“There is a boundary to passions when we act from feelings; but none when we are under the influence of imagination.”
–William Burke 1780
For more than thirty years Tom’s simple path has been a life rich in music, art and travel, yielding a career filled with nine studio albums, numerous songwriting credits, and collaborations with other artists such as Willy Porter, Joyce Andersen and David Wilcox.
Tom’s sophisticated guitar work forms the rich backdrop for his warm tenor that delivers melodies and lyrics exploring the full range of the human and global experience.
Tom’s paintings have a distinctive approach that embodies the palette of Matisse, Rothko’s broad bands of color, and the mercurial qualities of American Impressionism. The synthesis of color and his unaffected approach to representation has produced a resonant and evocative body of work.
