All of the music heard on this page is created by Tomas David Hood. That's me - Tomas, and I play guitar and keyboard, and I sing.

The guitars are by Taylor Guitars, and by Peavey.

+ The Taylor 614ce
+ The Peavey T-60

Sound amplification is through the Genz Benz Amplifiers. Here's the scoop on the amp:

+ The new SHENANDOAH-- STEREO DELUX 200, which has been designed as the most full featured professional acoustic amp available?able to reproduce the warm, natural, distinctive tones of acoustic instruments, even at high output levels. The stereo 200 watt design provides incredible headroom and is capable of continuous high level dynamic output for the club or concert stage.

The stereo amp design and "FLEXED" speaker baffle work together to better project the rich, detailed STEREO programs of the two onboard Alesis-- Digital Effects processors. Both DSP's can be assigned to operate on the same or individual channels and can be turned on and off by the footswitch (included).

To tie the sound together either through the amp, or into the recording software, Tomas uses the Line6 PODxt and TonePort UX2 to mike and shape the sound.
Influences:
Well, first, the obvious: God. Since 1972, when I was 'born again' into the new life given me by the grace of God through His son, Jesus the Christ, my life has been refined and I have been ever drawn closer to our Father. The road is not easy - and I have a lot of change to yet accomplish in my heart... His work with me is not finished!

Musically, my influences... well, there are too many to name!

We humans are musical by nature. Music, no matter where it comes from, nor who makes it, causes a response in us. I'm just like you - any music which inspires a response in me can influence me in the overall scheme of things.

I do want to be clear about something: just because an artist inspired me, musically, or had an impact in the shaping of my tastes in music, it does not mean that I endorse nor am aligned with the views, religions, political leanings, or lifestyle of any particular artist.

I have my own beliefs, forged by a life-long journey of personal search and work. These beliefs are expressed by my life, my music, how I do what I do, and so forth. No one can separate his or her religion from his or her daily life. It is one and the same.

With that foundation, let me tell you a bit about my influences, musically. Here's a wide ranging list:

John Michael Talbot; Resurrection Band; Glenn Kaiser; Joe Satriani; David Gilmore; Michael Hedges; David Lanz; George Winston; U2; Styx; Led Zep; Pink Floyd; Rush; Dream Theater; Larry Norman; Randy Stonehill; Ted Nuggent; Tommy Shaw; Dennis De Young; Jeff Beck; Jean Michael Jerre; Michael Omartian; Super Tramp; Annie Lennox; Heather Nova; Vangelis; and so many more!

I'll refine this list as time goes on, as I cannot think of all of them!
Sounds Like:
My styles range over a number of different 'sounds'. You'll just have to tell me what you think. Ok?

About Tomas David Hood

Welcome to the Official Profile of

Tomas David Hood - Singer/Songwriter and Guitarist


Tomas at Sound BoardLatest News! I have created a Facebook Music Fan Page - are you on Facebook? Please become a fan of my musical journey. Please visit Tomas David Hood, Music Fan Page, and click on 'Become a Fan'. You can also hear my music, there.

Hi. Thank you for stopping by my profile. I'm Tomas David Hood. I am a Christian. I am a song writer. I play guitar and keyboards. I am a sound engineer, and record my own demo work. My music tends to be a mix of post-rock and classic rock. I'm into Americana, folk, blues, jazz, rock, country, techno, and indie styles, if not others.

I have been a radio DJ, radio station engineer, radio show producer and engineer, live venue sound engineer, and I have played various roles in worship team efforts (drums, guitar, vocals, as well as sound engineer). I am technically inclined, and am passionate about music. I think that music is the language of the soul.

Tomas David Hood, singer and songwriter

I have been playing music, and specifically guitar, since the 1970's. In 2007, I decided to become a professional songwriter and guitarist. This is a new leg in my life journey.
