Tommy Odetto first got the chills from music as a little boy when he came across Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, and The Beatles. As Tommy approached his teens, he discovered guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. Deeply inspired, he picked up the guitar and never looked back. A few years later Odetto was a semi-finalist for Guitar Center’s King of the Blues. He was also featured in Guitar Player magazine as an artist to watch. After two successful stints with local bands, in 2016 he decided to pursue his dream of being a frontman.
Since the move to fronting his own band, Tommy has been fortunate to be invited to perform at Bottlerock Napa 2018. Since the move to fronting his own band, Tommy has been fortunate to be invited to perform at Bottlerock Napa 2018 and the Wisconsin Harley-Davidson Milwaukee HOG Rally. Tommy has opened for bands like, Cheap Trick, Chevy Metal, Tommy Castro, Coco Montoya, Foreigner, Marshall Tucker Band, Ana Popovic, Y&T, Walter Trout, Uriah Heep, Ace Frehley, Trainwreck with Kyle Gass (Tenacious D) and Robin Trower to name a few. He is also a regular fill-in for Big Brother and the Holding Company. Now, only two years later, the Marin County native is celebrating his long-awaited sophomore release.
Curses and Revelations is an unapologetic Rock and Roll record with themes of love lost, depression, addiction, recovery, self-discovery, and redemption. Five original melodic hard rock songs that highlight his raw, honest lyrics and peel back the curtain of the heart and mind of Odetto. Curses and Revelations features many standout guitar moments that are so passionate and soulful that it’s as if we are witness to a musical truth serum. Recorded at Studio 606 and produced by John Lousteau and Ethan Turner, this new work touches on everything Odetto loves: Hard Rock, Blues, a 60's Pop mentality, with a Grunge era swagger.
