Tom learned to play guitar and penned his first songs while attending college at West Virginia University. After graduating, he lived in the Washington D.C. area and worked on Capitol Hill as a lobbyist. Eventually, he relocated to Nashville, TN and become a full time singer and songwriter.
While in Nashville, Tom fell into favor with a contingent of Texas based songwriters, leading to regular co-writes with major players in the Red Dirt music scene. A number of those artists brought Tom on the road as an opening act.
As an artist, Tom’s songs are derived from personal experiences and everyday blue-collar life. With influences ranging from Classic and 90s Rock to Red Dirt and Americana, his sound has been described as, “Country Roots Rock.”
Tom’s debut release, Bad for You EP (2017) features the song “Deserve” which he wrote and performed with Top 40 Country artist, Luke Combs. Since its release, his music has been streamed more than 2 million times.
“She’s Hell,” the first single from Tom’s forthcoming project was released in October 2019. It was recorded at Melody Mountain Ranch in Stephenville, TX.
