TOM CHAPPELL

Tom Chappell (aka TN’T Trish N’ Tom) is a musician, singer, songwriter and producer based in the New York City metro area. Tom spent his early years as a drummer in various local bands. He went on to form the indie soul duo TN’T(Trish N’ Tom). Though his roots run deep in southern soul, R&B and gospel music, his musical influences cross many genres. Rock, jazz, house, hip hop and country western have all help shape who he is as an artist and musician.

Tom along with his soul mate Trish began making noise on the local New York City indie soul scene in 2003. They went on to record three LPs, “Sweet Like Honey”, “Something Good”, “Don’t Let Go” and various singles in between. Their live performances took them up and down the east coast of the U.S. across the Atlantic Ocean to the UK, as well as many local clubs all the way up until Trish was diagnosed with brain cancer (GBM). Trish eventually lost her battle with the disease.

Toms’ music has been described as “mind expanding soul”. This perhaps is because of three essential components he includes in his music, those being, substance, soul, and it has to be funky. Tom is most known for his work with TN’T, but he has also worked extensively with notable songwriters and producers Kenton Nix and Johnny Ray Reid. Currently Tom is preparing the release of his new video “Pray” directed by Joe James and recording new music coming in 2018. Tom is also composing and working with director Joseph H. James Jr., along with Gil Small,  Robin Small, Randy Wilson, Martin Caba and Monet on a Broadway bound musical.
