Today our Bottle Rock Napa Featured Artist is Thom Chacon. For today I wanted to feature an artist who truly makes an impression with his words and melodies in his song. Thom Chacon is an Americana delight as his music brings to light his influences of Kris Kristofferson, Steve Earle and Townes Van Zandt, among others. His love of nature in his personal life trickles into his song as you find yourself often painting a scenic picture in your head as you listen to him.  His narrative style evokes so much passion in his songs and his vocals are soul touching. One of the songs that highlights this style is in Chasing the Pain, amazing song that tells such a reflective story of pain.  

 

Thom‘s songwriting is spectacular and reminds me of true Johnny Cash style. Thom has gone on to tour around the world, opening for artists as diverse as Los Lonely Boys and Jason Mraz, playing shows in Thailand and India, and even one memorable gig on July 4, 2004 at Folsom Prison, shortly after the death of another of his idols, Johnny Cash. “That was a life-changing experience for me,” he says.  One of my favorite songs is American Dream that tells the truthful side of living the American Dream. One of the best lines in the song is:

“I’m living the American dream

Fo’ sho’

I’m worth more dead Because baby, I owe.”

Doesn’t that capture the true meaning of the American Dream today.  Thom also recently wrote an amazing song “Before the Drilling Rigs Got Here” which he wrote for the families who have been adversely affected by hydraulic fracturing. We look forward to Thom‘s appearance at this year’s Bottle Rock Napa Festival.
