Chris Pahud: Folk Singer and Songwriter

I started playing out in the local Boston area around 2 decades ago. I'm a bass and baritone singer of the Fred Neil and Rogers brothers school (not quite their calibre, but in the same pew, off to the side), a Travis Picker and strummer whose Influences were essentially everybody in the movie 'The Last Waltz', Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Rush, Fred Neil, Tom Russell, David Olney, Ian and Sylvia, Stan and Garnet Rogers. Lately I have been enjoying co-writing with Quincy based poet, Bill Thibodeau who is one of the founding members of 'The Carpenter Poets' based out of Jamaica Plain Massachusetts. I try to get out a least once a week and play. Keeps me out of trouble and gives my dog a break.

Then in 1999, TOKYO TRAMPS was born in Boston.   Satoru took its name TRAMPS from his early idol, Bruce Springsteen's song, Born To Run - "Tramps like us, baby, we were born to run."..... Satoru says, “American music changed our lives. We’re creating something very unique and exciting. We’re making our dreams come true every time we play.”"
