Tom Savage has been a working, touring, recording musician for 18 years, and counting. Over his career, Tom has released 8 independently produced albums of original music, 6 solo albums, and 2 with Tom Savage Trio. Recognized and respected by his fellow musicians as a “road warrior”, Tom has logged many a mile (or kilometre as it were) across Canada and into the USA in the name of music. His first Canadian tour dates back to 2001, and he has seen practically every saloon, dive bar, or coffeehouse this country has to offer.
Tom toured a number of years as the Tom Savage Trio, performing spirited Alt Country/ Rock with constant musical comrade Geoff Chown, and a revolving door of drummers (one newspaper referred to them as Canada’s Spinal Tap). In recent years, Savage has opted for solo touring and has constructed a bunk for sleeping in his minivan, keeping costs low and profit margins high. He has camped out many a night in Walmart parking lots, provincial parks, or friendly driveways during his travels.
As well as songwriting, singing, playing electric, acoustic and slide guitar, and playing in three or four bands at a time, and being a dad, Tom has taken to producing records for local artists including Al Duquette and Sandy Stubbert.
