Joining Tom now is the Baltimore-based songwriter and spoken-word artist, Wordsmith. His music is heard on Netflix hit shows like Russian Doll and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and in performances with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, where he is an artistic partner. He is performing a concert tomorrow night here in Baltimore that’s part of a multi-city tour that takes him coast to coast.

He’ll be collaborating with Kory Caudill, (pictured below, left) a recording artist, composer and pianist from Nashville, in a show called A Concert for the Human Family, at 6pm Friday night at the Church on the Square in Baltimore. Follow the links for more information.
