Holland,  Thompson and Tooch

About Holland, Thompson and Tooch

holland, thompson and tooch Remember when lyrics were important? They still are on Holland, Thompson and Tooch.  Insightful, clever, funny, inspiring – these are the lyrics of H, T, and T. This recording is Americana.  It is all original music.  It lights your path as you travel from roots country to stirring folk anthems to social consciousness humor. Flute, keyboard, and bass solos accent the acoustic sound, along with masterful harmonies showcased in the a cappella opener. One song offers an introduction by wild geese in flight – real wild geese! Melissa Holland’s voice is often compared to Joni Mitchell and Judy Collins.  Her biting visceral humor is both amusing and thought-provoking.  Here flute solos are a high point on the recording. “I CanSee Me” is a stunning original 1940’s style love song. LuAnne Thompson’s rich and powerful voice is roots country.  Her lyrics are clearly heartfelt, her message honest and sincere, delivering emotion with impact.  “Cabin On a Hill” is Patsy Cline-Hank Williams country at its best.  It is reassuring to know that such music can still be written today. John Martucci’s warm, versatile voice complements his complex melodies.  His modern folk style is suited to his often stirring lyrics.  “Keep On Chippin’” won him personal praise from folk legend Pete Seeger, who asked for the lyrics to publish in “Sing Out” magazine. The whole is even more than the sum of all the exceptional parts.  Let Holland, Thompson and Tooch be your incandescence on a musical journey.  Website:  www.hollandthompsonandtooch.com/ Cd’s available for purchase at CD Baby Contact:  (845) 831-3740             mhollandmusic@yahoo.com
