Artist History

Bio  Tom Tomoser



        Tom Tomoser can best be described as a renaissance man, and thus his true desire to achieve the highest artistic quality, inspired him to begin his musical career by laying a foundation from which he could grow.

         He gained his musical knowledge the old fashioned way, he studied. Before he began his studies he drew upon his talent as a strategic planner from his successful business career to layout a path to produce a quality musical product.

            It was clear to Tom from the beginning that he would need to be competent in at least 4 areas of the music business to build a rewarding and profitable career/business. His first order of business was to learn how to write music. He began by studying music theory with a college professor that was also an accomplished pianist and woodwind artist playing with 2 symphony orchestras and a jazz ensemble. The next building block in Tom’s plan was to study voice so he would be able to sing his originals and make demos to send to established artists. Tom’s theory professor recommend a very highly recognized voice teacher and Tom progressed at a steady pace writing about a song a month.

            The next step was to start producing demos to shop his originals around to singers he thought his music would work for. Tom produced demos and it was evident that producing came very easily to Tom and he quickly accumulated a catalog of his tunes.

             In the early and mid 80s music videos began to appear on MTV, VH1, and on CMT. Tom made a good connection in Nashville with the producer of “Video Country” and talked him into running 2 of Tom’s full-blown master quality music videos he produced using 2 of his songs with full orchestral arrangements. The ballad received 500 pieces of positive response when it ran in the new artist segment of Video Country. The response was 90% female. Tom made a note of that and always tends to target the ladies in his song selection and marketing. It was evident that Tom’s music would never fit in the country genre because his music is ‘Too Pop” Too AC’ and “Too Jazz.” Tom also learned that he needed to study lyric writing. While in Nashville he met Jon Ims a hit songwriter who gave private lessons and a Grammy winning songwriter and author, Sheila Davis, who gave private lessons.  Tom learned much about lyric writing from both of these wonderful people.

             Tom dismissed the idea of being signed by a major label and instead opened his own indie label Lone Eagle Records. The first release from Lone Eagle was “Cool Smooth & Sassy” spotlighting a tenor sax session player named Joe Genovesi. Tom put 14 of his ballads on “Cool.” He pressed 1000 copies and sold 500 the first 6 months and to date has sold 1200+ CDs and is still selling CDs and downloads on www.cdbaby.com. Tom has produced and released 15 CDs on his Lone Eagle label, sold and marketed primarily through CD Baby and their digital partners.  

              In 2009 Tom was doing a radio show out of Kansas City and was asked to write and sing an arrangement of “America The Beautiful” for a special Memorial Day Show. A female restaurant owner heard Tom and called Tom and asked him to do a live show for a ladies night out at her restaurant in KC. Tom did the show and as a result he made the decision to move from producer to performer and start the 4th phase of his musical career. Tom began singing out every chance he got at restaurants, rest homes and karaoke bars. Tom’s upscale lounge style act featuring a lotta Sinatra, classic love songs and his original fare is extremely well received by all ages from 20s up.

              Tom had the honor of singing his arrangement of America at the last Memorial Day ball game ever at Rosenblatt Stadium, home of the College World Series in 2010. Tom met Chuck Pennington the keyboardist of Manheim Steam Roller fame and enlisted him to play for him on America. This opened the door for Tom and Chuck to work on 6 more songs together, 4 of which are on Tom’s latest release “Love Passionately.”

           Every 10 minutes an American dies in an alcohol related auto accident. These deaths are the results of bad decisions. Drinking is a two part activity; going out and getting home alive. This is the story of one kid who didn’t make it home alive.

Tom Tomoser sings up a storm on his recent released CD, “Love Passionately,” as he lets the listeners sit back and relax to a wonderful collection of 8 popular Pop classics and 8 original songs. All these songs have one thing in common: love, and that just what make this a soothing and sweet CD. Tomoser takes his vocal talents and weaves a unique and charming crooner tonality that is not only honest and sincere but strong and heartfelt. His rendition of “My Way,” originally sung by Frank Sinatra, is warm and tender as the distinctive voice of Tomoser gracefully sings his way around the stunning lyrics. Another song, “Pretty Lady,” is soulful and has a quaint Bluesy appeal as the walking bass line and bright piano riffs cascade around the vocals. The song, “All The Way,” is another great standard with nice vocals and lovely crisp piano. Fans of Pop music with musical styles from yesteryear will thoroughly enjoy the beautiful arrangements on the album, “Love Passionately.”

  Liner Notes For John Miller
POSTED BY: radioindy POSTED ON: 03 Dec 2010 01:42 AM

Liner Notes For John Miller

(Alternative titles)

“How To Drink And Not Kill Yourself Or Kill Anybody Else”

or

“You Gotta Be Smarter Than The Booze You Drink

Drinking alcohol is a matter of personal choice. Anyone who chooses to drink
alcohol owes it to themselves, their loved ones, and anyone they may come in contact with
while they are drinking; to understand alcohol and it use for recreational purposes. This
includes learning the warning signals of alcoholism before recreational drinking begins. A
simple call to a local chapter of Alcoholics Anonymous will enable you to ask for the “10
Questions Pamphlet.” Read all the questions. These are the warning signals of alcoholism.
Unfortunately the questions can’t be answered until you start drinking, but if you read
them before you start recreational drinking, it will be easier to recognize them if they occur
when you drink. Answering yes to any 2 of the 10 questions means you are an alcoholic. AA
is the most knowledgeable organization to recognize and treat alcoholism.

The most important thing to understand about alcohol is it is an anesthetic
drug! Different people have different tolerance for anesthetic, some people are completely
drunk on 2 beers, and others can drink 2 quarts of hard liquor, and still function
reasonably well.

Alcohol can be as dangerous or more dangerous than a firearm, when used
without knowing it nature and it’s effects on the human mind and body. All states have
mandatory hunter safety courses to teach people how to safely use firearms. It is also
required to take a firearm safety course to receive a permit to carry a pistol. There is a
rule in business that should be applied here; that rule says, “If it makes sense do it!” So if
alcohol can be as dangerous as a firearm, doesn’t it make sense to teach people how to use
alcohol safely?

John Miller lost his life at 19 years of age because he never learned how to use
alcohol safely. Thousands of American lives can be saved, if people are taught how to use
alcohol safely, preferably before they start drinking but in any case at some point in their
life if they choose to consume alcohol on a recreational basis. Remember an American dies
every 10 minutes in an alcohol related automobile accident.

One last point Alcoholics can never use alcohol safely! It is a proven fact there
is only one safe course of action for an alcoholic; 1st admit you’re an alcoholic, 2nd attend
as many AA meetings as necessary to maintain a safe and sober life through complete
abstinence.

I offer this information with deep hope that those who read these words and
listen to the tragic story of John Miller will learn from John’s mistakes and not repeat
them, and live a full, rich, and happy life, as I have.

  The following is a pre-review heads up note from Lea Jane Berinati
POSTED BY: radioindy POSTED ON: 22 Nov 2010 08:14 PM

The following is a pre-review heads up note from Lea Jane Berinati of Nashville.
Lea Jane is one of the most sought after backup singers and producers in Nashville and
frequently opens for the stars of the music business.

Lea Jane Berinati’s
First Impression

“So I guess life is too busy, because --- with the best of intentions—I have misplaced
your CD at least four times, put it in my car twice, and finally got to listen to three cuts on my
way to a session. I promise I will eventually listen to every note. If you need a review right now
(and you needed it last month I’m sure), you can say this from me: “This album is all heart”
Lea Jane Berinati, Lea Jane Singers Nashville, Tn.

“Who ever you are singing these love songs to is one lucky lady, because it is evident
that you mean every word. There is so much feeling on this album. Even the saxophone sings
beautifully. And you my friend, handle the range of notes with amazing ease. There are some
unusual melodies in there that call for skill as well as interpretation, and you’ve got it covered.
Congratulations!”

Here is a snippet from Lea Jane’s Bio to give you an idea of her credibility.

Lea Jane was soon a familiar name as a session singer, a vocal group leader, and arranger.
In addition she toured as a keyboardist/vocalist with the Earl Scruggs Revue. She also
recorded and performed with Guy Clark’s band and opened for Emmy Lou Harris in
London. As one of the Hollady Sisters, she appeared in Paris with Eddy Mitchell and
began recording with Elvis Presley. When the Holladays left Nashville, Lea Jane continued
working with Elvis and it was with her own group – The Lea Jane Singers- that she left
a permanent vocal signature in Nashville and the recording industry. The artists with
whom she has worked on hit records reads like the “Who’s Who of the great performers
of all time-including Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Charlie Daniels, Ronnie
Milsap, Brenda Lee, Elvis Costello, Lobo, James Galway, Dr. Hook, Tammy Wynette,
Lynn Anderson, Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn, Steve Wariner, Petula Clark, Wille Nelson,
Waylon Jennings, Jessi Colter, Porter Wagoner, Hank Snow, George Jones, Barbara
Mandrell, Frank Sinatra Jr., Nancy Sinatra and the list continues.

One of the most notable things that Lea Jane did as a session player on Kenny
Rogers and Dottie West recording of “Don’t Fall In Love With A Dreamer” was to say to
Kenny when he wanted to record it a 5th time. Lea Jane said, “Kenny we can record this
again if you want, it may be a little different but it won’t be any better, it’s a hit as it is why
don’t you press it? Kenny looked at her and said, “You really thinks it’s a hit, and Lea
Jane said, “I know it’s a hit.” So Kenny agreed and Lea Jane was right and Kenny and
Dottie had a hit.
