Songwriting became a passion during those times, as he spearheaded several bands with emphasis on original material. Tommy was fortunate enough to back the legendary Emmylou Harris, and record two albums with regional favorites The Rosslyn Mountain Boys. Since moving to Nashville, he has moved easily between the old school, contemporary country and artists on the cutting edge. Click here recording and live credits to see a partial listing.
"NOT ROCKET SCIENCE" is Tommy's recent instrumental project. Blending many of his influences in a diverse, engaging set of mostly self-penned compositions, his steel guitar spans the gaps between bluegrass, jazz, country, ballads and blues.

"Page One" is a vintage collection of Tommy songs, mostly country, and including one instrumental.
"7 1/4" is a fiery album from the RVS band of 1996 who all wore the same hat size. A show case for the group's singing, writing, and instrumental prowess.
"SHELLTONES" was what someone yelled out as an earlier incarnation of Ricky Van Shelton's band hit the stage to sit in. The name stuck, and the band recorded some hot, pretty and swingin' instrumentals .
