Tommy Guerrero - From the Soil to the Soul CD -The CD pulses with Tommy's distinctive organic, atmospheric sound, yet this time with a heavier resonance. Beasties-infused stripped down funk is layered with Americana, heavy psych, lo-fi fuzz and Latin rhythms, all with a breezy, laid-back San Francisco vibe. Recorded primarily in his home studio Guerrero wrote, arranged and played nearly all the instruments on the album, including bass, guitar, keyboards, percussion and kalimba. Renowned street artist Barry McGee, aka Twist, designed the cover art and Tommy called on friends Lyrics Born, Curumin and Bing Ji Ling for guest vocals. Guerrero's resume reads like a dream: he was a member of the Bones Brigade skate team in the 80's, made movie appearances, co-founded Real Skateboards and 40's Clothing, directed art for Krooked Skateboarding and is a prolific recording artist - from the "Fat Jazzy Grooves" and "Another Late Night" compilations, to albums for Mo'Wax, Galaxia, Function 8, Quannum, Rush [Japan] and now his own venture Too Good.
