Multi-Instrumentalist Releases 6th Project

Tom Eure, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, grew up in Roanoke Rapids, NC, attended Appalachian State University and resides near Charlotte, NC. His 6th solo project, The Coin, The Prayer & The Crow, features Eure on vocals, fiddle, banjo and mandolin.

North Carolina is a state replete with musical history, and Tom finds inspiration in his home state. As a studio musician, Eure has appeared on more than 45 albums of various genres, a transition he navigates with ease. He’s the fiddler for 2015 CMA award winners Flatland Tourist, spent seven years with the Cajun band Carolina Gator Gumbo, and has been part of the Celtic duo, Thistledown Tinkers, with Trip Rogers.

“As a multi-instrumentalist, I have been lucky enough to work with bands from all types of genres,” Eure says. “I’ve worked with acts in Celtic, Cajon, Americana, Rock and more, and every one of those experiences influence my playing.”

“I feel like my music career has not been unlike a world traveler,” Eure notes. “I’ve been visiting all these wonderful places and am able to bring my favorite parts back with me. Picking up on something and passing it along, sharing it, that’s what folk music is all about. The new album is a celebration of life, love, and music that is the next logical step in what I call my ‘folk process’.”

With The Coin, The Prayer & The Crow, Tom Eure is joined by new musical partner, Amelia Osborne. The latter is equally skilled at fiddle, banjos, drums, mandolin, guitar, and as a vocalist.

Eure has won over audiences in Nashville at venues like the iconic Blue Bird Café, and in New York City at the truly legendary CBGB’s Gallery. Eure shares his eclectic brand of acoustic music in theaters, at festivals and Highland Games throughout the United States. He has opened for some of the finest, James McMurtry, Chris Smither, and the late Warren Zevon.
