What They're Saying About
“[California Dream’s] assurance, craft and conviction belie the fact that [Tom]’s a novice or a newcomer of any kind. … Great stuff indeed.”
- American Songwriter
“There’s a wealth of good musical touches [with] style & a commercial charm that’s not too sweet. … [T]he superb rollicking ‘Gimme the Breeze’ [is] worth the price of the CD. … Energetic & rocking. … Sweet & dynamic. … Excellent lyrical imagery.”
- Americana Highways
"Tom Sless surveys a soulful ride down the winding roads of life and love, from Jersey Shore and Baltimore roots, to Los Angeles with celebratory country rock, nod-and-a-wink humor, and rough-hewn folksiness.”
- Los Angeles Post-Examiner
“Here is a songwriter not to be deterred. … Sless has an insidious way (a good way, that is) of getting our feet tapping while he delivers lyrics of substance. … ‘California Dream’ overall reveals some great playing and songwriting”
- Short and Sweet LA/NYC

With ceaseless creativity, an ear for the just-right melody and lyric, and with a passion for song, the singer, songwriter, and guitar slinger writes songs and produces music that evoke his disappointments, hopes, joys, and loves. With a vibe that alternates between the celebratory country rock of Luke Combs, the nod-and-a-wink humor of Sturgill Simpson, and the rough-hewn folksiness of Donovan Woods, Sless carries us along with him on a soulful ride down the winding roads of life and love on his first album, California Dream.
