Tom grew up in rural Pennsylvania in a family where music was part of the fabric of everyday life. As a young man living at the epicenter of the folk-quake that was Cambridge, MA in the 1960’s, Tom solidified what has become a life-long love of self-made music. Deeply rooted in the old-school folk tradition, his timeless stories are told with a voice that is honest and sincere with melodies that you will remember forever.
SongC.R.A.F.T. is so pleased to share the song Tom wrote using the method in our book. “In The Space Between Your Words” is a poignant reflection of the relationship of a son and his father; one longing to hear caring words, the other unable to speak them.
Thank you, Tom Smith, for sharing this beautiful song with our readers and songwriters.

Thank you for sharing, Nancy and Laura. SongC.R.A.F.T. is a wonderful resource for songwriters. There are many practical suggestions, great discussions and exercises, but where this book really shines for me is in providing a pathway to reach deep and difficult-to-deal-with emotions. To be honest, that pathway is sometimes unpleasant. However, embracing the journey can also turn a good song into a great one.
