NEWS: LA based Producer & Songwriter TOMI, releases new single “Open Road” dedicated to National Coming Out Day

Known for her ferocious guitar and resounding vocals, Songwriter and producer TOMI has released her new track “Open Road” in light of the LGBTQ+ community on National Coming Out Day via her own record label In Between Records. Boasting a powerful sound of strong piano chords and a steady drum beat, TOMI’s vocals express a powerful meaning. She writes, “I came out at the age of twelve when I fell in love with my best friend. My mom found love notes and all hell broke loose. Coming out in a conservative suburban neighbourhood was an uphill battle.” 

As TOMI plans to split profits for the LGBTQ+ youth community, she expresses her experience of growing up and learning about being open and honest. TOMI writes,  “After I came out I found solace in music and leaned on it for honesty and security. Through the years of fighting to protect  the LGBTQ+ community I learned a lot about resilience. Open Road is about that process – resilience, fighting for change and discovering strength in one’s differences.” 

Open Road is out now on all streaming platforms.
