Thomas creates his music in his in-home studio usually early in the morning -but the ideas can come at various times; while on the ride on lawnmower; driving along in the car; after an argument or hearing a great story etc.
How do you stay focused and balance creating with life: It’s difficult with two teenage daughters and their wants, needs and obligations and they certainly keep you grounded but Thomas and Tessa try to support each other to help stay focused.
What piece of music advice forever changed your way of thinking?: Write what you feel and don’t be led by what others are doing.
I live in… The Latrobe Valley in Gippsland, Victoria Australia. The music scene here is really starting to move again after a long lull with live entertainment which was probably due in part to the economic times and the push against drink driving (making people less inclined to go out as they felt they couldn’t have a few drinks). Now there are options with transport to and from clubs and people being smarter and designating non drinking drivers etc.
