Tom Maroon is a Boston-based songwriter, guitarist, and pianist. Growing up outside of Pittsburgh, he began taking piano lessons at age six before switching to guitar a few years later (upon discovering The White Stripes!). He developed a strong background in contemporary styles of music like pop, rock, and R&B. Fusing those influences into original compositions, Tom began performing as a singer-songwriter in high school and went on to study songwriting at Berklee College of Music. Since graduating magna cum laude with a degree in music, he has continued to perform as a solo artist and work with a number of local bands, including rock band Red Right Hand and electronic band This Bliss. He even returned to the piano as the keyboardist for This Bliss! Tom also hosts a weekly radio program in Cambridge, "The Feedback with Tom Maroon," on which he reviews and discusses new local music. When he's in the Pittsburgh area, he volunteers as a camp counselor and music instructor at the Woodlands Foundation. There, in July 2016, Tom created and taught a course on songwriting to adults with disability and chronic illness. Tom has been teaching since 2015 and teaches guitar and ukulele for Note-worthy Experiences, where he has taught since April 2017.
Outside of music, Tom enjoys hiking and most things comedy-related. He's also a passionate hockey fan!
