Tom Panei, lead singer, acoustic guitarist, and co-founder of Mind's I has been active on the regional music scene for over two decades. Tom is the principal songwriter for the band, which evolved from The Weasels, a band he had formed with longtime friend and local coffee and candy magnate Barry Cummings, original Mind's I drummer Chris Compton, and current Mind's I bass player Scott Herbst.
In addition to performing with Mind's I, Tom plays scores of solo acoustic shows across the region (and into Canada) every year. He is also an accomplished visual artist, with his work featured prominently in stores and on signage in his hometown of Butler, PA. His visual artwork is the primary focus of his personal web site. Many of Tom's works have been incorporated into the album art for the band. The first three studio releases, Where the Secret Lies, Fearless of Ever, and Mighty Shoves and Tiny Pushes all feature Tom's artwork.
When he's not busy creating artwork or playing music, Tom enjoys fishing and riding his Harley Davidson. He is also active in civic affairs, currently serving as President of the Butler Downtown organization.
