CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Since the release of  Natural Born Days on June 18 the release has been showered with amazing reviews!

Malone’s songs alternately offer masterful psychological insight, a bulwark against troubles and a lighthearted sense of wonder, all sculpted by his remarkable voice and steadied by an intricate array of guitar textures, rhythmic foundations, fills and solos.
Nashville Scene

Tommy Malone has released his first official solo album in 12 years, packed with appealing music in a vein reminiscent of his old group. These songs of love—good and gone wrong—thrive on Malone’s soulful, expressive vocals and impressive slide guitar.

Natural Born Days sounds like the Tommy Malone that his fans love and
his soon-to-be fans will be happy to get to know.
