Press Release :
Bay Area legend and recent Quannum signee Tommy Guerrero delivers a grounded and stylish record aptly titled From The Soil To The Soul, available today, Oct 10.

The 14 tracks that comprise From The Soil To The Soul pulse with Tommy's distinctive organic, atmospheric sound, yet this time with a heavier resonance. Beasties-infused stripped down funk is layered with Americana, heavy psych, lo-fi fuzz and Latin rhythms, all with a breezy, laid-back San Francisco vibe.

Recorded primarily in his home studio Guerrero wrote, arranged and played nearly all the instruments on the album, including bass, guitar, keyboards, percussion and kalimba. Renowned street artist Barry McGee, aka Twist, designed the cover art and Tommy called on label mates/ friends Lyrics Born, Curumin and Bing Ji Ling for guest vocals.

At 40, Guerrero's résumé reads like a dream: he was a member of the Bones Brigade skate team in the 80's, made movie appearances, co-founded Real Skateboards and 40's Clothing, directed art for Krooked Skateboarding and is a prolific recording artist - from the “Fat Jazzy Grooves” and “Another Late Night” compilations, to albums for Mo'Wax, Galaxia, Function 8 and now Quannum.
