The group assembled in London in 2017 to record their debut album, which will be released in Spring 2018 on Sony/InsideOut Music.

Tom was the keyboardist for 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Yes on their 2001 Symphonic Tour. The tour was documented on the concert DVD/Blu-Ray Yes Symphonic Live. Tom's connection to Yes has led to collaborations on stage and in studio with several notable artists, including Renaissance, Camel, Anderson/Stolt, Francis Dunnery, and The Syn.

Tom has toured as pianist for multi-platinum-selling legend Meat Loaf and was featured on the albums/videos Storytellers and Couldn't Have Said it Better. He was touring keyboardist for legendary Blondie singer Debbie Harry in support of her solo album Necessary Evil, and served as the group's Musical Director.
