Americana Singer/Songwriter Tokyo Rosenthal Pens Anthem For Job Loss, Outsourcing, and Desperation


Rock & Sock Records recording artist, Tokyo Rosenthal, has released a new single entitled, "What Did I Used To Be?" It's a song that captures the frustrations and shattered illusions of workers all over the globe. Outsourcing, reinvention, natural resources, and desperation are all covered by award winning singer-songwriter Rosenthal.

Tokyo is joined once again on the track by Chris Stamey on bass, Will Rigby on drums, and Allyn Love on pedal steel guitar. "Toke" plays lead and rhythm guitar as well as piano. He also handles the vocals.

"It didn't take much to inspire me to write this song", said Rosenthal. "All you have to do is turn on TV and the stories are all there. These are tough times and hopefully the tune and the video capture some of the frustration and misery that's all over the world. If it gets people to stop, think, and react, then I'll be happy. I don't expect to change things with a song, just stir things up a bit and document our present history."

Rosenthal has begun performing "What Did I Used To Be?" in concert to great reactions. He will perform it live on Music Fog from South By Southwest in Austin, Texas as part of their video stream from the world famous festival on March 16th. He will be joined there by his touring partner Charlie Chamberlain on mandolin and lead guitar.
