Having grown up in a house where music was omnipresent, Tom’s love affair with various soundscapes started at a very early age. So early, in fact, that he would mark his parents’ favorite records with a star because he was still too young to read or write. Tom’s first live concert experience was the Beach Boys but it wasn’t until some years later at an early 90′s hip hop show that Tom realized that he too was destined to perform. While attending Purdue, he started writing rhymes and making beats, fast forward to Chicago and he started doing shows around town. At venues like Schuba’s, The Hideout, The Rainbo Club, Nevins, and others, performing both as an emcee as well as DJ. With an immediate positive response to the DJing aspect of his performances, he started to focus his efforts on cleverly programming party rockin’ DJ sets. Venue owners quickly took notice of Tom’s unique skills, and he’s now held several residencies at various Chicago hot spots.
