何にも縛られることなく自由に自己を表現し、演奏する事を愛して止まないトムタチ。彼らの奏でる音はとてもアツい。トムは西日本に拠点を移し、幸運にも福岡でピアニスト、立花洋一(タチ)に出逢う。トムのベースは時に他のミュージシャンを威圧してしまうほどノンストップであったが、タチは伴奏者の境界を越える事を厭わず、自身の熱狂的な演奏スタイルに共鳴できるベーシストと出逢えた事が更にパワーとなった。そう、彼らは多くの音を紡いでいく。それは演奏できるからではなく、彼らに音楽が聴こえてくるからである。トムタチはストレートに心から音を奏でる。彼らは演奏を楽しみ、また聴く人々はエキサイティングな音楽を体験できるだろう。主にボーカリストやリードプレーヤーと共に演奏をしている。
