Music is a language of love, healing, togetherness, and expansiveness. Good music is never dated but lives on for all of us to enjoy. The wisdom and experience of those who have journeyed before us is very important. It’s time for the music to play with Tommy James on It’s Rainmaking Time!®
Tommy James is a legendary musician, singer, and producer who has sold over 100 million records. Dick Clark once said that “his music is part of the soundtrack of our lives”. Dolly Parton loves him and is swept away by Crimson & Clover. Courteney Cox may have danced with Springsteen but “can’t forget Tommy James”.
Very few musicians have ever achieved this kind of success in music history. Success is measured in different ways by different people; few people consider the real price of success. What is gained and lost? What happens to people when they “arrive”?
As we pierce the veil of Tommy James’ successful music career, we find revelations of the heart and spirit. With hits like Crystal Blue Persuasion, Mony Mony, Crimson & Clover, and many more, Tommy James was not only destined to become a successful singer and songwriter, but to journey into addiction, politics, religion, commercial bondage, and eventually to fall in love with liberation, life, and God.
If $40 million of your earnings were stolen, you had to walk on eggshells around a domineering crime boss who owned you and your record label, and you had to wait until they died to share your story, what do you do? You write your book. Join us as Tommy James shares his story: Me, The Mob and The Music.
