Deep Blues Festival 2009 – Tom VandenAvond, TX
“Tom VandenAvond was born and raised in Green Bay, Wisconsin. his fifth record, “You Oughta Know Me By Now” features touring legends Larry and his Flask. Tom was a contributor on the Independent Music Award winning “Hiram and Huddie”. Both albums available now on Hillgrass Bluebilly Records.
Tom VandenAvond embodies everything that makes alt-country awesome. He’s got a surly, drank-too-much-last-night-and-now-I-gotta-perform attitude. One can hear wisps of such late greats as Jimmie Rodgers or even Huddie Ledbetter in VandenAvond’s songs, which alternate between good ol’ country and low-key folksy ballads…” reverbnation bio
