Tommy Von is more than just a certified studio engineer. He is also a life-long musician with a propensity for performing and recording 60s/70s style, space-rock jams that would make any Bowie, T-Rex or Lou Reed fan instantly feel at home. Von was born in California to a musical dynasty that manufactures the world-famous line of Getzen brass instruments. He formed his first group, Myst, in 1989 and followed it up with Drive Thru Cult in 1993 after its dissolution. He relocated to San Diego to start a solo recording career and became a BMI-certified artist in the process. On the production side, Von worked as a live show engineer at California State University Fullerton and was chief engineer at King Studios in Chicago, IL. He graduated from the UCLA recording school and is an accomplished musician who can play the piano, bass, guitar, slide guitar, harmonica and mandolin flawlessly. Von recently released his latest albums, "Space Face" and "Earth Junkie" (coming soon), a collection of tripped-out, space anthems that travelled through time from the 1970s and landed in the 21st century. One can hear the strong T-Rex influence on "Rock It (To Mars)" as well as David Bowie and Bauhaus influences on "Spiders In Time."
