A-Frame initially began as a single man band with it's only member being Tommy Gibbons of Phoenix, Arizona. Tommy Gibbons has been making headlines and winning awards for his guitar abilities since the tender age of 13 years old including Guitar Center Guitargeddon Best West Region Guitarist 2003 and 2004, Phoenix College Louis Armstrong Jazz best soloist award 2012, and LA Music Awards best Rock Guitarist 2014 to name a few. Tommy's musical skills are not limited to guitar as he also plays bass, drums, banjo, violin/fiddle and other instruments, and is an accomplished singer/songwriter as well as being a seasoned music engineer and producer in his fully equipped professional studio Kompund music studio located in Litchfield Park, AZ. Tommy Gibbons is currently or has been endorsed/sponsored by: KRANK Amps, Revolution amps, Uno Guitars, KXK Guitars, Swiss picks, Homebrew Electronics, Pipeline Audio and Acme Bargig. In the 11 years Tommy has been a musician he has toured throughout the country with bands he has been in, opened for numerous national acts such as Queensryche and more all before being of legal age to vote.
The band name A-Frame came about when Tommy's manager (also Scott's manager), Crystal Nonya of Nonya Entertainment, introduced him to an unbelieveably talented, yet undiscovered singer/lyracist, Scott Benedict, (an A-Frame backpack is made of 3 adjoining pieces of wood in an "A" shape for stability...). Scott was originally set to be a feature voice on one track only, however, Scott's vocal/lyrical abilities impressed Tommy so much that Scott was asked to become a permanent part of the project. Since the band consisted of Tommy, Scott and "Nonya" as the foundation for the first 6 months, the name A-Frame seemed fitting, with a bit of tongue-in-cheek inside humor included. Between Tommy and Scott, the first 13 songs from A-Frame were composed, recorded and mastered within 4 months time. Zane Storto was then added as a 10 year veteran bass player with his stunning abilities, excellent work ethic and great attitude he displayed during his auditions. Zane then went into the studio and re-recorded all of the bass parts adding his own flavor to the songs. The drummer position remains open for possible live performances in the future.
