Tommy Flake - Second Skin

Tommy Flake (aka Randy Seals) started back in the late 90’s as an outlet for Randy’s songs. Seals toured with bands of significant notariety and quality including Elvis Brothers, Beatifics, and Peach Fuzz, just to name a few.
Tommy Flake emerged as his songwriting nomenclature and his first album, Bliss, featured him playing guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocals as well as engineering and production. Mixed by the pop genius of Adam Schmitt and with the help of several guests musicians, the effort received much praise and got Tommy into SXSW in 1999.

Since then, Randy has released two additional CDs, seen the birth of a son, and earned a Masters degree in social work, all while writing and performing his own brand of power pop.

Now Tommy Flake is back with his first release since 2007 entitled Second Skin, and with it he gives us 13 reasons why it was worth the wait. Give a listen to three of those reasons by visiting his site at and purchase it as an mp3 download at CD Baby or iTunes.

Oh yeah, enjoy this exclusive, never seen before video of the Beatifics classic, Almost Something There, featuring Randy Seals, Chris Dern, Andy Schultz, and Paul Novak.
