Bio

Tom Quigley is a guitarist and singer/songwriter who grew up in Athens, Georgia and after living all over the country is back there as a performing base. After a career as an engineer in Silicon Valley, he has taken his 30 year guitar avocation and started writing, recording and performing full time. He has collaborated with Wilma, a favorite of Athens audiences, has opened for Nashville favorite Hoss Howard, and opened for the award winning Alathea - often playing across North Georgia and Western North Carolina. His fingerstyle approach to the instrument is a mixture of jazz, classical and folk influences reminiscent of James Taylor, Jim Croce, David Wilcox and Lindsay Buckingham.

His debut CD, Aversion to Reason, was engineered and recorded at John Keane Studios in Athens where REM, The B-52s, Indigo Girls and Wide Spread Panic have all recorded discs. He loves to perform in small intimate venues and events and is busy working on his follow-on disc to Aversion to Reason.

Why "Aversion to Reason"? Tom says "For an artist trapped in an engineer's body over a long career in corporate america, escaping the rigors and demands of rational, reasonable thought to do a CD of jazz, folk, classical, country and rock seems satisfyingly unreasonable." Tom's approach to song writing can be summed up in the following: "Sometimes the lyric or music just speaks through the guitar, through the melody, and you just have to get out of the way and let it be." So be it.

Tom's music can be found on the independent label Swiftwatermusic and at various digital download venues: iTunes, Amazon.com, Rhapsody, Naptster and eMusic. For booking and management information see indie@swiftwatermusic.com
