G Tom Mac is famous with the public for his international hit Cry Little Sister, the gothic and triumphant prominently featured theme of Joel Schumacher's cult classic The Lost Boys, and is famous with the entertainment industry as Gerard McMann and McMahon for his highly attuned composing and songwriting talents for film and television projects, as well as for other recording artists. The Grammy winning songwriter boasts an immense music library, and he is also one of the most sampled artists of our time, most recently featured in Eminem's single "You're Never Over" off the Recovery album.
G Tom Mac's new album Untame the Songs came from the process of non-stop, focused writing this year. “My goal was to find the right thread of songs that would feel like a theatrical musical that carried a theme of escape from these very bleak times” says Mac. “I wanted it to reflect on every angle affecting us today, homes lost, jobs lost, basically things being lost in life, including our inner selves. It's not a ‘preachy album’ nor is it ‘come on and let's get fussy & happy’. It does however provoke optimism & a sense of finding a better, more interesting way out of our economic trapped & mundane times. We all need to be inspired by music that motivates us to escape, one way or another and there's no age group that doesn't feel that these days.”
G Tom Mac is masterful at distilling and conveying the purest essence of topical themes to cultivate overwhelming mood and visceral impact in his work. As such, in addition to eight critically acclaimed albums, his songs have been recorded by Kiss, Carly Simon, Robert Daltrey, and Ice Cube. G Tom Mac's credits also include movies such as The Terminator, Chasing Amy, Fast Times of Ridgemont High and Skulls; television shows such as "Gossip Girl", "Plain Jane", "The Closer", and "America's Next Top Model"; as well as commercials for Chrysler, Toyota, DKNY, and Sprite. G Tom Mac collaborates with the equally talented Tony Silver, and together the pair are unstoppable in producing dead-on masterpieces that honor the integrity of classicism in innovative, modern, and technically advanced form.
Recently G Tom Mac scored the music and wrote songs for Thomas Churchill's new film, the psychological thriller Emerging Past, which won the title of Best Horror Feature at the New York City International Film Festival. G Tom Mac's single from the film, Soul I Bare has already become a classic. G has also started a new company LeMac to create music oriented film and television projects.
“‘Groove At The End Of The World’ was chosen as the first single [off Untame The Songs], because it really tells my story of how I view the end of the world" states Mac. “As it all goes to shit, there will be those of us that have found our Shangri La among one another, our escape to Groovin', singing, dancing, & through all this WE SURVIVE! What a concept right?” Groove At The End Of The World will be showcased in its entirety on The Jimmy Star Show.
