Born in Nashville with drumsticks in his hands Thomas Overbey set up his first snare drum in the back seat of the car when he was six and was hooked after his first drum-roll. By age nine, he'd already become accustomed to the recording studio environment singing for the late Helen O’Connell.

 

During his early teen years in Nashville, Thomas often had accomplished musicians over to play music; many of which were in their thirties and forties. During college, Thomas was the resident drummer and percussionist for theater, which included accomplished Broadway performers in various summer-stock

programs.  Those performances included Godspell and The Fantasticks. Since then Tom has played with various Rock, Country, Jazz and Blues bands. Playing in a band to a crowd of over 7,000, Thomas enjoyed playing in the River Riot, a long forgotten music series sponsored by USF.  He's also had numerous appearances at the famous 'Skipper’s Smokehouse' in Tampa.

 

Thomas has recorded with several bands and received recognition with the 70’s sounding group named The Utensils. He continues his musical endeavors today playing in Blues and Rock Bands as well as serving as recording engineer producing CDs for his company Sprint Multimedia, Inc.
