Hi my Peops,
Here I am making a new record. ’Bout 3 songs in. Recording between tours and writing whenever I can – even on chairlifts ( hear soon to be recorded: “Happy Days Lunch Box”). My friends and I are set on making a really great record – a true representation of where I am right now in my life. Some friends you may have heard of (like Ben Harper, like Brett Dennen) have also lent their hands in the first couple songs (“Angel Eyes” and “Weekend Guy”) already completed.
I started this Pledge Campaign because it seemed like a really good way to get help from the people that care the most – the fans of my music. Y’all are the best! And I "pledge"to you to deliver a bad ass (but warm hearted) record!
Please see the incentives, events and avant-garde interactions being auctioned off. Ooh la la.! All proceeds will support this recording (and releasing) process in the world of the independent record biz. Also, a percentage will go to St Joseph Center, located in Venice, CA doing terrific vital work in West LA. http://www.stjosephctr.org/
You will be updated as we roll along – sights, sounds, and insights into the recording process, plus just some good ’ol time photos and videos. Thanks for listening and supporting!!! To quote my new song, “Angel Eyes” – “You make it possible to do the things I do.”
Merci Beaucoup, Love and Gratitude, T

What song is your very favorite? If you love it, and Tom Freund, he will record it for you, and send you the video, with dedication. For all time. Epic.
We all know it sucks to wait in line. Or stand behind tall people at an intimate show. SO…. why don’t you be a VIP already?! Tickets, backstage pass, Perks and Recreation. At a gig near you.
Everyone knows the really cool stuff goes down late. Maybe post-gig, maybe on a whim. But the private jams at musician’s studios are things to remember. Insider. Special. Play with the real deals!
It’s like Fantasy Camp for Rock N Roll. Support Tom at this level and strut your stuff on stage for a paying audience. Sing, do percussion, prove that you can hang. Choose yer show. We’re already proud of you.
Ukuleles never fail to improve moods. Get one of your own, previously played and signed by Tom Freund, and stoke every party you attend ever after when you bring it out. ALOHA!!!
Come to the studio in Venice, CA – Hang for the afternoon and absorb the magic of making this recording happen before your eyes. Patron! Rare opportunity = Street Cred. Do it.
Let’s say you dig Tom Freund. And Venice. Then get it for yourself via a bike tour with docent Tom. See and feel where song inspirations have come from and get your own. Top it off with a sunset cocktail by the beach. Done.
Sit in on the recording of the new album, and get the coveted credit: Shaker – Mr. or Ms. Blank How awesome is that?! Plus it will be fun as hell. Epic for all time.
Tom will sit in on your recording or join you at a gig (L.A. area or you’ll need to get him there), playing whatever your song needs: Guitar, piano, stand up bass, mandolin, ukulele, back up vocals/harmonies, or beat box (just kidding) and you get to say that you play with Tom Freund (and vice versa). Elevate your song!"
At your place (if not L.A. area, you gotta spring for travel or catch him on tour, folks). You pick the songs for an acoustic evening of music. Curate the memory of a grand ol’ time for you and your friends, forever.
What?! A world renowned artist recording a song JUST. FOR. YOU?! Give him your (or your loved one’s) name, 5 of your favorite things and a vibe (swampy blues, reggae, etc) and this dude will customize an orignal song for YOU and YOURS. No way.
A full-on house party entertained by Tom Freund and his musical cronies.This could include ANYONE. Needs to be L.A. area or travel paid. If you’ve ever seen one of his shows, you know this will be the talk of your town. Excel, Party Thrower!
