Since first appearing on the Warner release From the Heart, a collection of male artists like Michael Buble, Rob Thomas and Josh Groban, Tomi Swick’s star has been on the rise. His song “A Night Like This” climbed to #4 on the AC Radio Chart last year, and the Hamilton-based rocker’s debut Stalled Out in the Doorway is one of the Canadian success stories of last year—the disc was nominated for two Junos: Best Pop Album, and Tomi for Best New Artist. At the Canadian Music Awards, he was nominated in three different categories, including Best New Solo Artist, Best New Group or Solo Artist, and Best New Solo Artist, for three different songs. Recently, the single “Sorry Again” was the #2 most added song on mainstream AC chart.

Tomi has been winning fans through his powerful headlining shows as well as sets supporting acts as diverse as the Barenaked Ladies and the Goo Goo Dolls.

The Hamilton-born and -raised singer-songwriter attracted enough attention that Sony/BMG released his next album, Let it Shine. A much more polished effort than his debut, the disc yielded the hit “High School.”. His third disc, Goodbye Blue Monday, recorded with the help of Hawksley Workman and featuring the song “Cigarette”, is scheduled for release at the end of March.

Tomi’s beautiful voice and lilting melodies sometimes belay the dark subject matter in many of the songs. In the fall of 2006 Tomi came to the offices of Warner Musi... more info
