NEW EP FROM AMERICAN SONGWRITER CELEBRATES THE ‘UNDER DOG’
Sit back and get your notepad ready because it’s time to delve into a different perspective in Americana songwriting. Following his 10 song manifesto Blood in the USA, Thom Chacon returns with a four-song EP entitled American Way.
The new EP features four new tracks that take a raw look into Thom Chacon’s mind when he deals with the topics of love, loss and patriotism. When asked about how he composes a song, Chacon says, “I write about the things that keep me up at night”.
American Way is a soothing EP, which shows how Chacon can tell a story with not much more than his voice and an old acoustic guitar. The new EP was recorded in the winter of 2018 with a barebones cast of all-star musicians including Tony Garnier (Bob Dylan), Tommy Mandel (Dire Straits), and features a haunting cover of “One of Us”, the hit song popularized by Joan Osborne in 1995.
