Dr. Tom's Alchemy

With a malleability and tone concocted from the melting pot of improvisational rock, Dr. Tom’s Alchemy blends a range of musical styles and influences, including southern rock, bluegrass, funk, swing, and folk. With a tip of the hat to the lingering leads of the late Michael Houser (Widespread Panic), a nod to the creative looping of Keller Williams, a love for the beauty, honesty and power of Glen Hansard's songwriting, and aspirations to the hard-hitting social justice lyrics of Michael Franti, Dan Bern, Bob Dylan, and the Guthries, Tom Archie strives for a groove with songwriting that brings up the grass by its roots. He uses a custom Boice Box pedal board with looping pedal for live overdubs, a voice at times melodic and sometimes nearly growling, a 1937 Gibson L7 archtop guitar, harmony vocals, percussion, and didgeridoo.
