1920s Time Period. Two Men sit down at a table to discuss business as well as rubbing out their competition along with a woman.
Thomas Panazzolo, or as he is known by his peers in the music industry as Tommie Sox, was fascinated by music from an early age. A precocious, young musician, he began teaching himself to play a variety of instruments beginning at the age of only 8. While he has the ability to play an assortment of instruments including guitar, piano, and bass, it is the drums with which he was professionally trained, and has always maintained a passion for. As an adolescent, he was accepted into a world renowned band that took Tommie all over the nation, including New Orleans, Canada, Washington DC, and Alaska, and also provided Thomas with the unique opportunity to perform for both the Pentagon, and the United Nations. For college, Thomas enrolled and was eventually accepted into a competitive Music Production Program at SUNY Purchase. The rigorous curriculum provided Thomas with the tools necessary to hone his skills and perfect his craft. He graduated with the knowledge of not only how to be a successful musician, but also an accredited producer and studio engineer. These skills have served him well, as he went on to found his own recording studio before even his 20th birthday. Empire State Studios, housed in Thomas' birthplace of Brooklyn, struck ground just before Thomas graduated from college, and has since become home to a multitude of recording artists in the music industry, ranging from established acts like hip-hop icon Melle Mel, and Boot Camp Click member, Steele (from Smif N Wessun), and exciting newcomers like Mims; to R&B crooners such as Chico DeBarge, and a host of other notable performers, as well, including members of the late Big Pun's group, Terror Squad. Tommie is currently studying acting with Acting Coach Anthony Abeson.
