Here is a note from Tom Wilson:
The greatest role of an artist is to inspire and influence the human condition with the intent of making this a better world for all of us to live in..
Yesterday I had a most amazing experience of performing for a new friend who I immediately fell in love with .
One of Canada’s greatest living writers, Miriam Toews.
Mariam’s book ALL MY PUNY SORROWS has been an incredible influence on me and as a result of her beautiful story I managed to fumble my way to finally completing the song BEAUTIFUL SCARS….
Here is our 1st meeting on CBC Radio’s q .
Thanks to our dear loving friend Dave Bidini for bringing us all together and coming up with magical ideas like TORN FROM THE PAGES…

Lee Harvey Osmond, the guise of Canadian singer-songwriter Tom Wilson, inhabits the night’s darker corners.
Wednesday, May 13th, 2015
Lee Harvey Osmond, the guise of Canadian singer-songwriter Tom Wilson, inhabits the night’s darker corners. Singing from the depths of interminable sorrow with a cavernous, gravelly baritone capable of overwhelmingly subtle emotion, Wilson crafts a sense of neo-Waitsian noir with his third release, Beautiful Scars. Brushed snares, organ stabs, tremolo-heavy guitars, jazz-tinged horns, and a sense of permanent midnight dominate these ten songs of love and loss.
By employing a range of styles steeped in calculated cool, Wilson’s approach to heartache is one wrapped in an ever-present mist that clings tightly to the base of flickering streetlights. To listen to Beautiful Scars is to get lost in black and white, shadows chasing the night as it wrestles with the light. Cigarette smoke lingers beside abandoned whiskey glasses illuminated by failing neon, the moon a cloud-enveloped sliver clinging to the night sky.

"I have never met a storyteller with the warmth, humour and heart of Tom Wilson," says Martha Kanya-Forstner, Editor-in-Chief of Doubleday Canada. "He reveals his story with such generosity and kindness that I've already come to love and embrace the characters it. In working with Tom, I feel like the lucky girl who won the lottery, and I can't wait to share his stories with the reading public."
The book, written with the assistance of author/musician, will hit bookstores in Fall 2017.
In the memoir, Wilson will offer a profoundly moving and humorous look at family and identity after a chance encounter with a stranger caused him to question everything he had always known about his past.
