2013年組成funk樂隊Tri-deuces,2015年起曾為folk/alternative樂隊Stranded Whale的成員,樂隊生涯及曾為職業樂手的背景讓Tomii得以發展他音樂製作及各種樂器演奏的技能。

他的獨奏生涯於稍後開展。時為2016年,他揉合了攝影師Bebebop的作品,在網絡上首先發佈了兩首電子音樂——〈Basement Was Closed〉及〈Elevated To The 20th Floor〉。及後他與視覺藝術家Jasmine Cheung合作,為她的個展編錄了一首歌曲——〈In Between The Woods〉,一首充滿了合成器、鼓樂以及部份即興演奏的音樂。這些作品初步體現出Tomii的音樂略帶有藍調氣息、富節奏感、豐富以及色調頗為深沉的一面。

Tomii於2017年自資、自編、自監、自己設計,推出了風格多樣的首張專輯《Arrays》,以各種聲效與曲風顯出他的多元化。好馬不停蹄,時間只過了半年,2018年中他又再次「自編自導」,推出了重視民謠、鄉謠及藍調曲風的第二張專輯《Not A Good Day To Die》,撇除各重電子聲效,以簡單樂器編制及純樸歌詞發掘出一個四十分鐘的自省空間。他既又簡單而令人印象深刻的歌曲,也有複雜與漸進式的歌曲,多種個性集於一身,隨心演繹。


2020年,Tomii推出了全新EP《Replay》,五首歌曲,情感豐富,將盛載著Tomii當時需要面對他自己的過去、壓抑、自責及人際關係時而浮現的黑暗面。EP封面由Ann Gee Chan所畫,並由香港獨立廠牌Popkisspunk發行卡式帶。

Born in 1992, Tomii Chan is a Hong Kong singer-songwriter. From his first funk band Tri-deuces (2013 – 2016) to the folk/alternative band Stranded Whale (since 2015), the background as a band member and once a pop session guitarist has helped to develop Tomii's skills in music production and guitar playing, as well as other instruments like bass and keyboard.

Tomii released his debut album “Arrays” in August 2017, a compilation-like album showcasing his multi-genres influence. The second album “Not A Good Day To Die” was released in May 2018, emphasising on the styles of folk, blues, and country music. The second album was finished as a mostly DIY effort. Tomii recorded and mixed nearly all tracks for it and published limited copies of 200 CDs under his own label Grand View Records, selling them mostly in live shows.

Tomii Chan did a four stops Taiwan tour in January 2019, and revisited the country again in May playing a solo concert in the renowned Genki CD Shop in the city of Taichung, gaining a few more outside audiences along the way.

In 2020, Tomii has published "Replay", an emotional EP containing Tomii’s darker sides when he was dealing with his personal history, suppression, self hatred and interpersonal relationships at that period of time. The EP cover was drawn by An Gee Chan, and cassettes will be published by Hong Kong music label Popkisspunk.
