Music from "Touchy Feely"

by Tomo Nakayama



"It was like the most transcendent experience I’ve had in a live music situation. Literally, at the time, I thought to myself, 'That voice in this space has to go into one of my movies.'” - LYNN SHELTON

“The most compelling moment is a musical interlude in which Jenny and Paul attend a performance by Tomo Nakayama, the lead singer of the Seattle band Grand Hallway. Delivered by Mr. Nakayama in a plaintive cry as he accompanies himself on guitar, his ballad “Horses” distills the inchoate longings of these likable characters more effectively than any spoken words. “Is it a blessing or a curse to be found?” the lyrics wonder. “Is it a burden or a gift to be bound?” - NEW YORK TIMES

“The cast is superb from top to bottom, though I was particularly moved by a small role played by musician Tomo Nakayama. He wrote the song Horses especially for the film, and as the credits rolled I raced to the Internet to hear it again.” - USA TODAY

"When music journalists say things like 'this artist is a fixture in Seattle music,' there’s probably no one right now who fits that title better than Nakayama." - KEXP
