I'm bound by neither the past nor the present, but always looking to the future. I live my life with a constant soundtrack encapsulated in song and rhyme.
It's been said of me that "Thomas Michael Link, is an artist that's dedicating to perfecting and honing his craft and is determined and obsessed with music and writing but doesn't define himself in any one genre of music, a fact that is evident in his songs and composition."
I think that sums it up pretty well.
I am a songwriter and singer. Not in the acoustic, strummy kind of way, but in a way that always challenges me to make something new. I write the songs and sing them. I create a dynamic and eclectic musical experience that draws inspiration from a wide spectrum of genres.
My style is a fusion of rock's raw energy, the catchiness of pop, the rebellious spirit of punk-pop, the soulful undertones of blues, the improvisational flair of jazz, and the vibrant rhythms of big band and swing. Through my music, I aim to take you on a journey that seamlessly blends these influences, resulting in a sound that's both familiar and refreshingly unique.
From emotive ballads to high-energy anthems, my music reflects the tapestry of my diverse musical passions, creating a sonic landscape that's meant to resonate with your emotions and get you moving
