ABOUT

Re-emerging from a 15 year musical stasis. Wanting to connect with other musicians and vocalists to jam, write, perform, sing, listen to other music, do projects or start a band. I'm not a paid member of this web service so please write me directly: Tom (at) thomashume (dot) org or call anytime 317 721 4863. Available days and evenings

A self-taught musician. Played, composed, and performed in a range of musical styles and genre. Guitar (acoustic/electric) 40 yrs, and keyboards (piano, synth, multi-instrument midi) 35 yrs. Performed semi-prof in clubs, house bands, studio work for 10 years way back when. Average vocals. Tenor. Current chops are rough. Will get up-to-speed quickly and independently. Finished building smallish practice/recording space in house.

Some hardware and software is old (vintage?). married. wife is taking up drums and is amazing, DC native. no kids, last in Boston to Bâ??ton to Indy/Carmel for 10ish years in Indiana (time flies). Day job in marketing, advertising, graphic and web design and I'm so over it.
