Session Information

Tom Solis is a professional singer/songwriter out of Newport Beach, CA where he works, lives and plays (usually all at the same time).  Tom was born and raised on a small ranch in Palm Desert, CA complete with horses, pickup trucks, swimming pools, sand volleyball courts and a par 3 golf hole. This “surf and turf” background is where Tom draws his laid back lyrics, tropical mood and edgy inspiration when writing music. Tom’s sound is a powerful combination of pop/southern rock, adult alternative, Americana, and contemporary.  You will hear a subtle twang in his vocal, which he picked up back on the ranch, listening to Garth Brooks, Clint Black and others.  But, Tom’s greatest musical influence comes from the heart of Rock-n-Roll.  Tom is the nephew of rock legend Sammy Hagar.  Uncle Sammy was the first to recognize Tom’s natural ability and at the age of 8, he gave Tom his first electric guitar after Tom learned how to play I can’t Drive 55. Two decades later, Tom and Sammy write and record music together with their latest hit single No Worries ready for release on Sammy’s next acoustic record.

Tom Solis provides music entertainment for corporate events, private parties, clubs, and the like.  He can perform as a solo act, duo, trio or 4- 5 piece band depending on the occasion and size of the audience.  As any of these entities, Tom can play an array of top 40 songs ranging from 50’s to current pop songs that we all know and love.
