TomTerry became inspired by the soulful sounds of the late 60s/early 70s. "As far back as I can remember I felt connected to the lower end sounds coming from the speakers of my Dad's record and 8 track players. From then on I was on a quest for the roots of American music". Tom played the Jersey Shore as a teen, and later went on to tour Europe, New England, the Midwest and the South with some of the best and brightest acts America has to offer. Tom plays and tours first and foremost with The Alexis P Suter band, and has played and toured with The Michael Louis Band, Jason Ricci & New Blood, Jeff Pitchell's Texas Flood. He served as Musical Director for The John Brandoli Band and BluesHead. He has also supported numerous performers such as the Derek Trucks Band, Johnny Winter, Wilson Pickett, Koko Taylor and Savoy Brown.
