Welcome

Hello, I'm Tom McNair. I Play Guitar, Saxophone and I sing and beatbox and I mix them all together using a loop pedal. I record the loops LIVE on stage and create the sound of a full band. Mainly beautiful Reggae and Blues but also upbeat Funk and Dance grooves. I'm Currently touring the UK promoting my
latest album "Song For Light Warriors" which has a strong "Acoustic Blues" influence with flavours of Reggae and the "singer songwriter" kind of genre. I worked hard to keep the feel of this album very organic and intimate.
   I'm following my dream of being an independent musician, Writing and recording music inspired by my experiences. Also important to me is the lifestyle that I have achieved with this endeavour of music. I spend a lot of time with my wife and children and we live in an old library van. The humble abode means that we don't need loads of money to sustain ourselves and that is why I get to spend lots of time with my family and why I am so blooming happy so much of the time. The poignant part of this to me is that the money part is a TRAP that can require loads of work or commitment or selling your soul (doing it just for the money) just to stay in the trap. where as lower outgoings require less of these so I can WORK with my kids on their ABC's (and mine) and commit to doing things that I want to do and facilitating things that my family want to do and I don't sell my soul in the process.

i do it in the street!!!

This website is not just here to promote my music. there is a Forum here for conversation about positively changing society or maybe creating a space in society where people who dream of living a simple life close to the land and each other can do so - opting out of the rat race and the strenuous taxation which is placed on our time and money.

   We can learn how to create useful things and trade with each other cultivate land and grow food. Love real life. and live in communities together. To me, working at a job that just provides money to buy food and pay for a roof over your head is a distant cousin of real life. I would like to get closer to actually living.
  
   You can
become a member
of this website and contribute to this conversation - I'm not an expert, I just have a dream and would like to make friends with other dreamers and experts and anyone who wants to JOIN IN.

    Hi Tom, l got drawn out of a shop in Bath yesterday. Almost like being pulled out by an invisible string. That was just your guitar talking to me. Then you started to sing and your voice reached in and squeezed my heart until my eyes began to leak. A rare and magical experience. Thank you!

    Hi Tom, We stopped to listen while at Bath Christmas market, the crowds where doing my head in but listening to your music took the edge off. Love the cd and your music, proper musician. Hope all goes well in the future and your talent gets recognised by a wider audience.

    Like others on a murky day in Cheltenham I stopped to listen, & bought your CD. I've just bought the download so I can give the CD away and spread the love. Sorry about the 'odd' request Tom, and Thank you for your kind permission. Good luck in all you do.

    Miserable day in town, but your music lifted our mood. My Mum, who is in her latter seventies, made me stop to give you more money as we passed on our return journey. We hope others enjoyed your performance as much as us. Good luck
