About Tom Paxton
Hailing from the windy city of Chicago, Illinois, Tom would grow up all across midwest America, taking in the sights and sounds of American culture that would eventually form and shape his future folk music career. After time spent at the University of Oklahoma and in the Army, Tom would pick up a writing deal with Cherry Lane Music Publishing, starting his first foray into the music industry. He would begin to perform in and around New York City's Greenwich Village, picking up a following as he started his slow ramp up to fame on the American folk scene. Tom would perform alongside many other folk greats, including Eric Andersen, Bob Dylan, and Pete Seeger, eventually making his way onto the billing at the Newport Folk Festival, which was then a litmus test for folk music that could make or break an upcoming musicians career. He would pass with flying colors, picking up a recording deal with Elektra Records that would last for nearly seven full length albums.
Tom would go to great lengths to involve himself in the inchoate civil rights movements of the 60s, writing songs and attending rallies and festivals supporting civil rights for all. At the same time, his profile would continue to rise as he became a prodigious songwriter, with his songwriting being recognized in folk circles as comparable or better than Bob Dylan, widely considered one of America's finest and most well known singer/songwriters.
Enjoying widespread professional and personal success, Tom would begin to travel the world with his wife and children, spending time in various places including England, New zealand, and China. He would spend the 70s continuing to pen a wide array of folk successes, eventually forming his very own recording company, Pax Records, in the late 80s. With complete financial freedom, Paxton would go wherever his musical mind would take him, delving into children's music in the 1990s before going full circle and returning to his folk roots for much of the 2000s and into today. Paxton remains a force on the music scene today, with a steady stream of releases and a busy tour schedule that help him retain his position as one of the most prominent folk musicians of a generation.
Tom's major label debut would be 1964's Ramblin' Boy, the breakaway success hit and his first record with Elektra Records. Produced by fellow folk enthusiast Paul Rothchild, the album would receive positive reviews from critics as well as commercial success. The album would feature Barry Kornfeld and Felix Pappalardi as studio musicians, with the album spawning class Paxton tracks such as "The Last Thing on My Mind", "Ramblin' Boy", "I Can't Help But Wonder Where I'm Bound", and "The Last Thing On My Mind".
In addition to his debut, Paxton has penned a variety of unforgettable folk hits, including "Bottle of Wine", "The Marvelous Toy", "I Miss My Friends Tonight", "Lyndon Johnson Told The Nation", "Buy A Gun For Your Son" and "Whose Garden Was This".
Tom's contributions to music have earned him countless awards and accolades, including Lifetime Achievement Awards from the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers and from the Grammy Awards. Besides his Lifetime Achievement win, Tom has been back and forth to the Grammys numerous times over the last two decades.
