Tommy Marz talks with Erik Heemsoth about his history in music, stories behind some of the songs off of his new album, Bringing Alpha, and much, much more.

Tommy Marz has released two full-length solo albums, as well as two with his rock band, GoToZero. Together with members of GoToZero, Marz and his band are now collectively known as the Tommy Marz Band. On Dec 05, 2015, Marz and his band played their official Bringing Alpha CD release show to a sold out crowd at the Pike Room in Pontiac, Michigan.

National Rock Review’s Erik Heemsoth sat down with Marz to discuss his history in music as well as the new album. They talked about the recording and mixing behind Bringing Alpha and why there are only nine songs on it. Marz also gave some insight behind some of the songs on the album.

Listen to the interview here:

Never one for taking a break, Marz already has plenty of songs waiting in the wings, hinting at the possibility of another new album (or two or three) in the near future. Marz hopes to take his band on tour throughout the Midwest in early 2016. Who knows, maybe he will include some of these new tracks in his shows.

Our photographer, Thom Seling, was on hand for the show at the Pike Room. Here are his images from that night.
