Overview: Geography might best explain the sound of Thom Donovan. Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, you can hear the Americanness in his voice. Donovan grew up on the hopeful lyrics of Motown; the railroad blues of Dylanâ€™s â€œBlood on the Tracksâ€ (his favorite Dylan record); as well as Phil Spectorâ€™s wall of sound.
Donovan also spent a few years in England. Within the texture of his music you can hear the disparate influences of Manchester and Liverpool.
In 2003 Thom Donovan began fronting his own band, Lapush (456/Universal). That band released 2 studio albums (Someplace Closer To Here - 2005 and Modern Blues - 2007) and in 2005 made their network television on Last Call with Carson Daly on NBC.
â€œI Love How You Love Meâ€ is the first single from Thom Donovan's debut solo album, CAST A LIGHT. This is a cover version of Phil Spectorâ€™s 1961 mono recording of The Paris Sisters hit song.
Songs from CAST A LIGHT have appeared in various shows on MTV including The Hill's Artist Site
