You probably know him as actor C. Thomas Howell...as the character "Ponyboy" in the movie the Outsiders, where he won the hearts of millions and still does to this day...or maybe as "The Reaper" in the show Criminal Minds, where his dark & twisted character still reeks havoc in the minds of those who watched that storyline unfold.  Tommy Howell is an accomplished actor, writer, director, producer and now adds singer and songwriter to that list. 

On May 28, 2020, while the world was in the middle of a pandemic and in total lock down, Tommy Howell picked up a guitar. Lost in his newly found love of learning to strum, practice instantly turned to passion. His musical journey began simply learning to play his favorite songs by artists like Chris Stapleton, Drake White, and Whiskey Myers. What it turned into was Tommy writing songs that grip your soul and make us remember why we love the stories in and between the songs.  Tommy finds himself writing with some of the most amazing songwriters in the business these days and there's no looking back.

    Take a foundation rooted in rural, rodeo, and dusty roads and add 40
    dynamic years as an actor, writer and producer in Hollywood. Then bring
    everything to a sudden stop with a global pandemic. That’s how Tommy
    Howell found himself connecting his rich story — and, he hopes, all of us —
    through an interactive, personal performance that’s attracted some of
    Nashville’s master musicians and producers. Armed with original songs and
    backed by a band of Broadway vets, Tommy’s bringing “An Evening of Music
    & Storytelling” to cities across the country in his Fall 2022 tour.
    “We need to move forward and be the best we can be as people,” says
    Tommy, from the recording studio in his Nashville home. “I feel like there’s a
    voice there and a place for me to help find some comfort.”
    You likely first met Tommy as actor and leading man “C. Thomas Howell” in
    unforgettable roles like “Ponyboy Curtis” in The Outsiders and “The Reaper”
    in Criminal Minds. From Elizabeth Taylor and Francis Ford Coppola to Steven
    Spielberg and Patrick Swayze to Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, Tommy
    has worked with the best in Hollywood on his journey through more than
    240 credits.
    So when the entertainment business all but shuttered in spring of 2020,
    holed up like the rest of us, Tommy did what he’s done professionally since
    he was 14: He followed his heart, and got to work. With a story in his head
    for a music-related film project, he grabbed a guitar, and started writing
    characters not for the screen, but for his own songs. The shift in artistic
    discipline ignited a “creative awakening” for Tommy, one that sounded,
    sonically, a lot like where his own story started.
    Tommy grew up riding in a Ford Pinto with his bull rider-turned-stuntman
    father — from town to town, rodeo to film set. Often, he’d sleep on the
    floorboard while other cowboys shared a ride to places like Nephi City, Utah,

    or Sisters, Ore. By the time he was 14, Tommy was roping and riding. He
    was on a path to become a stuntman, performing fights and falls and riding
    motorcycles. As a teen, he twice earned California Junior Rodeo Association
    Champion in the All Around Cowboy category, while performing his own
    stunts in films and TV shows. But beginning at 16 in Spielberg’s legendary
    E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Tommy’s blossoming acting career meant leaving
    behind stunts and steers for the better part of four decades.
    It was music that brought the Gen X performer back to his cowboy roots. His
    catchy, character-driven songs feature some of Nashville’s top musical
    players providing the precision muscle to Tommy’s warm, road-worn vocals.
    Combining a Texas thunder heart with mountain music soul, it’s a real,
    comfort-food sound that’s different from anything else happening in
    Nashville. (Some of Tommy’s favorite bands include The Allman Brothers
    Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Marshall Tucker Band.)
    “I really miss that sound, and I think there’s a place for it again,” he says.
    Tommy’s unique ability to draw-in and delight audiences between songs with
    surprising and relatable stories gives him and his traveling show a built-in
    advantage. Whether in seated concert halls or raucous venues, his show
    evolves and changes based both on the audience, and the details of his
    unfolding life and career.
    “When I’m acting, the more personal I can make a moment, the more
    universal it is. It’s the same when writing a song,” he says. “The deeper I go
    into the darker corners of my soul, thinking no one will understand, the
    more I’m heard, the more people relate.”
    From blue collars to red carpets, rural to urban, Tommy’s life has straddled
    seemingly disparate worlds.
    “I’ve spent a lot of time on both sides,” he says. “And I believe I could be a
    bridge."
    Because whether it’s acting, music or rodeo, Tommy says, the goal is always
    the same.

    “As human beings, we all just want to connect,” he says. “I want to connect.
    The audience wants to connect. We’re feeling something together.”
