Thomas Righter Snow (born 1947 in Princeton, New Jersey) is an American songwriter.
Tom Snow was a member of the band Country, which released a sole album on Clean Records, a subsidiary of Atlantic Records in 1971. Snow sang co-lead and played piano. The band included Michael Fondiler, who shared lead vocals and played rhythm guitar, Bob DeSimone on drums, Steve Fondiler on bass and Ian Espinoza on lead guitar and dobro. Their little-known but assured self-titled debut featured Mark and Matt Andes of Spirit and Jo Jo Gunne and Lowell George of Little Feat. Vexed by management troubles – Michael O’Bryant was replaced by Peter Asher – the album sank without a trace. Re-released on the Slipstream label in 2013, the album garnered favourable reviews.
Snow left after the first album, but the rest of the band continued, and a second album was recorded but never released. A single from those sessions, “Strange Arrangement”, was released, which featured Snow and the rest of the band but was credited as a solo work by Ian Espinoza. It also failed and Clean Records pulled the plug. The band now has the original masters and plans are afoot to finally release this album, which was to be entitled Bigalo Jive. UK fanzine Fantastic Expedition told the Country story in its Issue #8
