ABOUT

VMS is the label given to the collaboration of two professional musicians who have a noteworthy musical connection. Tom has played professional guitar for 30+ years and now pursues his lifelong dream of playing drums. Jane has won two Emmy's for her work on PBS nature documentary soundtracks and has recorded 9 albums as well as worked live on the east coast. In one incarnation, we play jazz standards with KJ McElrath, Pianist Extraordinaire. In another, we play Jane's original New Folk Show from her years touring on the East Coast 1977-2006. Further ambitions include recording more original material in Tom's studio and developing a foundation of solid musicianship and arrangements to produce a musical product that is enjoyable to listen to in clubs.....you know, as in, paid gigs. We firmly believe that, good music will always have a venue.
