Tom Paxton: The Elektra Years. A folk songwriter lives by standards other than those of artists working in Tin Pan Alley or down Nashville's Music Row. But by any standards, Tom Paxton must be considered among the most successful songwriters of the last 50 years. Ultimately, though, it was the album of The Weavers' historic 1955 Carnegie Hall concert that would change his life forever. Though young Tom did not know at first that the concert was in itself a protest against the anti-Communist hysteria of the day (The Weavers were blacklisted at the time), he heard rebellion coursing through even the most tender of love songs. Paxton's reward for this faithfulness to the truest folk aesthetics has come in quieter ways. As the high-beams of the folk revival faded, many of his more successful '60s contemporaries remained land-locked in that era.
Tom Paxton (born Thomas Richard Paxton on October 31, 1937) is an American singer-songwriter of folk music whose songs have had enduring appeal (and include modern standards such as "The Last Thing on My Mind") known for a cynical, often political edge. In 2009, he received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Paxton was born in Chicago, Illinois, the youngest child of Burton and Esther Paxton. The Paxton family moved to Bristow, Oklahoma in 1948, where Tom grew to adulthood and which he still considers home.
