Tom Stewart

Tom was born in Tampa, Florida in 1966. He grew up in Boca Raton, Florida. As a young child he took piano lessons, but switched to guitar as a teenager. After attending the University of Florida, he graduated from Berklee College of Music, cum laude, in 1990. Tom then went to law school, graduating in 1993. He became a civil trial lawyer and successfully practiced for 10 years. Throughout this time, Tom continued to pursue his first love: writing and playing jazz. In 2003, he ultimately decided to leave the law, devoting himself full time to music.

Tom lives in St. Petersburg, Florida with his wife, Sandy. He is busy practicing, writing, performing and recording jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
