Tomi Swick

Active / Available - Confirmed: Aug. 1, 2006 (Awaiting Update)

Honesty is an ongoing theme with Tomi Swick. The thirteen songs on his debut album, Stalled Out In The Doorway, tell honest tales of some of the harsh realities of relationships. Tomi’s beautiful voice and lilting melodies sometimes belay the dark subject matter in many of the songs.

In the fall of 2006 Tomi came to the offices of Warner Music Canada for a meeting. Tomi happened to have his guitar with him and ended up performing an impromptu acoustic set in front of the entire staff. His performance was so impressive that what had been intended as a casual meeting turned into the beginnings of a record deal.

Warner Music Canada was convinced they had a very special artist with Tomi Swick and they wanted to make sure that as many people as possible would get to hear his marvellous voice. The stage was now set for him to begin recording his debut full-length album. He entered Puck’s Farm Studios north of Toronto with producer Ron Lopata. When they were done recording, internationally renowned engineer Chris-Lord Algee was sent a copy of the finished album. He liked what he heard so much that he asked if he could be involved with the project too and was engaged to do the final mixes.

“My songs don’t always make me out to be such a nice guy,” confesses Tomi Swick. “But I’m just trying to be honest about what’s going on in my life.”
