Tom Licon’s special connection to his daughter Tomi, began at infancy. He could see in her eyes she was gifted, dynamic and a child with a sharp sense of humor. Tom, a father of 11, that’s right…11! says all of his kids, with the exception of one, are musically inclined. Tomi represents the third family collaboration and they perform every Saturday and every other Sunday at the coveted corner of Forest Ave. and Coast Hwy.

At the ripe ol’ age of 11 Tomi has been playing half her life. She learned ukulele at 6 and quickly had her sights on America’s Got Talent! Tom is a musician to his core. He schooled her on scales before chords and they’ve fine-tuned original songs like “Peanut Butter and Classical Jam”, “Simple Song” and “Broken String” as well as covers like “Low Budget” by The Kinks, “The Wait” by The Band and Johnny Horton’s spirited “Battle of New Orleans”. As the soloist, Tomi’s Spanish Requinto guitar strums a higher pitch than a traditional guitar and the small size instrument fits her to a T.

Tom compares their duo to a Mariachi Instrumentation of Classical Rock. Working so closely with your father isn’t always harmonious. Tomi’s main complaint is that her dad often repeats stuff, however his straightforward manner of speaking ie: “Get it through your thick head!” is always met with a laugh. For Tom, nothing brings more joy than harmonizing with the one you love.

Busking around the world and recording videos for LiveMe.com are definite goals for the future but right now they’re focused on promoting their soon to be released CD of originals and covers.
