In 2003, Tom was engineering Jesse Malin’s Fine Art of Self Destruction, where he worked closely with Ryan Adams, the album’s producer. The two hit it off, and Ryan soon asked Tom to do some recording for Love is Hell and Rock N Roll. Since then, Tom has produced, engineered, and mixed Cold Roses, Jacksonville City Nights, and Cardinology with him.
During the time Tom and Ryan were working on Jacksonville City Nights, Norah Jones came into the studio to record a duet with Ryan. Tom had a great time working with her, and Norah requested that he engineer and mix her album Not Too Late. Since then, he has also done some production work with her on The Fall.
Most recently, Tom has been working with Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy recording and mixing Mavis Staples’ You Are Not Alone to be released in September: her first album in three years. He currently resides in Brooklyn with his wife Ariel and daughter Evelyn.Previous Page
