A prolific writer and performer, Tom has released seven albums and played thousands of shows across the US, Canada, and Europe to dedicated fans. He has been compared to Twin Shadow, Mat Kearney and Wye Oak -- but with a distinct perspective shaped by his unusual history. A college wrestler turned Catholic seminarian turned polyamorous gay troubadour, Tom sings about disillusionment, desire, and hope in an intimate yet relatable way.
Tom's songs have been heard on ABC, HBO and Univision, and his inventive music videos have been viewed more than 12 million times. He has shared a stage with performers as diverse as Andy Grammer, Martha Wash, Taylor Dane, Adrianne Gonzalez, Matt Alber, and Catie Curtis, and he enjoys a particularly strong following in the LGBT community.
Tom was raised in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and went to college in Missouri on a wrestling scholarship with plans to become a schoolteacher. A year of student teaching changed his mind, but he still wanted to make a difference in the world -- so he decided, to the surprise of family and friends, to become a Catholic priest, moving to Washington DC to enter seminary. Frustrated by a series of #metoo experiences, Tom found his voice in songwriting and performing. After a decade in DC, he moved to Los Angeles in 2015.
