Hello, I'm Thomas Comerford, songwriter, singer, guitarist, filmmaker in Chicago, IL.

Quarantine single "Steel Trap" is out on all streaming platforms now!!!! Recorded remotely with the live band in 2020-21 and finished up in December. Featuring Bethany Thomas.

Introverts, my fourth solo LP, is out NOW! You can order the vinyl LP through bandcamp. It is in stock at these Chicago-area record stores. You also can stream it on just about every streaming service. Scroll down for 2022 shows, we will continue to add them as they are announced.

Press for Introverts:

4/5 Stars, "“Introverts is the stunning 4th album from the Chicago-based Thomas Comerford … Musically akin to pre-Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Wilco … Introverts is without a doubt a ‘go back to’ LP.” -- Louis Wigget, Shindig! Magazine

"Comerford straddles the singer-songwriter era of the 1970s and the dusty, deadpan observations of psychedelic iconoclasts such as Bill Callahan ... These beguiling country songs leave their doors open for you to poke around and find hidden interpretations that are inevitably right." -- Mark Guarino, Chicago Reader

"The vividness of Comerford’s words establish him as an uncommonly astute exponent of the singer-songwriter tradition. Adding to this is distinctive inflection that at times recalls Bill Callahan and David Berman." -- Joseph Neff, Vinyl District

"... eight very well thought out tunes that are likely to remind you of Willie Nelson, Lou Reed, Joe Strummer, or Tom Waits." --Tom Haugen, Daily Vault

"I want to say this feels like the ’60s invading the ’80s indie scene by way of ’70s singer-songwriters, but that duet with Azita Youssefi on “Partners” is such a perfectly timeless update of the Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazelwood dynamic, I’m just at a loss for words." -- Nick Spacek, Cinepunx

Big Takeover premiered the video for "Three Sisters" on 4/5/21. Animation by Dave Merson Hess.

Chicago Reader profile, 5//26/20.

In April 2020, the live band and I decided, during the "stay-at-home" order, to record a new song together, each adding their part from home. This single released on 5/29/20. Each player also recorded vid of themselves, so I edited those to show us performing the song together. Hope you dig! This premiered on Esthetic Lens on 5/21!
