Tom Meny & David Jara


Tom Meny - As the title of his debut album suggests, Austin, Texas-based singer-songwriter Tom Meny is definitely on his way. Meny was named the Southwest regional finalist for NPR’s 2012 Mountain Stage NewSong contest, making it to the Top 5 overall at Lincoln Center in New York. In October of 2013, Meny won the Stonevalley Texas Songwriters competition and in December of 2013, Meny won the Recording Conservatory of Austin's (TRCOA) Singer Songwriter competition. To date, Tom Meny has 2 million YouTube video views.

Co-produced by Meny and Tim Casterline, On My Way’s ten songs are a vibrant mix of pop, rock and acoustic numbers that focus on everything from relationships to living life with no regrets. Though Meny takes his cues from the likes of John Mayer and Glen Hansard in terms of his songwriting and sound, it’s not hard to miss hints of Johnny Rzeznik’s vocals and the Barenaked Ladies on the upbeat “Make Some Noise,” or the liveliness of bands like Blues Traveler or Sister Hazel on “I’m All In.” “Job” is at once tragic and hilarious as Meny sedately sings “I hate my effen job,” and on the album’s biggest highlight, the stirring ballad “No Anger,” Meny repeats the soulful refrain of “No anger/No envy/No fear/No regrets” to great effect. This last track is one of many on the album which resonate with Meny on a deep level.

On My Way’s content is so interwoven into the fabric of Meny’s life that this refrain from “No Anger” even appears in the album’s penultimate song, “Road.” This lyrical choice helps bring a greater level of symmetry and depth to the album, highlighting Meny’s desire to live life in a way that is charismatic and filled with passion for what he does. By having no anger, no envy, no fear and no regrets, Meny hopes to ensure that his fans will seek out a similar direction for their own lives.
