Artist Spotlight Compilation

"At the age of four, I picked up my first guitar and ever since, I grew up as a passionate musician exploring the theoretical, artistic and technological side of music. Developing an interest in workstations, I spent majority of my time designing sounds, building patches and arranging instrumental music on my synthesizer. I went on to complete my Grade 8 in Piano and Music Theory certification under The Associated Board of Royal School of Music, UK. Around the same time, I got my home studio set up and carried out several freelance projects for my church choir, friends and local bands. My brother, Alen Tom (Singer, Violinist), and I started recording music videos, which is when I started building my online presence through YouTube. Towards end of High School, my friend Amol Jacob(Singer, Songwriter) and I co-founded the music group "The Cable Nerds". We performed at several gigs in Muscat (Oman) and later clocked several studio hours to write new music and produce an album.

Later, in college, I joined the NITK Music Club (Mangalore, India) after which I got to grow further as a musician and live performer. The next 4 years took me through a really exciting musical journey, getting to grasp a whole new music scene. Five of us from the Music Club formed the band "Mount'N Do" [a.k.a MnD] and we went on to win several national Battle of Bands competitions all across the country. We were also listed in Sennheiser's Top 50 Emerging Bands which got us lot more opportunities in the form of gigs, recording deals and chances to open for several International bands, thus getting to showcase some of our originals.

My compositions and music performances span a variety of genres including
classical, progressive rock, blues and funk. My influences range from "Dream Theater" to "Snarky Puppy" and everything in between. Many of my recordings below feature me as a pianist, synth player, guitarist, drummer and producer/engineer in addition to the role of an arranger and composer. My current projects involve long-distant inter-continental music video collaborations."


Compositions & Recorded works

Here are few of my original works, most of them produced for theater, short films and my college cultural fest, highlight of which is the album "Quefrency". It also has bonus tracks which were written for the theme "Colors of Life"; includes music based on different emotions of a human being symbolized by the colors. In the following recordings I feature as pianist and producer/recording engineer in addition to the role of an arranger and composer.  [ The following tracks are in .mp3 format, for access to higher quality format, do contact me. ]
