How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My Influences and style are constantly changing, I grew up listening to a lot of different styles of music but for some reason when I heard Electronic Music I fell in love and decided it would be my passion. I am extremely inspired by musicians that go the extra mile in sound design by creating instruments and sounds we haven't heard yet from the scene, such as Flume, Getter, DROELOE, and Fabian Mazur. Right now up to date I am very into Future Bass and a bit of trap. I am on Soundcloud every day checking to see what's new and fresh because I feel it's pretty important to keep up to date on styles.


What´s new right now?


I don't release music as often as I want to but excitingly enough I just released a remix of ZHU X Ekali's new track Blame with my friend High Zombie. I have a lot of new tunes coming out with him. I am also trying to make vlog's every week so make sure you check out my youtube page as-well if you want a sense of what my personal life is like. I will leave links to my Youtube channel and the new song below.. Hopefully! Also add me on snapchat if you are looking for collaborations! @ tom.woodhour

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?

Once you discovered new music, do you tell others about the new music/artist you discovered? If yes, how exactly?


“I certainly do!! I would most likely do that through snapchat, add me @tom.woodhour or on facebook messenger! Those are my 2 primary ways of communication. On the slight chance I find something on instagram I would send a dm then.

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?


My #1 tip for songwriting skills would be to listen to a ton of music in the same genre that you are creating to gain knowledge and ideas so you can finish. For music production i would suggest online tutorials or youtube tutorials they have really helped me through my journey!

[gravityforms action=”conditional” merge_tag=”Yes” condition=”is” value=”Yes”]
What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?


I would say to let the project sit for a few hours maybe a day or two and then get back to it with a fresh pair of ears and ideas! It's always a good idea to take a break if you are getting stuck in writers block.

I plan to expand my growth within the next 12 months to more countries other-than USA and Europe. When I say that, i mean that i want to have concrete fans and a style that i can say i create! That is the hardest thing for me right now, finding my sound!
