Sand and Water

After the huge success of “The Contender”, it was time for work to start on a new album. Tommy changed direction again pooling from writers such as Tom Waits, Dan Fogelberg, Jimmy Webb, Callum McCall, Paul Brady and once again John Hurley. When all the writers and songs were compiled the album “Sand and Water” was born. A song that remains Tommy’s favourite today was the title track written by Beth Neilsen Chapman. Having attended a show at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin, one reviewer wrote, that “when Tommy sings this song you can feel the pain that was felt by the writer. He has a remarkable ability of taking you into his world when he sings, be it happy or sad.”
