This next batch of singles we are releasing are songs directly related to my life and death experience I had last year. I Tom Iapicco, write, record, and play all the songs in my band JTL, along with my wife Lana. Last year I had a liver transplant. Doctors told me my time was up. Not even a transplant would save me. Actually, I was told that even if I was put on a transplant list, I would not live to receive a liver. I was given about a week to live. I was told to call Hospice. The story I am about to tell you is how God saved my life. If it was not for God, I would not be here today.
I arrived at the hospital, and the doctors told me there was nothing they can do, to go home and die in my living room. My wife would have none of it and transported me to a transplant hospital in Orlando Florida. Once there I was told the same thing. There was no chance. They would keep me there, make me comfortable, but I would surely be dead by the weekend. Well, the fact that I’m writing this surely shows God’s miracles and healing hand. As the weeks went by I went through test after test, fighting for my life as my wife, continued to write out scripture verse and tape them to my hospital room wall. A month went by and I was still fighting for my life and trying the best I could to hang in there. I was not even well enough to even consider transplant surgery, let alone get on a donor list. My fight continued. After about a month and a half, to the amazement of the hospital staff, I was still alive 100% completely because of our loving Savior who was with me day in and day out. Whispering in my ear to have faith, and hang in there. So I did.
I was finally able to pass a long list of medical tests to see if I would survive a transplant, let alone get on a transplant list. My Meld score (the score that tells how bad a patient is as far as needing a transplant) was beyond 40. Not a survivable situation. Finally the day came that I was approved to get on the transplant list. I told Lana, I just wanted to get to that point and least to show that I could survive, after this point I was ready to meet my Lord. At least I made it this far. As soon as the hospital staff entered my room to give us the news I was on the list, we were at least happy I made it that far. I could feel that I couldn’t hold on much longer. This in itself was God at work right there. Just the fact that I made it that far.
But, as God usually does, He was not finished yet. It was not at least 3 hours after I made the transplant list, that again, the hospital staff entered my room once again and let us know that we had just received 2 liver offers, and my surgery for the transplant was scheduled in 10 hours that next morning. Now, I realize that there were many at people work here, especially the wonderful human beings who donate their life saving organs ( I too am on the list to donate, please consider doing so if you are not already a donor) for people like me and others who need them, but the biggest miracle was the Lord our God, who saved my life. It was Him and only Him, that created this miracle. These next songs I am about to release are all about giving Him praise and thanking Him for loving us. PRAISE BE TO GOD!

Hey Everybody,

It’s been a while since our last post, but with everything going on this year we just want to shout out to The One who makes ALL things possible…..our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and thank Him for everything He’s done for us. As we celebrate His birth this year, we pray God blesses you immensely and surrounds you with His love and mercy. From our family to yours, please have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

I Love You Lord. I Love you Jesus. I’m still in the process of writing, recording, singing, and playing whatever instrument I’m playing (drums, guitar, bass, etc…) to YOU, for YOU the album called “SONGS TO GOD”. Because I love you. I love YOU FOREVER. My LORD.

The music is finally HERE!

Hey There!

Father’s Day

Happy Fathers Day to you all you dads out and there and especially The FATHER OF ALL FATHERS! (GOD Himself) Enjoy the summer!

We have been getting some emails from people ,artists, friends, etc that are asking about if there is going to be any new tunes from LOL Artists or what? Well, after I replied to the 2 people that asked, I told them that YES! We plan on releasing new music. We are still in the process of building the recording/home studio, writing the songs, playing them, mixing and finally releasing more music. I started LOL Records a long time ago. I play the drums, but also play guitar, and GASP!!! I’m singing these tracks too. It’s taking so long because I’m pretty much doing it alone, and it’s taking quite a bit of time. But, when it’s done we have already made arrangements to play quite a few shows. But, the most important thing to me, and I sorta forgot this after I got a little older, was that God and our Lord Jesus Christ, are what is the most important thing to me. It took me a few years and some hard learned lessons to know that that is the real truth about my life. So, that being said, this whole new CD is called, “SONGS TO GOD”. It’s for Him. So I’m really trying to do the best I can because I don’t want to screw it up if you know what I mean! Feel the same way? Want to start a similar project? If you’re in the Tampa area, please feel free to contact me through http://www.lolrecords.com and click the “Contact Us” link and fill out the form. Hello? Anyone there? Ok. Well at least I’m reading this.

God Bless!

“Well it looks like the world ain’t gonna end after all”

Before I continue with today’s post—let me just say this . . . I realize that there was indeed a Saint Nicholas who went around and did good deeds throughout his community. I understand that carrying on his tradition and legend by giving children gifts on Christmas is fun and creates lasting memories. I have no problem with Santa, and can remember having fun as a child myself. That being said, I wish we would all focus more on Jesus. After all, it’s His party. I heard this song the other day playing in a store. As I listened to the traditional, fun-loving classic…I thought about the words as I hummed along. Sometimes it seems that we as a society try to instill a fear into our children to do right because of the consequences of Santa. It’s like we want them to fear him and to be concerned that he’s always watching, and he’s going to come back and judge those who have been naughty and nice. So, I decided to rewrite the lyrics just a bit to put emphasizes where it should really be—back on Jesus. He’s the only One who knows everything—and who is really coming back (in fact, who’s to say He hasn’t already made His presence known here on earth already–now that’s food for thought, huh). Anyway, I still think it’s okay to sing about Santa—but I just wanted to throw this out there too.

 

We love you Jesus and hope that you always feel invited to come to our house and find us diligently striving to be on Your Nice list! : )

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Jesus Christ is coming to town
He’s making a list
And checking it twice;
Already knows Who’s naughty and nice
Jesus Christ  is coming to town
He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!
O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Jesus Christ is coming to town
Jesus Christ is coming to town
