Known the world over as an original member of one of the most accomplished funk/rock/R&B bands of all time, the legendary Cameo, Tomi has always been an integral part of the groups success. His distinctive tenor has helped define the groups signature sound as much as partner and founder Larry Blackmon’s “Ow” has. He has also co-written, along with Blackmon, many of the bands biggest hits, such as Candy, Word Up, Single Life, Flirt, Back and Forth, She’s Strange and many others. His first solo album, released on Elektra Records in 1989, was the self-titled Tomi. He released his second solo album, the independently produced The Way, in 2009. Co-produced with friends Marvin Sperling and former member of The Time, guitarist Jesse Johnson, it was a potent mix of funk and jazz influenced mid-tempo jams that gave Tomi the chance to write and produce music that had always been a major influence since he was young singer growing up in Rahway, New Jersey. His hometowns’ close proximity to New York City exposed him to a wide range of musical styles, from Jazz to Rock, Funk and R&B, to House music.
“Cameo has always been a creative breeding ground,” Tomi says. “We were continuously, fiercely original and each of us brought our own experiences to the table.”
