Born in Szolnok, Hungary, Tomisheep is a Montreal based classically trained pianist/keyboardist, composer, arranger and sound designer. He works predominantly in the areas of studio and commercial music, in addition to a variety of popular, rock, hip hop and classical music projects.
He is a graduate of the Bartok Béla Zeneiskola (Béla Bartok Music Academy) in Hungary. Tomisheep arrived in Montreal in 2005, and has since been the in-house musical director at Air M.S. Media. Rhodes Trip was inspired by Tomisheep’s purchase of a vintage Fender Rhodes piano, an instrument whose historical and recognizable sound can be heard on legendary recordings such as The Beatles' Let It Be, on Stevie Wonder's You Are The Sunshine of My Life, and on recordings by legendary jazz musicians Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Joe Zawinul and Herbie Hancock....

- Rhodes Trip by Chris M. Slawecki
“Backed up by wah-wah sounds, amplified trumpet and rhythmic details inherited from the unsurpassable Weather Report, everything on this album is set to conjugate the past into the present.” Journal de Montréal
“…for a good dose of groovy jazz and funk, it’s perfect. The musicians are having fun, that’s obvious and shines throughout the album.” Voir
”I can feel the love Tomisheep has for his Rhodes. This is jazz that you can get down to.” Lauren Burrows, CBC Radio
