Tom Melancon, aka Downward Facing Dude

Tom Melancon writes, records and performs music, sometimes as a solo artist, sometimes playing bass guitar with Seattle rock and roll bands.  Tom also blogs and writes fiction, tapping into both the darkness of his past, his sense of humor and his delight in the present.  Podcasting is Tom's newest endeavor, where he is trying to capture the spirit of live radio and share his love for music and the sometimes twisted way he looks at live with those who want to hear it.
