Jonathan Richman
Jonathan Richman has been writing music, recording and touring for most of his life, gathering the loyalty of fans and fellow artists with his warmth, humor and insightful lyrics. In the early 1970s he formed the Modern Lovers, a major progenitor of punk music. Tommy Larkins was in the groups Naked Prey, Giant Sand and other popular bands in Tucson, Arizona. Jonathan and Tommy continue to record, write music together and tour across the US. Tommy's drumming along with Jonathan's guitar and singing create a live experience that is hard to forget.

"I've seen Jonathan and Tommy play live many times over the years and their shows genuinely make the world seem like a better place; a feeling that lingers long after the duration of the show. It's always a thrill to watch them perform." -long time fan

"Playing shows and making records keeps getting easier and more fun," Jonathan states, adding, "…me and Tommy play totally different than we played two years ago. We already play a different style than we played on that live DVD, and the way we played then was totally different from the way we played three years before that. I still feel like we're just starting out, and I still learn new stuff every night." -Jonathan
