NWMM.com is a website dedicated to the music, activism and philosophy of Tom Morello. While the site is first and foremost about his solo, acoustic(ish) work under the name The Nightwatchman, it is our intent to cover all of his various music projects, artistry and influences from Woody Guthrie to Bruce Springsteen and beyond.
Who We Are
“The Nightwatchman is my political folk alter ego. I’ve been writing these songs and playing them at open mic nights with friends for some time. This is the first time I’ve toured with it. When I play open mic nights, it’s announced as The Nightwatchman. There will be kids there who are fans of my electric guitar playing, and you see them there scratching their heads.”
While the sound of The Nightwatchman may stray somewhat from Morello’s signature electric guitar, punk-rock and blues influenced, pentanic scale driven work typical of Rage Against the Machine, the same revolutionary spirit is very apparent. Listen to The Nightwatchman, for free, on Amazon.
