Thom Flowers is a music producer, mixer and composer based in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles, California.
In the late 1980’s and 1990’s, Thom was active as a guitarist and songwriter in the Southern California music scene. Drawn to the creative and technical aspects of the studio, he soon found himself making his living as an engineer and producer.
In the mid-1990’s and the early 2000’s as a house engineer / producer at Santa Barbara, California’s Orangewhip Studios, Thom honed his skills while working with some of the area’s most successful bands, including Toad the Wet Sprocket, The Ataris, Lagwagon, Sugarcult, Nerf Herder, Summercamp and The Mad Caddies. During this time, he also made three full length albums as a contributing member of Bad Astronaut, a project featuring Lagwagon front man Joey Cape and an all-star line-up of Santa Barbara musicians that maintains a strong cult following to this day.
From the early 2000’s to the present, Thom has been busy as an independent producer and mixer with credits including The Ataris, Lagwagon, Jon McKeil, Jesse Thomas, and The Young Romans. Recently, Thom mixed Ninja Sex Party's "Cool Patrol" ( Billboard’s #1 Comedy Album and #2 Rock Album as well as the #1 Rock Album on iTunes sales charts on the week of it’s release ), helped put finishing touches on Shadow Party's self produced debut for Mute Records and Co-Produced Steve Perry's long awaited return album "Traces" on Fantasy Records.
In 2007, Thom co-founded Standard Audio with friend and fellow engineer / producer Ian MacGregor. Together, they’ve developed several pro audio products including the “Level-Or” and “Stretch” which have become recording studio staples and are used by top engineers and producers around the world.
As a songwriter and composer, Thom has a growing list of film and television credits as well as ad campaigns with Ecco, Budweiser and Subaru.
