Singer, songwriter, recording artist and producer TOMMY GRASLEY aka TOMMYGUNN grew up in a steel town in Canada. His musical journey started as a young boy drawing on the influence of a successful musically inspired family. His father, Sonny Del Rio (CROWBAR) played saxophone with Kelly Jay (CROWBAR) and King Biscuit Boy (aka Richard Newell), and received a Queens Jubilee award for excellence. On Tommy’s mother’s side (the Stewarts), cousin Rod Stewart rounded out the talent. Life for Tommy however, as a son of a musician, was tough. Feast or famine. On the flip side, however ... his home was loving, creative and musical. It didn't last long, however. His family broke up. Tommy spent the next 15 years fighting his way through life with anger, fists, vengeance, drugs and alcohol. At 33, Tommy turned his life around. He dealt with his demons. Raised a family of his own. In 2013 it was his turn. He wrote his first album UNLEASH THE HOUNDS which charted #7 in Australia and had success in the U.K. 

 

‚ÄčTommy has put his past behind him, and has created a more positive life for himself.  He is all about the love. His next album, I BELIEVE IN LOVE reflects the world around him. It tells the story of his life moving from hate to love. It was released in 2020. Tommy had the opportunity to collaborate with some of the best artists in Rock n' Roll - Eddie Kramer (Beatles, Led Zeppelin , Jimi Hendrix ...), Dale Harrison (Headstones), Greg Godovitz (Goddo); Kim DesChamps (Blue Rodeo), and more.

The album includes legends; Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth, Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band, ELO, Bee Gees) Laurence Juber (Paul McCartney & Wings), T Bear (Kiss, Pat Benatar, Mick Fleetwood, Cher, The Doobie Brothers ...).
