With a close relationship with music from an early age, Tom listened to his mum's classical vinyl records, such as The Planets
by Holst, he sat with his dad singing Buddy Holly or Johnny Cash, to pilfering his brother's AC/DC, Pink Floyd, street soul and what was back then early house music. Listening to the 808 State show and Sunset 102, the late great Stu Allen, to going to the early acid house parties, seminal clubs such as The Haçienda
and holding residencies in some of Manchester's most pumping funk clubs.
On moving to Ireland, he regularly rocked the Rougey Lodge Surf Parties before receiving a standing ovation at Sea Sessions, one of Ireland's best-loved small festivals!
Tom has amassed a huge collection of quality, rare, interesting and classic vinyl spanning a massive range of genres, including Latin, jazz, boogaloo, funk, soul, classic house, old skool hip-hop, reggae, disco, electronic, easy listening and more!
