About Tom Verlaine

After the demise of the much-lauded band Television at the end of the 1970s, guitarist and songwriter Tom Verlaine wasted no time in launching a productive solo career, regularly releasing albums of challenging but tuneful songs marked by honest vocals and the distinctive gleam of his guitar playing. By the '90s, his music had taken a turn towards tangled and edgy instrumentals. Occasionally Verlaine reunites with Television, or tries his hand at production, but for the most part is content to play, write, and record at his own pace.
