Tommy studied in Munich at a prestigious music academy and left with a classical music degree in 1975.

At the age of 15 he formed his first band playing songs by the likes of The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Eric Burdon & The Animals, which cemented his love for British music.

Later he switched to playing blues and jazz on the organ, influenced by such greats as Jimmy Smith, Keith Emerson and Brian Auger.

Tommy was soon to become an in-demand session player and, together with musicians from all over the world, including members of the James Brown Band, he gained valuable experience in other styles, such as soul, funk, country and reggae.

He then went on to tour Europe and Asia with various bands, later moving to Tokyo and working solo for several years before returning to his native Germany. Then in 2021 he moved to Valencia and soon afterwards met Graham and the other band members at a jam session in Gandia.

Graham had been looking for an experienced keyboard player for some time and invited him to join his band. As a result Tommy is now a fully-fledged member of the group and, together with his favourite instruments, the Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer pianos as well as the Hammond B3 organ, is now happily rediscovering his blues/rock roots.
