Tom’s musical journey began when he was encouraged to take up the violin aged six, he later flirted with the guitar and eventually attended formal training at the ACM School. Following graduation he taught guitar privately and has played in numerous bands across the South East and elsewhere. His playing style can be best described as combining elements of Rock, Jazz, Blues and Funk. Tom’s favourite musicians are Stevie Wonder, Sting, Nile Rodgers and Mattias “IA” Eklund. Like Grandpa Joe, Tom is also a Yorkshireman who in his spare time likes to drink tea/beer, play rugby and talk inane nonsense to anyone who’ll listen.
Tom plays his PRS 22 through Mesa-Boogie amplification.
