Thom's ever changing motion brings to life music that is rarely heard. His hands flow over a fantastic guitar that is played with intelligence and aims to move your mind. His fingers run over the large guitar frets like neurons through the brain; the flow of music never ends.
-Tobias Devor, The Boiler Room [Port Townsend, WA] - The Boiler Room

A rare breed in the music scene, this 12-string guitar player brings an element found no where else. Working a bass line with one hand and a lead with the other, it's nearly impossible not to stare at him while he works his magic. - Nick Boone [The Nick Boone Band]

Wielding a giant guitar with a big sound, Thom Catts effortlessly blends different styles of rhythm while weaving melody lines to make a musical tapestry. Mesmerizing audiences with a unique musical experience, he mixes originals and familiar covers songs to create an intimate atmosphere and a unforgettable show.

Thom plays the touch guitar. A guitar with the octave range of a piano, which facilitates the performer in playing bass and guitar simultaneously by touching (or tapping) the strings. Nearing his 20 year mark as a touch guitarist, Thom is part of a small community of musicians who exclusively play this style of guitar.

In addition to being an alumni of the Hartford Conservatory of Music [Hartford, Connecticut], he additionally studied at the University of Limerick, Ireland, and the University of the Arts [Philadelphia, Pennsylvania]. During his musical career he has performed solo across the United States, Europe, and the Republic of Ireland. He has also performed as a member/sideman/touch guitar-for-hire with numerous acts.
