VIDEO: A. Tom Collins Releases 'Hospital' Music Video
A. Tom Collins celebrated the national release of their debut full length album, Stick & Poke. The 10-song album was recorded and produced at Absinthe Studio by the legend, the mystery, Bob Ferbache, and A. Tom Collins. It was released by Greater Than Collective, the non-traditional Denver-based label founded and run by Pete Turner (Illegal Pete's) and Virgil Dickerson (Suburban Home Records). Watch the music video for his single "Hospital" below!
A. Tom Collins and his band are an act hard to pigeon-hole, navigating the murky swamps of New Orleans R&B and '60s Soul, and following the cues of diverse influences from Tom Waits and Cab Calloway, to The Stooges and Sam Cooke. A. Tom Collins drops anchor with an impressive crash at each and every port, transfixing bewildered audiences with its strange brand of old time futurism that is as familiar as it is refreshing. Expect wild horns, surprising rhythms, catchy gang chants, and one hell of a live show led by piano-man Aaron Collins, whom Denver's alt-weekly Westword called 'one of the city's best front-men.'
In its short history, A. Tom Collins has been a featured headliner the Denver Post Underground Music Showcase in 2011/12/13, made appearances at SXSW 11/12/13, Denver's Westword Music Showcase 2010 to 13, Snowball Music Festival 2012 in Vail, the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater, Bohemian Nights Festival in Ft. Collins, New Belgium's Tour de Fat, and toured the European continent this past summer with dates in Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, and the UK. They have shared bills with notable acts such as Alabama Shakes, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Sally Ford And The Sound Outside, March Fourth Marching Band, Nathaniel Rateliff, and the late, great T-Model Ford.
This fall of 2013, the band hits the road in support of their debut full-length 'Stick & Poke', produced by the legendary Bob Ferbache(Slim Cessna's Auto Club/16 Horsepower), is available now on CD, 12" Vinyl, and digitally everywhere. South West and West Coast dates TBA soon.
