Tommygirl landed her first residency at club Whanga Rhei called Bad Attitude and has played parties Flux @ Anu, Freeform @ Asia SF, Funkin Fridays/Sessions and Squeeze @ Aura, MD Presents @ Fat Cat Music House, Pee Wee Muldoons, Zendo, Release, Club Whisper, She has shared the decks with Djs Atimatik, Rob Bishop, Shey Love, Brian Williams, David Savior, Terry Mullen, Teddy C, Pat Allen, Kyle Chase, Audio Distortion, Eddie Santana, Frankie Jr. and Billy Casazza to name a few. Tommygirl played live on-air with Evan Alexander on PRARadio.com out of Portland Oregan earlier this year and began getting her name out. Summer 2007 marked her 3rd performance for some 15,000 people attending Chris Ricci’s infamous X-Fest! Headlining the event were artists Dj Dan, Blue October, and Digital Underground, among others.
Owning her Salon “A Perfect 10” for 8 years now has carried her interests and creativity to the fashion and entertainment industries. It’s no surprise this L.A. born artist is the youngest of four girls all of whom share strong musical backgrounds, passion for classical sounds, and love of dance. With ongoing tap, ballet, figureskating, and music lessons, she had mastered 8 different instruments fluently before entering high school. This gave her the honor of performing for the Queen of England, & filming a breakdance performance for a Mervyn’s commercial. So fittingly her home town of Ceres CA elected her Miss Congeniality during her Senior Year. Figure Skating competitively was her main priority until she was 23 years old. She then went on to become a dancer for the Sacramento Kings Royal Court.
In the year 2000, Tommygirl was heavily influenced by satellite radios new house sounds. She was compelled by the music of her inspirational male counterparts, “to touch the vinyl”. Unfamiliar with the tracks she pulled, the beatmatching was instantaneous. Three months later she performed with the boys at X-Fest and it was then that this “girl” with raw but pure mixing talent was a crowd favorite. Incorporating not one style but different styles of HOUSE that blends well, only ceases to amaze people. She has nailed the true art form of skilled mixing.
Tommygirls’ most exciting moment to date.
When Ellen Degeneres announced her Dj was leaving the show, she gave a hint on air stating “Mama loves house.” Although having hired another Dj, the Celebrity/Producer Degeneres took notice of Tommygirls video audition concluding in a letter that “the WB would like you to keep in touch.”
“Go original, or dont go at all!”
According to Tommy Hilfiger, “Tommygirl reflects the American woman and her spirited attitude.” He adds, “She’s independent, secure, very aware and fun.”
