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.

    Hi Tom, I was in a trance listening to your music in Stratford (03 June 2017) The Soul and passion just ooozes out, I purchased "Love Like Fire" album and you kindly signed it. It was great to listen to on the journey home. I have just downloaded "song for Light Warriors " from here. Love your outlook on life. I bailed out of the rat race and now spend priceless days on my allotment. Would like to see maybe a calendar of where you are performing during the year......so maybe I could catch up with you again. Keep up the amazing music......and best wishes to you and your family....on the wonderful journey. Thanks for sharing :)........Nigel

    Hi Tom, enjoyed your spot in Cheltenham last week (19th), must be the 5th time I've caught you in as many years. Have some of the CDs but great to see there's some downloads to get hold of. I'd really like to see a calendar of events so can keep up with your gigs more easily. I assumed these might be on the mailing list that I subscribed to... I have tons of time lately and travel around a bit in the South West, would be great to soak up some more great street gigs now the Sun is out in the sky. I'm off to Cuba this week but your downloads are coming with me. Take care, keep rockin' and catch you next few weeks I hope.

    Just heard you playing in Cheltenham, bought your CD and rushed home to listen. ( I am in my seventies.) My son called in and was also captivated with your music. He found this page so we could learn more. How many people can say they are happy these days? I love your outlook on life and think your children are very very lucky. Long may you continue.

    I listened to you for 40 minutes in the sunshine and then had a quick chat with you. Your music has a lovely vibe and your voice has a lot of soul, I love loop music – and I like your philosophy as well. I hope I'll catch you again in Bath. God bless you!

Thank you for cd so we can keep yours with us! X
