I have been a musician all my life, since reaching up to the piano keys before age 4 and going on to study classical piano and gain a doctorate in music from the Royal Academy of Music in London, England.
I play several other instruments
and I create, sing, play and produce my own original music and spoken word.
I have released two blues albums, a double album of other genres and a spoken word
I'm proud to be an inducted member of the USA Blues Hall of Fame and to have my work added to the National Cultural Archive of New Zealand where I live at present. I also am a professional member of the British Academy of Songwriters and have a catalogue of over 450 copyrighted songs. 2015 saw me honoured to be awarded the Female Blues Vocalist of the Year
by the Independent Broadcasters’ Association.
My first blues release on Reverbnation took me to #1 nationally where I remained for 7 years - and in 2016 was honored to be selected for inclusion by the Willie Dixon family on a blues compilation album 'Blues Around the World'.
I also have been broadcasting blues shows and interviews for eight years and I also produce a World Music show, on several radio networks in the US, UK, Canada and South America. You can find more info on my 'Tommie Radio' page here.
Music has no boundaries, only those we create - please join me in my World of Music.
