Tom Wall is an internationally known American singer-songwriter, musician, writer, luthier, biologist and activist from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Wall is known for inventing the florganoleptic music genre, being the lead singer, guitarist, composer and producer of the progressive rock band Cosmic Knot, writing for Garden Culture Magazine and for his collaborations with P Funk All Star Muruga Booker. With over 18 years of horticulture experience and a deep love for mother nature, Tom Wall has made a name for himself in the music and gardening industry. This is largely due to his insight on things found in nature that are often overlooked by most in everyday life. Wall's insight into nature has led him towards writing for international horticulture magazines, building up 3 different horticulture companies, creating the florganoleptic music genre, throwing his own festival titled "Fest Of All", founding his band Cosmic Knot, writing an album that hit #7 in the nation on Relix and teaching classes on herbalism, music, horticulture and more. Through his travels Tom has learned many different variations of music and natural gardening methods such as living soils, bio dynamics, organics and beyond. After years of working with the plant kingdom and playing music all across the country, Tom has found himself utilizing a device that allows plants the ability to create music by measuring their electromagnetic impulses and converting that into music. It turns out that not only can plants create music, they can jam along with people beautifully. Growing up with a notion that music and nature were inextricably connected, Wall now finds himself playing music while his favorite plants play along harmonizing beautifully.... “I’ve seen Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Beck. I never got to see (Jimi) Hendrix, but you’re as close as I’m ever gonna get.” Fan Quote-Matt Marn, Local Spins “I have never been so physically and emotionally overwhelmed by a live musical presence before.” -G. Duke, Grand Rapids, MI "The music is a cosmic blessing!" -P Funk All Star Muruga Booker For More Info Visit: Cosmicknotmusic.com
