It is rare to find a group of established artists who are able to bring their individual muses together, creating a musical whole which surpasses the sum of its individual parts. The Sherpas have this ability, and the result is soul-stirring. Tom Prasada-Rao, Michael Lille, and Tom Kimmel first met in 1993, when all three were winners of the prestigious Kerrville New Folk competition; since that time they have toured together on both coasts and points between.

SherpasClose friends for years, often passing like ships in the night as they pursued solo careers, the band members have finally found common ground for long enough to record a stunning album. “Honor Among Thieves” is a soulful presentation, weaving a tapestry of their many facets through thirteen spiritual, political, romantic, groovy, compelling collaborative compositions. Unique.

Tom Kimmel’s songs have been recorded by legendary artists from Joe Cocker to Linda Ronstadt. Tom Prasada-Rao’s passion and soul have earned him numerous writing and performing awards, and Michael Lille’s songwriting and lustrous guitar playing have earned him the respect and admiration of peers and fans across the country.
