Tom thrives on writing music, is a guitar-geek and nowadays also known to sing.
He got his first guitar when he was 6, by the age of 10 he was standing on stage for the first time, and it shouldn't remain at that. Instead of becoming a doctor or a lawyer he studied music and went on to be a professional musician.
Adolescent dreams of becoming the bestest guitarist ever quickly met the reality of life as a musician and Tom found himself not only playing in several bands but also working as a session musician, guitar teacher and composer for stage plays and commercials.
Yet, it was only later in his career that Tom was introduced to his now signature style, the eye-opening moment happening when his wife pointed his attention to a video by British Singer-/Songwriter Newton Faulkner. Only days later, Tom was finally introduced to greats like Michael Hedges and Andy McKee by a friend in an all-night session of watching YouTube.
Curious and eager to learn, he started soaking up every little bit of it by means of doing what he loves most – writing music. A year and a half into it, songs written and the style slowly flowing more naturally into his playing, Tom decided to give it a shot and made his debut as a solo performer.
Tom released his solo debut EP ‘Live & Learn’ in 2012 and his new full length album 'Second Thoughts' in March 2014. He loves to perform live and can be found touring Austria, Germany, the UK and other parts of Europe as well as living his geeky side and frequently playing online.
