Tom Woods has been playing drums for 35 years. His minimalist drum style can be traced back to his back to his beginning, learning to play on a borrowed snare. He received his primary musical education by attending numerous club shows and studying the various bands in the North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad music scene. He cut his teeth in a number of garage bands in and around Greensboro. Tom has been a fan of the blues from a young age and sites Taj Mahal, King Curtis and Champion Jack Dupree as his main blues music influences.
