Tom Wurth Releases Special Event Single - On iTunes & His Site Now - An Original Acoustic Arrangement of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" - Celebrates 80 Years of Wizard of Oz with Fans
Nashville, Tennessee – September 10, 2019
Tom Wurth explores uncharted paths in the songs he chooses and takes that same diverse road with this own compositions. His vocal range and impeccable control provide an endless selection of songs to explore with his audience. Sometimes he finds those songs, and sometimes the songs find him. His current single release, "Somewhere Over The Rainbow," found him through a special request and the more he delved into the song, the more personal it became to him as an artist.
“My Aunt Mary asked me to come up with a version of this song for a performance at her house. This made me a little nervous. First of all, it’s a great song with a timeless melody. Second, it’s always a challenge as an artist to record music with your own style and flavor and still be respectful of the original tune. Yeah, I was a more than a little nervous. But, once I started working out an arrangement, it brought me back to being a kid again and I remembered how I felt the first time I saw the movie.”
Wurth’s acoustic arrangement was appropriately unveiled at The Wareham Opera House the night before the 80th Anniversary of the release of The Wizard of Oz in theaters. The Wareham Opera House is located in Manhattan, Kansas is just down the road from the OZ Museum in Wamego.
The single is available on iTunes (click link below) and is also available at www.TomWurth.com/Store
