BIOGRAPHY

Young Tom Allen

I was born in Montreal and went to school there, at Marianapolis College and McGill, before finishing degrees at Boston University and Yale. I worked as a bass trombonist in New York City when there were still places you just didn’t go, in Toronto, and on tour with the Great Lakes Brass. I began working for the CBC on my 30th birthday, a very long time ago, and at the time of writing I still am. I have since written three books, with a fourth on the way, become a Resident Artist with Soulpepper Theatre and hosted many spectacular concerts there, and written a series of cabaret storytelling shows we call Chamber Musicals, including Bohemians in Brooklyn, The Judgment of Paris and From Weimar to Vaudeville, The Last Curlew and The Missing Pages.

I live in Toronto with my beloved, the harpist Lori Gemmell, our son, and a very enthusiastic dog.
