Tom Slot has been writing, recording, and playing music since he was a teenager. In the late 1990s and early 200s he earned a reputation as a clever songwriter and energetic lead singer while touring with What About Jon?, The Tom Slot Band, and Page Six. During that time he performed hundreds of shows up and down the east coast appearing at colleges, clubs, and festivals with stops at historic clubs like CBGBs and opening for national recording artists like The Getaway People. Shortly after moving to New York City he recorded and released the solo EP Another Place I Can’t Go Back in August of 2007. This recording was followed up with the 2009 release of the Suicide Kids Soundtrack. While Tom still writes songs and occasionally perform live with and without a band, his musical compositions have mostly focused on musical theater since 2009.
