Tom Metropoulos

Radius Funk

With passion for the drums, Tom Metropoulos lays down his very own brand of rhythm. Citing his influences as Jeff Porcaro, Vinnie Colauita and Simon Phillips its easy to understand why his style of drumming captures the soul and groove of any jam. All the while, Tom maintains a sense of humor and a positive perspective about life, the industry and music. Grown up in the Bay Area, Tom developed an early sense of style while having played with a plethora of bands from the young age of 11. Being influenced by some of the great drummers of the 70s, John Bonham and Mitch Mitchell, this created the foundation of Tom's technique and skill. Having worked with bands like Toto, Bruce Hornsby and Richard Marx in the studio and live, Tom finds himself pursuing other passions which include teaching the drums to all ages out of his private studios in the Peninsula/Bay Area. Toms focus is on innovative grooves that support the song and he has relentless passion for songwriting and artistic originality in drumming.
