Tom DiMenna

I play guitar and sing in the Portland area. Maine. I released my debut album this year, "You Know Me, My Devil Says." I wrote most of the songs while working as the bartender at the local music venue, One Longfellow Square. I've also been doing a Cat Stevens tribute act at local breweries, and have begun working on a sea shanty show featuring the arrangements of the late folk-singer, Paul Clayton. A son of New Bedford, Massachussetts and an inheritor of the whaling and sailing songs that make up its past, Clayton was a special performer whose works deserve a second look.

Before focusing on music and moving to Maine, I was an actor/comedian in New York City, and starred in an off-broadway lounge act that parodied the life of Kojak-star, Telly Savalas. The show was an Encore Winner at the NYC Fringe Festival and ran for several years. Before that I was, briefly, a pro-quartback in the Federation of Italian-American Football. I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania where I played for the football team before turning to the arts.
