Tommy&Company also known as Tommy Bogo is an artist/fashion designer born and raised in Oakland, CA--currently living in San Francisco. Tommy has most notably been recognized as a young owner and designer for the brand, Tombogo. For years, he kept his involvement with music quiet, acting as the creative director for other artist’s projects. What many did not know was that ever since a young age, Tommy has been musically inclined, playing saxophone from 3rd grade and all through high school-- producing beats starting in 2012.
Recently,Tommy teamed up with artist and producer BaseHunt (fellow Bay Area musician, Elujay’s older brother) and initiated a producer group called &Company. As the two began to make music as a team, Tommy simultaneously began to develop a sound of his own. Shortly after this progress, Tommy crafted the song “Get Around”, which will lead up top Tommy&Company's forthcoming EP/Album titled "GPS".
The name Tommy&Company, originates from the culture and identity that Tommy Bogo found when establishing a well renowned Bay Area clothing company, Tombogo. Accrediting his brand as a big factor in finding of his identity as a young man, Tommy decided to reflect this significance through his artist name, Tommy&Company.
The record entitled, “Get Around” by Tommy&Company captures the feeling of embracement for the ups and downs, complications, as well as freedom of being in a relationship without commitment.
With this track serving as Tommy's debut single as an artist, his sole intention is to use music as a new voice of expression that will give his audience a feel for his life and story beyond his reputation as a fashion designer. It's usually a difficult process to enter into new realms of artistry because of the way people perceive you--folks may be taken by surprise to hear melodies and vocals coming from a fashion designer.
Nevertheless, Tommy&Company is here to bridge the gap of music and fashion. The two art forms have always gone hand-in-hand, so this Fashion Designer turned Musician shouldn't have a hard time expressing himself through sound rather than image.
Listen below for his latest release, "Get Around" and stay tuned for his debut project, "GPS".
