Her 2016 critically acclaimed A Million Miles marked the first time Tiffany had been a co-producer on her own record.

About Tom Vrem "aka" Guitar Foodie:
Tom began playing the guitar at the age of 5 after shaking Kenny Rogers hand at a live concert. His first concert he attended was Johnny Cash. He was raised by two hard working parents that grew up on Dakota farms. He was born in Minnesota, raised in Illinois, and now resides in Nashville, TN. Tom has had an extraordinaire life in music. He began playing out professionally at the age of 16. Has played guitar in every state. He has toured with ZZ Top as a road manager for Tim Montana on a world tour, played live shows in 23 countries, engineered and produced albums out of some of the best studios in the world, written guitar books as well as cookbooks ( currently writing a Guitar Foodie cookbook with Tiffany of 80s fame). Tom began producing and engineering out of Blackbird Studio in 2014 after graduating from The Blackbird Academy. Tom interned at Blackbird while Chris Stapleton’s Traveler was being mixed in Studio A. Tom has written, produced, and recorded songs that have millions of plays on Spotify as well as songs that have aired on regular rotation on CMT. He has helped record countless mainstream artists at Blackbird including, Tiffany, Kid Rock, Hank Jr., Sam Williams, Amos Lee, Buddy Guy, just to name a few. Blackbird Studio 1 Tom Vrem “aka” Guitar Foodie is owned by John and Martina McBride. Being based out of Blackbird has put Tom in the epicenter of the Nashville music scene. One of the effects of that was in the fall of 2015 Sam Williams, Hank Jr’s youngest son and grandson of Hank Williams Sr. moved right next door to Tom. They immediately became close friends. Tom ushered Sam into songwriting and the two began playing live shows in 2016. Sam released his first single “Darkwater” that was written by Tom 10 years earlier. The release was Sam’s debut to the world that he was following his families musical tradition. Tom produced and recorded the first song that Sam wrote with Tom “Lost Grandchild’s Plea” which video debuted on CMT top 10 in 2017. Since then Tom has been producing and recording some of the best up and coming Americana and Country artists in Nashville. Even during the Pandemic Tom toured 9 states having Nashville style writers rounds with artists he has recorded. Tom is a consistent songwriter that has thousands of songs under his belt. Tom has currently been recording his own EP with some of the best session players in Nashville. 5 time grammy winner Roy Wooten [Roy and Tom both played in Planeless Pilots} and multi-platinum selling artist Tiffany also add their touches throughout the EP. Late in 2020 Tom met Harry Waters, son of Roger Waters of Pink Floyd fame. Immediately the two of them began working on tunes and the first one ‘Stranded” will be released June 28th of this year. Then Tom will begin his ‘Stranded Tour” that already has shows booked from Florida to Alaska. Tom’s love of music and deep knowledge of the industry in Music City keep him relevant in these ever changing days. Catch him cheffing it up Guitar Foodie style as well. He is a true Foodie and it shows! He does private dinner parties that will tantalize your taste buds too. Bar and restaurant takeovers are a angle that Tom learned fromTiffany. When live shows ended in 2020, Tiffany was left stranded and stayed at Tom’s home studio fro quarantine and brainstormed on ideas. She came up with a concept where she takes an ongoing menu item and adds a twist to add some of her Foodie love to the food. She also provides a drink menu to pair with food and some appetizer and entrees. Tom loved the idea and is also doing Guitar Foodie takeover nights using her method.
