Tommy grew up in the charming seaside sanctum of Barry, South Wales. As a twelve year old classical guitarist, he won the Vale Of Glamorgan Young Musician Of The Year competition and was to then receive the Michael Pritchard Award for Welsh rock guitarists at age seventeen. He went on to study jazz at Trinity College Of Music, jacked it in after the second year to do a spot of world touring with Canadian show, Barrage, and eventually managed to graduate from the Royal Academy Of Music after a mere seven years since embarking on higher education.

He has toured with Katherine Jenkins, with jazz legends Eddie Henderson and Gary Bartz and has played numerous West End shows including; ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘Billy Elliot’, ‘Joseph’, ‘Hairspray’, ‘Thriller’, ‘Shrek’, ‘Ghost’ etc. His own West End gigs have been; ‘The Rocky Horror Show’, ‘Fame’, ‘Jersey Boys’ and ‘Hair’ (playing rhythm guitar for Steely Dan alumnus, Elliott Randall).
