Thomas Aren McDonald is a 23 year old multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer from southern Rhode Island, USA.

At the age of 18, Tom moved to Wilmington, North Carolina. While living in this up and coming southern port city, Tom fell in with a crowd of exceptional musicians, and quickly established himself within the city’s burgeoning musical community. In addition to the UNCW Jazz Combo, Tom played guitar with some of the scene’s most exciting groups, including Jazz/Hip Hop group the Coastal Collective and the powerhouse soul-rock band Rebekah Todd and the Odyssey, all the while honing his craft as a working singer/songwriter.

During his four year stint in North Carolina,Thomas was challenged to play a variety of musical styles on a frequent basis (playing over 100 shows a year), gaining him notoriety within the local and regional scene as an adaptable and creative player. While playing with the Coastal Collective, Rebekah Todd and the Odyssey and other groups, he shared bills with acts as diverse as Lupe Fiasco, Rusted Root, Dr. Dog, Nappy Roots, and Big Something.

Thomas’s music blends a myriad of genres, representative of his eclectic tastes as a listener. Elements of Americana, blues, jazz, electronic, hip hop, latin, and soul music all come together to create a distinct, ever-evolving sound that evades neat categorization.
