Born on a Friday the 13th, in London, England; Tom Heyfron’s musical background reads like a “who’s who” of the early British rock scene. Performing on the bass guitar, Tom has worked with Reg Presley, Jeff Beck, Rod Stewart and Mick Waller in the early days of such groups as the Troggs, Action and Nightshift.
Arriving in Canada on November 26, 1966, Tom continued his musical career in the busy Yorkville days of the sixties Toronto. He has been entertaining regularly throughout Ontario ever since and, relying on his background of British Rock and Blues, has built a reputation as one of the most intense performers on the scene.
In addition to his years of experience with Face to Face and other acts, Tom has traveled widely throughout Canada and Europe, gaining valuable knowledge about the production end of his craft and expanded his musical abilities to include keyboards and the full range of MIDI programming. The application of this knowledge can be heard in his high energy Classic Rock show of today.
During the period between 1998 and 2001 Tom, in partnership with fellow musician David Goyette co-wrote, produced, engineered and arranged two CD’s that have gained some notoriety world-wide. “Beaten Path”, a tribute to The Beatles, was endorsed by Sir George Martin and many other notables, was threatened with legal action by Yoko Ono and “Songs For John”, a tribute to the work of John Lennon, released on September 3rd, 2001, again attracted the attention of both the media and Yoko Ono/Apple Corp. once again. Curious? Check it out at Beaten Path.
All in all this combination of hard work and talent makes Tom Heyfron a ‘must see’ artist on the scene today.
