Some of Tom's studio projects include playing harmonica with Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band on the soundtrack to the film "Hoot," and with Kenny Loggins on his latest four CDs, "All Join In," "How About Now," "Blue Sky Riders - Finally Home" and "Why Not?" It's not hard to see why Tom has been on the cover of both American Harmonica Newsmagazine and Harmonica World, why Blues Revue called his playing "stupendous," and why Sound Choice magazine wrote, "The best acoustic blues act going, bar none!" Meanwhile he has carved out a secondary career as a solo guitarist with 4 CDs, and "kills time" writing both music books and fiction. Fretboard Journal recently wrote, "Not fair. Tom Ball is not only one of the world's best harmonica players, he's also an incredible guitarist."
Currently Tom resides in Santa Barbara with his artist wife Laurie, two antique cats and 1000s of 78 RPM records. His daughter Shay is an ex-model, renowned singer and music teacher.
