Bio

Tommy Guerrero is known by many people from various walks of life but that’s probably because Tommy is a man of many facets. He first entered the public eye as a pro skateboarder for Powell Peralta, where he was a member of the legendary Bones Brigade. He came into prominence as an entrepreneur, when he started REAL with fellow pro Jim Thiebaud, but Tommy really surprised the world with his musical prowess. Guerrero’s previous albums - Loose Grooves and Bastard Blues, and A Little Bit of Somethin’, have both become must-have releases. Upon its release in 2000, the latter was described as "a super-horizontal, wiped-out slab of lo-fidelity instrumental rock" by The Face, with Jockey Slut claiming, "Tommy excels with his soulfully melodic, acoustic lo-fi folk fables." More recently, Tommy’s Another Late Night mix (on the Azuli label) has raised awareness, and subsequently won over more fans, with Esquire Magazine pointing out "don't worry if you haven't got a clue who Tommy Guerrero is...simply accept that he has excellent taste. This is simmering."
