Bio

Yes, Tommie is her real birth name–after her grandfather Thomas…

Born into a military family just outside Houston, Texas in the 60’s. One of five siblings, but was raised–along with her older brother– by her mom’s family mostly in Columbus, Ohio.

AUG 2014By the age of 7, she was already playing the organ by ear, helping her mom rehearse her church solos, and perfoming in the Childrens Choir. The love for performing only became stronger during the teenage years, cheer leading for 4 years in High School, while dabbling in music and The Children’s Theater group.  She then attended Ohio University, taking electives in Music Theory and Theatre, where wanting to be an entertainer became her new dream.  With no serious formal training–and instead of graduating and taking over the family child care business–she decided to hit the road with countless bands as a stage performer. This led her to joining the all-female group EVE, where she received her first national recording contract with The Music Store/Ichiban Records.

Since leaving the business in the 90’s to raise her son (and career detour, during battling Stage III Breast Cancer in ’03-’04), she has performed and recorded with countless bands and artists in her town of Columbus, Ohio.  In 2012 she stopped answering the musician want-ads to work just as a ‘hired gun’, of just singing whatever-wherever as income.  It was then she realized that ‘what’ she sang and how she ‘felt’ about the music, was more important than the money paid to do it. This new paradigm set her back on the road to original songwriting, and pursing labels to release her songs.

OCT 2013Her immediate goals in music are to nurture and inspire others–by composing and performing songs about life lessons that we all share. Presently, she is focused on making original productions and mashup/remix covers–in her home studio–collaborating with partner, Producer OskiDJ of Barcelona, and the Unique2Rhythm UK label. Her bigger longterm goals are to perform/tour internationally, plus to create and/or manage other Artists–by building her own entertainment label from revenue in songwriting endeavors.

Tommie’s VOCAL musical influences include all the greats of the “oleskool vinyl era” such as Aretha Franklin, Loletta Holloway, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Gladys Knight, Jennifer Holiday, Donna Summer, and Martha Wash–but still gives credit to Barbara Streisand, Bette Midler, Cheryl Lynn and Joyce ‘Baby Jean’ Kennedy as the beginning inspirations for her wanting to be a performer.

“I’ve always admired vocalists who give you everything they have. Where you can hear the pain, challenges or triumphs come out in their interpretation of the lyrics. Not holding back passion in a cry or scream, for the sake of making their sound glossy and perfect for radio.”

JULY 2014Her current favorites are a roster of some of the best vocalists from the U.K., such as Joss Stone, Annie Lennox, Alison Moyet and Katherine Ellis. Her American favorites include the sounds of Concrete Blonde, Heart, and Mothers Finest as well as guitar-mamas Melissa Etheridge, Sheryl Crow, Sass Jordan and Joan Osborne. With regards to her own talents, she uses the slogan “Everything from A to Z: Aretha to Zeppelin”. This is why each time you hear her voice, you will receive a new experience.

About Ashley
Ashley Slater  is a UK-based trombone player and best known for his work with Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim) in the band Freak Power.[1] He was born in Schefferville, Canada in 1961. At the age of about 6 months, Ashley and his parents moved to Hanford, California.

In 1977, he moved to Edinburgh, Scotland on his own, and there joined the regimental band of the 1st battalion the Royal Scots as a bass trombonist. He also got his first taste of minor stardom whilst standing in for the lead singer of Northern Irish R&B band Otis and the Elevators.

1043918_10151739411171322_1085929168_nIn 1983 after leaving the army, he attended the National Centre for Orchestral Studies, after which he joined the jazz orchestral collective Loose Tubes.[2] Over the next few years he was the bass and tenor trombonist of choice for the likes of George Russell, Carla Bley, Andrew Poppy, El Sonido de Londres, Billy Jenkins, Django Batesand Andy Sheppard. During this time he also worked as a session musician recording and arranging for The The, Fairground Attraction, Julia Fordham and the Rolling Stones.

After a gig at Ronnie Scott’s jazz club in London with Loose Tubes, Slater was approached by Rob Partridge, the then head of the Antilles Label on Island Records. At this time Ashley and a fellow loose tuber, John Eacott had also been singing and writing songs for their funk band project called Microgroove. Their USP was an electric tuba played by Oren Marshall. They released one album called The Human Groove in 1988.

In 1993, shortly after Norman Cook, a.k.a. Fatboy Slim, had remixed one of Microgroove’s tunes, (“Walkin'”) they teamed up to form Freakpower and went on to have a top three hit single in the UK with “Turn On, Tune In, Cop Out”. Freakpower released two albums, Drive Thru Booty and More of Everything for Everybody, also on Island records. As Cook’s Fatboy career took off, Slater also went his own way and released music through Skint under the alias Dr. Bone. He also contributed vocals to and topline EDP’s Sweet Music.

10848042_10153250841421322_2902013149013447592_nHe has also recorded with Dimitri from Paris and Rui da Silva and has contributed vocals to Fatboy Slim’s albums, and Krafty Kuts. After a break of about five years from playing the trombone Slater was lured back by Gary Crosby from the Jazz Jamaica All Stars. Since then he has toured with Sam Rivers, Hermeto Pascoal, Roy Nathanson’s Jazz Passengers, Hugh Masekela, Dub Pistols and his own band BigLounge. He also recently appeared with Elvis Costello and Debbie Harry at the London Jazz Festival.

In 2011, Slater formed an electro-Swing act called Kitten & The Hip, featuring his partner Scarlett Quinn on lead vocals. Kitten & The Hip featured in the auditions for The X Factor 2014. The judges decided to unanimously vote Scarlett through as an independent contestant, and she got as far as boot camp.
