Tom Manche and the Young Coots: New CD
What do you do if you live in Nashville, surrounded by heartfelt country twangers and ultra-groovy alt-rock hipsters? If you’re singer-songwriter-producer-guitarist Tom Manche (MAN-chee), you head in another direction, towards smart, funny, quirky songs in musically diverse styles that call to mind Newman, Zappa, Mull, Silverstein, and Bare Naked Ladies. Manche is joined by the Young Coots, a stellar line-up of Nashville hotshot musicians, including Jerry Douglas, Jim Hoke, Dave Francis, Vince Santoro, and Mark T. Jordan.
