News and Notes
Best known as former guitarist and songwriter for Guided By Voices, Tobin Sprout has more recently gained acclaim for three solo albums of charming, slightly skewed pop --as well as for his new band, eyesinweasel. While fans and critics alike have recognized his musical talents, Sprout may be even more gifted as a painter. His striking photo-realist paintings feature such domestic details as storefronts, stovetops, and kitchen appliances. His work can be found on album covers and in galleries throughout the Midwest, including his own in Michigan, The Petrified Fish.
