Make Music Detroit

2023 Listings: Wednesday, June 21st


From headlining the stages of the Festival Hispanic Americano and Corktown Sounds, to performing at the Talentos Latinos Award Show, TommyPAPI is making waves within Michigan. Tommy is a 24-year-old Afro-Latino artist living in Detroit, and, for the past 6 years, he has been writing songs from hip-hop to RnB to alternative on experimental production and combining the old school sounds with the new. Tommy began recording music in 2019 in pursuit of his passion for music and started sharing it with the world. Since then, he has been genre-bending with influences from his black and Colombian ancestry, while also staying true to Motown and rock n' roll. When asked about his aspirations, Tommy said: "It’s been my dream since I was 12 to be on stage in front of thousands of fans and they sing every word to one of my songs. My goal is to have my music relate to someone during a tough time in their life, and the song brings them solace. A feeling that they’re not alone."
