Thomas Cohen is the former frontman of the band S.C.U.M. After the band broke up when he was 21, he focused all of his energy into raising his two sons, and his marriage. Sadly, Cohen’s wife passed away in 2014 leaving him to raise his kids on his own, and these experiences have translated into an emotionally impactful debut record. These songs detail the heartbreak of a man who has experienced so much in such a short time on this Earth, and it’s a beautiful album. I highly recommend giving it a listen.
