We are pleased to announce that the incredible new single ‘Our 12-Bar Blues Too’ by ‘Tom & His Free Mockingbirds’ is now on the daily A-List Playlist. Listen out for both versions of the song ( Guitar and Piano ) day and night on the playlist + both songs will also be played as a special BLUES DBL POWERPLAY at 5:30 SA time every evening for the next month or more.
“Our 12-Bar Blues Too” is the mesmerizing new single from ‘Tom & His Free Mockingbirds’. ‘Tom & His Free Mockingbirds’ are a band of Independent Musicians, lead by Tom (songwriter-producer) based in Melbourne, Australia.
“Our 12-Bar Blues Too” is the 2nd single from their upcoming studio-album “All Shades of Blues and Dreams”.
The protagonists in this 3-mins story are the “12-Bar Blues” and “Blues” itself. The story criss-crosses between the struggles of our band and the struggles of the black musicians on the backdrop of slavery and racism. Our struggle is nothing compared to those extremely stiff struggles but nevertheless we draw grit-inspirations from them. Blues epitomise the triumph of humanity over tyranny, over the vicious racism of tyrants. We shall celebrate this humanity-triumphant forever, with blues.
