"Tom McBride is a traveling man. Originally from Boston, the singer-songwriter spent also some time in Nashville before laying down roots around these here parts. (DC) From the sound of his songs, it seems his time in Tennessee served him well — influencing the band’s blend of folk, pop, rock, americana and soul. After self releasing an EP called Headed For in 2007, he invited some DC-area players to round out his band. The result is The Whig Party, a tightly knit group of musicians with clear chemistry.
