Tom McGuire & the Brassholes originally came together busking on the streets of Glasgow in 2014 during the commonwealth games, with members meeting for the first time mid song. From that point onwards the group cemented its name in the Glasgow scene and continued working together, making a living from playing music in various facets. All the while however, we have wished to fulfil our potential as a band producing quality original music. The unfulfilled potential is indeed great; the band consists of some of the best players in their respective disciplines, from a range of backgrounds, all hardworking musicians. However, caught up in simply making a living out of music, we have forgotten to live through our own music. Only now, after over 3 years of working together, we have finally made the conscious decision to concentrate our efforts on our own work. The results so far are not disappointing. The band is eager to show what we can do for ourselves, given what we have learned. the songs exhibit a deep love of classic funk and soul, with a modern sensibility with regards to arrangements, drawing from the considerable talents and musical character of each player on board. We have made something great, and would be thrilled for the opportunity to be able to exhibit what we have made in the best possible way.
The aim of this project is be able to record an album of the excellent original music which we have written. Music we have poured all of our efforts and skill over the past months. In order to do justice to the effort we have put in, we plan to record in a professional studio setting . We then hope to put out this record on C.D and vinyl, a final and concrete embodiment of our work that we can all be proud of. Please be as generous as you can and help us raise the funds needed in making all of this possible! Many thanks , TM&B's.
