Coming Home

Three years after his critically acclaimed debut Walkin’ On Air, the ultra-talented Finnish songwriter, producer and arranger Tomi Malm of Fly Away – The Songs Of David Foster fame returns with his sophomore effort, titled Coming Home.

With this album, Tomi reaffirms himself as one of the most incredible talents of his generation. Coming Home presents another flawless collection of pop, soul and fusion numbers, delivered with the help of some of the world’s most gifted musicians.

The quality music includes songs mostly written or co-written by Tomi who definitely pleases the refined music lovers that have worn out legendary records like Boz Scaggs’ Middle Man, the late Al Jarreau’s Jarreau or Steely Dan’s Gaucho.

The Northern European wizard is in top form on this new release that showcases his creative genius through inventive arrangements and top-notch production that would make David Foster and Jay Graydon proud.

Tomi Malm’s long anticipated album presents vocal performances by Bill Cantos, Marilyn Scott, Randy Goodrum, Jerry Lopez, Ole Børud, Andreas Aleman, Frank Ådahl, Ashton Moran, Michael Haddad, ZoSia, Maeva Borzakian, Wendy Moten and the late, great Warren Wiebe.

Session players contributing to the project include Steve Lukather, Vinnie Colaiuta, Tim Pierce, Alex Acuña, Tollak Ollestad, Simon Phillips, Jimmy Haslip, Joel Taylor, Alex Al, Luis Conte, John “JR” Robinson, Neil Stubenhaus, Robbie Buchanan, Eric Marienthal and Brandon Fields, among others.

‘Coming Home’ is scheduled to release on October 15th, 2020, on compact disc, vinyl LP and digital download. Pre-orders are now open via contanteysonante.com!
