Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, Tommy has been living in Atlanta since 1978. While in college, he was a member of the symphonic orchestra (contra bass clarinet) and the jazz ensemble (sax and flute).

He has showcased these talents in the US and abroad, performing with and sharing the stage with such notables as The Temptations, Millie Jackson, The O’Jays, BB King, Michael Henderson, Nina Simone, Archie Bell and the Drells, Issac Hayes, Joe Simon, Bobby Blue Bland, Peaches and Herb, Johnny Taylor, The Brothers Johnson, The Isley Brothers, Adlan Cruz, Howard Hewitt, The Dells, Miles Jaye, Reynaldo Rey, The Whispers, The Stylistics, and too many more to name in a career that has spanned over 30 years.
