Named "Best Folk Act 2017" by Seattle Weekly, Tomo Nakayama has consistently created music that is complex, nuanced, and emotionally compelling. His work in a decade both as a solo artist and as frontman in his chamber-pop band Grand Hallway has been praised by NPR, New York Times, and KEXP. Known for his crystalline high-tenor voice, intricate fingerpicking, cinematic production style, and simple, poetic lyrics imbued with warmth and humanity, Tomo’s songs have drawn comparisons to Paul Simon, Elliott Smith, and Jeff Buckley. He has also composed music for film and television, and starred as an actor alongside Ellen Page in Lynn Shelton’s Sundance Grand Jury nominated movie “Touchy Feely”. His newest solo album "Pieces of Sky" finds Nakayama venturing further into the digital chamber folk sound of his debut album while incorporating ambient synths, dream pop atmospherics and analog drum machines into the mix. They reflect his experiences of touring solo across the US, Japan, and Europe, and a year spent busking and people watching at Seattle Tacoma International Airport.
"Listening to Pieces of Sky feels like the right words you need to hear from an old friend. With Nakayama’s presence so felt in this city, he fills that role aptly of someone you can always count on when things look bad. It’s an album that calms the soul. It makes me thankful for Nakayama and the excellent work he’s consistently put out over the last decade." - KEXP
"The songs on Pieces of Sky have a quiet, intimate intensity. The music is subtle and full of delicate nuances, but they explore a wide dynamic and emotional range." - Magnet
"I set into this record with high expectations and preconceived notions of the sonic landscape I would find. However, I find myself caught beautifully off-guard by the sheer sincerity, grace, and risk of this body of work." - ArtistHome
