First released in 1985 Tom Brights “Hands Of Time” garnered airplay on the CMJ national college radio charts as well as FM radio stations around the country. The record received rave reviews as well as interest from major record labels including EMI, A&M Records & many more. Original recording at Blackberry Way in 1984-1985 and backed by the Idle Strand, the 1980's synth driven pop rock with attitude sounds just as fresh today as when it was first issued over 30 years ago. Recently Blackberry Way Records placed several songs by Tom Bright with Play Network & Mood Media two of the biggest providers of music for the retail environments internationally.
