at his studies with Bay Area teaching legend Chuck Brown. While working with Perry, Tommy recorded her Grammy winning song “Beautiful,”which became a #1 single for Christina Aguilera. Tommy has several production projects, a
television project in development, teaching, playing live and a new album in production. He recently completed a successful tour of Europe with his bandmates from Vain. As well as playing on the critically acclaimed, 2011 Vain
