Tomi has been on tour twice with Pam Tillis
when in Australia as well as with the Warren Brothers and
in Troy Cassar-Daley's support band for Merle Haggard.
He has backed such artists of repute including
Lee Kernighan, Troy Cassar-Daley, Anne Kirkpatrick and Alvy
Pool. He has recorded on CD's for Troy Cassar-Daley's first
album, on both of Alvy Pools Albums, Karyn Lynn, Pat Drummond,
Tracy Costa, Mark Jackson and Hunter & Suzy Owens.
Tomi had already learned to play the banjo
which made it easy for him when he started using pick blocking
on the pedal steel as developed by Paul Franklin.
