T.S. can trace his creative roots back to his quiet Amish upbringing in rural Indiana. Some of his earliest memories include whistling to the rhythm of the scythe whilst harvesting wheat. He was, in fact, among the first wave of Amish pioneers in rock and roll, now commonly known as the “Amish Invasion”. His first group, “Ezekiel and the All Stars”, was awarded the coveted Wood Record for their smash hit “Cast Off ye Dancing Boots”. T.S. was eventually cast out of the band himself when Ezekiel caught him using an electric blender to make Margaritas.
T.S then formed the legendary Amish power trio “Horse ‘n Buggy Blues Band” and found success playing many venues including “Jebidiah’s Black Clothing Outlet” and “The Amish Furniture Gallery”. Once again T.S was ostracized from the group when he was found to be using a refrigerator to keep his beer cold.
A boat wreck during an ill-fated trip to New York led to meeting some like-minded misfits with whom he eventually formed the band Plan B. These days T.S. can be found writing books and jamming with “Plan B” as well as using many different electrical appliances.
