Tom Morris began playing guitar in bands during Junior High School, so it was only logical that when he went to college he studied Chemical Engineering. Actually, it was the highest paying career out of college at the time, and Morris knew that he’d need money to pursue his dream of having his own recording studio – which is how in 1981 Tom and Jim Morris (with help from friends and family) came to start Morrisound Recording in Tampa, FL.
Since then Tom has produced and engineered multiple Gold and Platinum records, along with several Grammy nominated albums and worked with a wide range of artists including Seven Mary Three, Beyonce, John Travolta, Chuck Owen, Steve Morse, Morbid Angel, Iced Earth and many more.
Tom has also been active as one of the founding board members for the Florida Chapter of the Recording Academy (the Grammy people), serving as Chapter Trustee, President and Vice-President. Morris has been instrumental in bringing high quality professional workshops and seminars to musicians across Florida.
