Tom Fiore is from S. Euclid and now resides in Willowick, OH. He has been playing guitar since he was 8 years old, but not seriously until the age of 16. He took lessons for the first eight years but only because his father was always pressuring him to. His favorite instructors were Tony Martin and Jeff Nagel. He has played with a lot of bands since he was 15, which is how old he was when he played his first gig in the flats. He also plays in an original band from Hinckley called “Hollywood and Vine” and an original band that he does all the writing and vocals for called “Gauge”.
