note from producer Ben Harper

Tom Freund / Collapsible Plans by Ben Harper I have been moved by Tom's music since the first note we played together in my family's music store after closing time -- just he and I with two guitars until the morning hours. He was the first person I had ever heard that was my age, writing songs of his own, and they were amazing. Tom is an extraordinarily soulful multi-instrumentalist, Ben Harper & Tom Freund - Pleasure and Pain and also a one take phenom when it comes to recording, making my role as producer that much easier, enabling us to complete recording for "Collapsible Plans" in under ten days. A few of the songs on this record have been previously released, but I felt the record would be best served with not just new material, but also some of Tom's strongest material from the past… These are songs that deserve the entire world as an audience, and I didn't want to let the potential of that chance get away with "Collapsible Plans." I appreciate and thank everyone at .net for checking this out, and for making this site what it is. ben

Great Release!

I heard Collapsible Plans live over a year ago and I've waited for its release since July 2007. The whole CD was worth the wait!

Another Freundian Adventure

I've been a fan of Tom's music for a long time, dating back to his first album 10 years ago, North American Long Weekend. He is an incredible songwriter, musician and vocalist. Soulful, rootsy, jazzy, stark, lush .. all of the above. The digital age will serve his incredible catalog well. I really enjoyed reading Ben Harper's comments above. All these years later, Ben is a big star but is still clearly drawn to play music with Tom and that says a lot. I love Collapsible Plans. Lush, poignant, honest ... a sound that's a little Tom Waits, a little Tom Petty .. but all Tom Freund. Jackson Browne and Victoria Williams duets are great too.

Singer/songwriter Tom Freund, whose sound has garnered comparisons to Tom Waits and Rickie Lee Jones, released his debut album, North American Long Weekend, in 1998. The effort featured such accomplished guests as pedal steel player Greg Leisz and jazz organist Jimmy Smith. Freund, originally from New York, attended Claremont College in California in the early '90s and performed as a duo with future star Ben Harper. The two recorded a hard-to-find vinyl-only album in 1992 called Pleasure and Pain....
