Tom Juarez is a former actor who hosted the rock-video show "Night Flight" for 3 seasons in the early 90's. He's been writing songs since he was a teenager, but never had the confidence or resources to set them down.
Time and technology have conquered both, and Tom has waded into the waters of songwriting with an emphasis on wordsmithing, and a stylistic diversity that covers the musical map from Rock (Slow Burn) to Alt. Rock (Mens Rea) to Pop (Breathe In) to Country (So Fast, Shutters) with a splash of R & B (Disagree, Groove? Rut?)
"Mens Rea" is Latin legal parlance for "guilty mind", one of the components of a crime. This is an album about intentions and consequences -knowing that what we want to do might be wrong and dealing with the fallout in the realms of politics, desire, and religion.
This album took two years to complete, and was entirely self recorded, produced, mixed, mastered, and, with the exception of one song ("Shutters" written by Matthew Buzzell of Night People), self written.
Tom resides in Long Beach, CA.
