Tommy Odetto first got the chills from music as a little boy when he came across Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, and The Beatles. As Tommy approached his teens, he discovered guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. Deeply inspired, he picked up the guitar and never looked back. A few years later, he was a semi-finalist for Guitar Center’s King of the Blues. He has also been featured in Guitar Player magazine as an Artist-Watch. After two successful stints with local bands, in 2016 he decided to pursue his dream of being a front-man.
Since then Tommy has been fortunate to be invited to perform at last year’s Bottlerock Napa Valley and the Harley-Davidson 116th Milwaukee Rally, and has opened for bands like, Cheap Trick, Foreigner, Marshall Tucker Band, Chevy Metal, Tommy Castro, Coco Montoya, Y&T, Walter Trout, Uriah Heep, Ace Frehley, Trainwreck with Kyle Gass (Tenacious D), Ana Popovic, Marshall Tucker Band and Robin Trower to name a few. In 2018, Tommy is tapped to open for Foreigner, will be touring for 7 dates with British Blues Legend John Mayall and will be performing in Milwaukee at one of motorcycle enthusiasts biggest event. He is also a regular fill-in for Big Brother and the Holding Company.
His most recent project, Curses and Revelations, is an unapologetic Rock and Roll record with themes of love lost, depression, addiction, recovery, self-discovery, and redemption. Five original melodic hard rock songs that highlight his raw, honest lyrics and peel back the curtain of the heart and mind of Odetto. Curses and Revelations features many standout guitar moments that are so passionate and soulful that it’s as if we are witness to a musical truth serum. Recorded at Studio 606 and produced by John Lousteau and Ethan Turner, this new work touches on everything Odetto loves: Hard Rock, Blues, a 60's Pop mentality, with a Grunge era swagger.
