Second Thoughts is Tom's second solo release and his first full length album. The twelve songs reflect his past two years as a touring musician, his impressions and his views on the world around him. Second Thoughts is also the second collaboration with recording engineer and producer Robin Gillard of Happy Road Studio in Vienna. The record was mixed by Alexander Nefzger and mastered by Martin Scheer.
'Live & Learn' is Tom's solo debut. It features his now signature style on guitar, using and mixing regular fingerpicking with tapping and percussion on the instrument to make it sound like an entire band. In the studio, together with producer Robin Gillard, the goal was to record the songs as closely to the live sound as possible, though minimal overdubs were used at some points.
