Artist discography


Does anyone remember Tommy Henriksen? If you dont? Either havent you heard of him before or you have a weird melodic modern pop taste. His major label debut from 1999 is one of the best modern pop records in my collection and should be on all the readers wanted lists after having been reading this. This second album was released in 2000 and I have totally missed it of any reason. Can you ever me Tommy? One good reason for having missed is that its released on the indie label ZuZu, but its no excuse. Cause this is almost as good as his Capital release. This is magnificent experimental pop in the higher grade with samples from India, The middle and hundred of other things. Add then crunchy guitars and the most important thing of it all, good melodies, and we have a new "must" album from this New Yorker. Remember also that he also has written all the song, produced, engineered and played all the instruments on this album. The opener "Radio Zoo" feels like a new "I see the sound" and is one of best on the album. But "Find forgiveness" and the fifth one which has sound very close to Bran Van 3000s "Drinking in La" are two other killer tracks. Buy this one his website or at as soon as possible folks. Tommy rules!!!!

He is writing a lot of songs for other artists for the moment. He's a fabulous guy.

Where is he now?

I remember him from High School and local bar bands from the 80's. I think his music is excellent. It doesn't surprise me that he's done so much as he was very serious about music even as a teenager.

listen on spotify

Did you know that?

Current Rentals singer Matt Sharp used to the bass player for Weezer. He can be heard on the albums The Blue Album and Pinkerton.
