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.

    Today,you made my day......!!! In fact I told you. Hearing your music as I walked up to the high street in Cheltenham was so beautiful and put a smile on my face. I bought your cd which I am listening to now,which is amazing,but what's doubly made my day was finding this website and reading about how you live your life,just fabulous ❤️ I have some land in Spain and am part of an off grid community of creative people,so it warmed my heart to see that you are of that nature. If you and your family ever want to check it out,I offer you an open invitation. Keep doing what you're doing,just lovely. Thank you for the music ❤️

    Great to see you again today man, a real shame I could not hang around a while. My best beloved will be getting the new CD for Mother's Day. She will think it such a cool present. Last time we saw you was ages ago in Painswick, so like other people posting it would be good to know where you will be playing. But maybe again that might take away from the spontenaity of what you do. Till we meet again Richard

    Saw you outside M&S last Sunday, bought the CD-R thats been played constantly since then. Reminds me of John Martyn. Enjoy the finger picking on acoustic/nylon guitar. Just downloaded Song for Light Warriors. How can i purchase/download the other CDs listed in your shop? Keep up the great music. Hope to see you again soon.
