Fragile, the latest CD, was released on May 17, 2019 at a special concert. Tom and Barb performed original inspiring songs backed by talented musician friends, Lon Couillard, Andy Waldoch, Ray Kinney, David Noll, Peg Kasun, Hannah Kasun, and Gregg Jancoski. Tom's collection of original art accompanied the music, projected on large screens. The art depicted portraits, landscapes, and animals in the media of water color, pen and ink, digital, charcoal, and pastels. John Webber was the sound engineer for the event. During the song, Something's Not Working Here, the OLOL choir stood in the audience to lend their voices in representation of all those in poverty who could not be there, a representative flash mob.
The concert was constructed around the concept of a labyrinth which winds in toward the center or heart. Unlike a maze, there are no misleading or dead-ends. There is one way in and one way out. The album is a collection of songs that leads one into reflection and healing, acknowledging the vulnerable places in life, and then the joy and serenity that we find on the other side of turbulence.
