Tom Reid was born in Kilkenny, Ireland, the fourth of ten children. He grew up to the sounds of his mother singing and he can’t remember a time he wasn’t singing himself. At age 11, he was sent to a religious boarding school. His experiences there inspired the title song of his album 'Broken Glass'.
