Lots of songwriters have tried to give voice to the hard economic times experienced by so many people these days. Maybe the most famous is Springsteen’s. And, frankly, Springsteen’s is one of the worst.  Tokyo Rosenthal has been around the block a few more times than The Boss, and is much more in touch with every day life than Bruce will ever be. Toke’s given voice to the frustrations felt by so many people in a much more authentic and realistic way than anyone else that’s tried it.

“What Did I Used To Be” is available on iTunes

Hear more music and hear Tokyo Rosenthal talk about the stories behind his songs on episode 50 of the Taproot Music Show.
