Tom Abrigan
Tom Abrigan is a 39 year old French artist based in Marseille, France. He started playing music at the age of 12 as a self-taught guitarist.
Influenced by metal music, but also by blues, jazz and many other styles, Tom always tries to make crossovers to get out of the codes we usually see (grunge meets progressive music, classic rock meets newschool styles, etc...).

He has played with bands such as Sonny Red, Really Addictive Sound, Marko Balland and with artists such as Dean Bowman (Screaming Headless Torsos, John Scofield...), Ryan Kilgore (Stevie Wonder), Loic Pontieux (Sixun...), Nicolas Viccaro, André Ceccarelli, etc.

In 2018 Tom Abrigan started his own solo project called Tom Abrigan And The Shrunken Heads. The first 5-title EP was released in October 2018. The band shared the stage with artists like Ron Thal Bumblefoot, The Dead Daisies, Freak Kitchen... This solo project recently became a real band called SUNBEAM OVERDRIVE, working on a single that will be available in fall 2019. 1rst album expected in 2020.


Why Vola ?

My Vola guitar(s)

My Vola Blaze Custom NT from the Japanese Vola Custom Shop is the perfect combination of legacy and modern guitar building. The woodworking is amazing and gives this instrument the fantastic sounds I need for my playing. I get tones you can hear from great vintage guitars and I can play modern stuff because it's a new school guitar style.
Vola Guitars has nailed it!
