During the years I have been participating in several recordings both behind and in front the mixing desk and sometimes even in the producers chair. Here are some that made it all the way to the counter.
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
Somewhere in heaven - Francie Conway / Christy Dignam (2015)
I'm truly thrilled to announce this, Francie asked fall 2014 if I wanted to participate on this song. Just by that I had to say yes as it's one of my faves from him.
Pressrelease: "In this heart warming song Francie Conway is joined by some legendary musicians with a recording that will touch your soul.
Christy Dignam - Aslan
Finbar Furey - The Fureys

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.

Fools Symphony - Kiwi (2002)
Original Release on MP3.com 2002
Fools Symphony has been/is a lifetime project. I began writing the first parts when I got my first piano at age 16. Ever since then I've been returning to the project adding parts to it. The first release to the public was a midi set in 1998 and was awarded in a Creative (soundcard) competition and I got a fantastic review from a Australian conductor (unfortunately lost in the 101010's).
In 2000 I released a website containing a libretto and the re-arranged music as well as a CD in 2002 on MP3.com (when the mp3 website was shutdown for independents the CD was withdrawn).
I'm currently reworking and rearranging the music for a full symphony orchestra and rock rhythm section and hope to have a (Final?) instrumental as well as an vocal version by the end of this year.
