Call my name (Radio edit) - Tomas Reinerson (2016)
"Call my name" is my first release as Tomas Reinerson
After the tragic passing of my wife Simone in summer 2015, after a two years struggle against cancer. I wasn't sure whether I would be able to get back to composing or even playing again.
However with fanatastic support from both mine and Simones family as well as from friends, I feel more determined than ever to realize my dream of recording and releasing my songs under my own name. From now and onwards I will release one Single or EP per month except for during the summer months.
Peter Derenius - Drum programming
Hellmut Wolf - Mix and mastering

TR Photosession Oct 27 2014
Photosession with photographer Christer Larsson. These photo's has been laying around for some time now since it was really hard to choose a limited number of them.
I realized that I didn't have any solo photographies to use, so I asked Christer if he'd be willing to shoot a few with me. Instead of shooting in a studio we found some really great surroundings in Krokslätts Fabriker. I think that the shots turned out quite well...
Somewhere in heaven - Francie Conway / Christy Dignam (2015)

Christy Dignam - Aslan
Finbar Furey - The Fureys

Tomas Reinerson - Milky way is burning
Actually the first video released under my own name.This is my rendition of a song I heard in the late 70's early 80's. Since then I've been using it as material when teaching bass. Some years ago one of my students told me that I should record it and publish it and finally here it is...
Broken shoes - Francie Conway (e-single 2014)
In fall 2013 my friend Francie Conway approached me if I wanted to put some bass on a cover version he had made of Cornelis Vreeswijk's classical song "Somliga går med trasiga skor" even at an early stage I found that I loved his version and send back 5 different bass takes. Little did I know that I was going to be on the same recordings as one of my first idols - Jan Akkerman of Focus. The intro guitar riff of Syliva was one of, if not the first, rockriffs I ever learned on guitar.
I'm extremely proud to be credited among these fine musicians Jan Akkerman (NL) Guitar, Vivienne Boucherat (UK) Backing Vocals, Siard De Jong (NL) Violin, Matt Kelleghan (IRL) Drums, Peter Lundgren (S) Percussion, Tomas Reinerson (S) Bass Guitar, Dom Torche (CH) Hammond Organ, Chris White (UK) Backing Vocal Arrangement.

KiwiMusic becomes Tomas Reinerson Music
After a very long time I've decided to change artist name from Kiwi to my actual name Tomas Reinerson. The reason is that there simply are too many artists/bands calling themselves Kiwi (over 12 who has published themselves on CD).
The future plan is to re-release my old album Kiwi - Dreamland Stories under Tomas Reinerson and to follow up with a brand new album hopefully towards the end 2014 and also gather a live band to do some concerts (initally locally in Sweden)...
