Tom was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts, the eldest of jazz musician Tony Pacheco’s nine children. Tutored by his father at age 10 on classical and jazz guitar, it wasn’t long before Tom fell under the spell of Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan. At the age of 18 Tom found himself in Greenwich Village playing coffeehouses and recording with various musicians. Since then, he has lived in Nashville, Tennessee, Austin, Texas, and Dublin, Ireland.
His songs have been covered by Jefferson Starship, the Band, Rick Danko, Richie Havens, and dozens of European artists.
Tom currently lives in Woodstock, NY and loves performing for live audiences. He considers everyone “a friend I have never met”
