Thomas Graff- Biography
"With understanding and maturity for music beyond his own years, Thomas Graff, has intricately woven his Pop/Rock influenced sound through the Chicagoland nightlife scene since he was 13 years old. Discovered at a talent show, Graff was invited to perform with an established cover band called "The Affects." The band, comprised of 40 something year-olds, hired Graff as lead saxophone player and singer at his young age of 13. Graff racked up an impressive repertoire of 250 + songs and over 325 performances with the band. While in college, he built his own performance group and became a featured artist at Northern Illinois University, the Watertower Place in Chicago, the Rouge Wine Cellar, and began recording and then released his first album titled "Caroling Cousins" which features his 2 sisters and 5 cousins who used the album to raise money for Misericordia (a residency for people who have mental health issues). In 2010, Graff moved to San Diego, CA to pursue a solo career as an artist. After performing at highly celebrated venues such as the House of Blues in Hollywood and the Hotel Del Coronado, he released his first solo album titled "Included Intuition" on iTunes and Amazon.com.
