions have been recorded by a host of major artists, including Linda Ronstadt, Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker, Art Garfunkel and Randy Travis. They’ve been featured in films from Twins to Serendipity and Runaway Bride, and in television shows from Captain Kangaroo and Touched By An Angel to Dawson’s Creek. An award-winning artist in his own right, he has released seven solo albums, published a book of poems and led songwriting workshops and classes around the country and in Europe. “Kimmel’s moody, textured songwriting reaches into soulful realms that few Music Row pros enter.” ~ Nashville Scene. A self described “closet poet” until the publication of “The Sweetest & the Meanest,” in 2006, Tom has been a featured writer at book festivals and writing retreats, and his poems have been published in a number of poetry and literary journals. And for many of his fans the spoken word element in his concerts is as special as his songs. In demand as a songwriting teacher and lecturer, Tom frequently offers workshop instruction tying the creative spirit to the nuts and bolts of composition. Add it all together and you’ll find that Tom Kimmel is definitely all these things and more. He’s a unique artist who continues to write, record, entertain and inspire at the highest levels.
