If you love the Beatles' "Rubber Soul" or "Revolver" albums, you will enjoy this solo debut by John Macom. Ranked #1 Debut Album of the Year & #8 Album of the Year by Absolute Powerpop!
If the name John Macom sounds familiar it may be because you’ve heard his songs on iconic American TV shows Dawson’s Creek, Party of Five, Felicity, American Embassy and E! True Hollywood Story to name a few. He is the creator of Tennis Tunes heard on all sports networks globally. He has saved rock ‘n’ roll on countless occasions with his band Binge, which was dubbed “America’s Garage Band” by Pat O’Brien, formerly of Entertainment Tonight. Here, again, Macom saves the world from over-homogenized music with his first solo effort Unforeseen Circumstances, an acoustic-based album of timeless songs that could easily be considered an album of the year candidate.
