The singer and songwriter of rock music known as Tom Oprendek has released his latest LP album, “Storm Comin'.” The record is composed of 11 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 40 minutes. Categorized variously as pop, folk-pop, folk-rock and indie-pop music, the record features songs penned and composed in the classic American style and masterful rock performances.

Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Oprendek mentions that his inspirations come from “folk and folk-rock/pop songwriters” in general.

“My father worked at the Capitol Records record pressing plant in Scranton, PA in the '60s and '70s and he would bring home copies of the records Capitol was pressing at the time,” he writes. “I was exposed to an eclectic mix of folk, country, rock, pop, world and swing/jazz music from a very early age.”

Oprendek mentions Nat "King" Cole, Sam Cooke, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, the Kingston Trio, the Beatles, the Band, Trini Lopez, Joe South, Count Basie, and Hank Williams.

“Touring the record plant sparked my interest in the whole process of composing and recording music.”

Records aside, however, Oprendek became particularly enthusiastic about the film biography of Hank Williams, “Your Cheating Heart.”

“I was so impressed by Hank William's ability to write songs that I wanted to become a songwriter,” he says.

The themes of “Storm Comin'” are romantic in nature, but not syrupy. This fits well with the album's tone, which is folk at heart with a classic-rock sound.

“The album title,” writes Oprendek, “is also the name of one of the songs on the album. 'Storm Comin'' is a metaphor for change or, more precisely, the anxious moments of uncertainty in anticipation of a change and prior to fully embracing the change. This feeling of uncertainty and anxiety prior to embracing the change can occur in many situations whether it's a change within a relationship, taking a moral or political stand or advocating for social justice issues.”

In addition to the skills of Tom Oprendek, himself, “Storm Comin'” features the talents of Jerry Cortez, Steve Riley, and Kincaid Miller.

“Storm Comin'” by Tom Oprendek is available online worldwide beginning 25 May 2014.
