Thomas Toivonen has played guitar and written songs since he was 11 years old.
He was self-taught for many years and this perhaps is why he has developed such a unique sound.
He has been studying improvisation with Andy Fite since 1999.
Andy Fite's method is to focus on hearing, feeling, and trusting one's own intuition rather than "rules"
laid out by different schools of thought.
He has also taken some lessons with the legendary jazz pianist Connie Crothers in New York.
His main instrument is the guitar but he also plays keyboard, drums, percussion and bass among other instruments.
