Ruminations

Tom Ralston's first album cover photo captures the duality of Tom's two top talents: concrete and music. The songs on this maiden album are heart felt and expressive.

An Artist's First Album

What do you do when you have a bunch of great songs that you've written but never recorded? You hire a bunch of experienced musicians, a producer, a string section arranger, a horn section arranger, a recording engineer, a photographer and a graphic designer then record an album and fulfill your destiny.

Through his quest of musical fulfillment, Tom has developed great friendships with all of his musicians, technicians and promotional team. Tom says “Working and playing with both friends and talented musicians is priceless; it’s like bringing the Berkeley School of Music to my rehearsal and recording rooms. Most of all it’s like medicine that makes me feel incredible; all of my troubles and cares melt away.”
