Biography[edit]

FatCat Records artist Tom Brosseau tours and performs in the US, UK, Europe, Japan and Taiwan. In the Los Angeles area, his home club is Largo. His song "How to Grow a Woman from the Ground" was covered by Chris Thile, who released a 2006 album of the same name. One Take New York, in association with Le Blogotheque, filmed two Take-Away Show acoustic video sessions in New York. In 2010, the band Mice Parade covered his song "Mary Anne" on their album What It Means To Be Left-handed.[1] Collaborations include American Folksingers, a folk duo with Gregory Page, and Les Shelleys, a folk duo with Angela Correa, with whom Brosseau released an album on Fat Cat Records in 2010. Beginning in 2012, Brosseau performed with John C. Reilly, Becky Stark and a cast of LA-area musicians in John Reilly & Friends.

Brosseau starred in a film about a man who tries to escape his ex-girlfriend by moving to the desert. Wonder Valley, directed by Andrew van Baal and written by Patrick Strange (publisher of Constance, ex-editor of Filter Magazine), was completed in 2012 and premiered at the Maryland Film Festival in May of that year.
