With a perfect four-chair turn in their audition, in front of millions of people all over the world and winning NBC’s The Voice — Season 21, Girl Named Tom stole the hearts of America with their harmonious harmonies and put on a show-stopping performance at the world famous Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA.
Opening the show was soulful country artist, Claire Wright, who grew up on a cattle ranch in northern California.
With her silky, smooth tone of voice and her reggae-infused acoustic vibes, she will for sure have you riding shotgun with the top down and cruising along a beach coast on the highway, singing along to her music in no time. With her charming smile that brightened up the room, Claire graced us with her unique vocals and acoustic guitar, while the crowd had their drinks up in the air, enjoying the raw pleasurable music. She performed all original music that night and the crowd couldn’t have been more ecstatic. Songs such as “I Could Use a Beach”, “Having It All” and “Vice” were just a few that were sung from her debut album, Miss California, released back in 2021. Currently residing in Nashville, Claire is ready to take the music industry by storm and continues to showcase her amazing talents in front of newfound fans around the world. So, stay tuned and keep an eye out to see what’s next over the horizon from Claire Wright!
As the lights started to fade for the second time, the crowd couldn’t help but start to push their way to the front to get ready for the main act, Girl Named Tom. As the band started to make their way down, new and old fans since the beginning began to erupt in cheers; this electric California audience couldn’t wait any longer to see the group perform live in front of their eyes! These American folk siblings consist of Caleb, Joshua and Bekah Liechty, who were all born in the little town of Pettisville, Ohio — a town boasting a population close to only 600 people. With their beautiful a cappella vocals and their country charm, Girl Named Tom is ready to hit the big cities and play shows all over the world to prove just how great they are.
The night was filled with endless acoustic fingerpicking and pleasantly mesmerizing singing that had you wanting more.
Most of the lively night was jam-packed with tasteful classic throwback hit songs, such as “Helplessly Hoping” by Crosby, Stills & Nash, “Dust in the Wind” by Kansas and “Free Fallin’” by Tom Petty, plus many others that echoed throughout the iconic venue and kept the crowd singing and clapping throughout the night.
Their voices are unmatched, emotional and booming when in a room together. Whether they’re in front of just 200 fans in a small venue or have millions of people watching on television, this band knows just how to make you stop and stare with excitement when onstage together.
As the evening was coming to a close, Girl Named Tom decided to treat their fans and sing a brand new song that was written only just a few days before! Not too long after that, they announced they only had one more song left to perform. The energy in the room was still alive and the excitement was still in the air, as if they just started the show. The closing song was a cover of a timeless chart-topper tune titled “Jolene” by Dolly Parton. It definitely was a night to remember and a night fans will never forget. As the band started to pack up and exit the stage, the crowd started to cheer them on to sing another song. As the audience burst into “encore” chants, the band noticed, popped back out and hopped up on the stage again to give the crowd what they wanted.
As Girl Named Tom stepped in front of their fans and grabbed their mics, they announced that they would sing one more song called “23”: the bonus track off of their first album, Hits From The Road, dedicating it to their father who had recently passed away.
