Tom Sanderson - Keyboards - Vocals
Tom grew up singing from an early age, and started piano lessons at 8. Many musical adventures followed… singing and playing in church, playing piano for congregational singing by age 10, and tenor vocals in a southern gospel quartet during high school. Ironically, he grew up in a church environment that was rather tentative about heavy Christian music, so anything heavier than Michael W. Smith and The Cathedrals had to be listened to by sneaking it past his parents. The artists listened to covertly throughout high school, which cemented his love of heavy Christian music, included: Tourniquet, Bride, DeGarmo & Key, Deliverance, Guardian, Stryper, Ken Tamplin, Whiteheart, the original and still undisputed kings of Christian rock – Petra, and yes, Sacred Warrior. Things continued at Cedarville University with a minor in Music, which involved (among other things) a year of pipe organ lessons, two more years of piano lessons, advanced music transcription, orchestration, vocal ensembles, music theory, and advanced listening skills. He continued to enjoy heavy Christian music… again, under the radar of a rather strict conservative Christian college environment. 🙂
