Moogvember Marquee Artist - Tom Brislin
This is the second of two shows by Tom Brislin on November 28. The two shows will be unique experiences.
STAGE AND STUDIO
Tom Brislin has performed on tour and on recordings for several of the biggest names in classic rock, including Yes, Meat Loaf, and Debbie Harry of Blondie. In 2019, Tom joined the legendary Kansas as the group’s keyboardist/backing vocalist.
Tom is also a member of the progressive rock group The Sea Within, which features top musicians Roine Stolt (Flower Kings), Jonas Reingold (Steve Hackett Band), Daniel Gildenlöw (Pain of Salvation), Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson), and Casey McPherson (Flying Colors). The group assembled in London in 2017 to record their debut album, which was released on June 22, 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. He is also a frequent performer with fellow New Jersey native Glen Burtnik (The Weeklings, Styx, The Orchestra).
ARTIST AND COMPOSER
Tom wrote, performed, and produced the critically admired album Hurry Up and Smell the Roses in 2012. Released directly to fans through a successful crowdfunding campaign, the album features Tom's varied array of musical influences under the stylistic umbrella he calls "Cinematic Pop."
Prior to his solo work, Tom was the songwriter, musical director, and producer of the band Spiraling. The group released four albums, two EPs, and toured the US in support of groups such as OK Go, They Might Be Giants, and Violent Femmes.
Tom is also one of the writers of the new album by Kansas, The Absence of Presence.
“The Absence of Presence takes the band even further into the progressive rock arena while still maintaining the classic Kansas sound. Longtime, hardcore fans will roar with approval at the precise musicianship, contemplative lyrics, soaring vocals with tight harmonies, intricate arrangements, memorable riffs, complex changes, and majestic musical passages in the album’s nine songs.” — AMERICAN SONGWRITER
