Artist Biography:
Thom Chacon could be the subject for one of his own songs. On his self-titled sophomore album the Durango, CO, singer-songwriter takes on the “American Dream” in no uncertain terms. Recorded at Pie Studios (Glen Cove, N.Y) with Bob Dylan’s rhythm section of drummer George Recile and bassist Tony Garnier, Thom Chacon offers compelling narratives that focus on the forgotten members of society.
Moving to LA in his early 20s, Thom originally sought fame and fortune in the L.A. music scene, then quickly realized he needed something more authentic. He took a job on a horse ranch in the foothills of Los Angeles, learning how to ride and take care of the horses.
Eventually, Thom decided to move to Durango, Colorado, seeking more of life’s outdoor adventures, and to concentrate on his songwriting. Thom became a part time fly-fishing guide, and when not on tour, takes people on horseback into the mountains of Colorado and New Mexico.
With his current music reflecting a good dose of lifetime experiences, along with the hard-earned wisdom of a man who’s paid his dues both on the land and the water, Thom Chacon is now being touted by the press as “an Americana original”.
