Thomas Yon - The Event Host & singer-songwriter

Born in Winterhaven, Fl., but raised in Bryson City, NC.
His parents started a Boiled Peanut business in a shack just
up the road from NOC when Thomas was just a toddler.
His humble upbringing was merely earned from peanuts.
He started singing on stage at the age of 8 at local venues and even at Fairs,
notably the Georgia Mountain Fair at the age of 10.
But of course he grew up with love for whitewater, as he was always found
in a kayak or raft guiding. He took a break from singing and chased after waterfalls
for a few years bringing on 1st and 2nd place in many
National Whitewater Competitions. In 2014 he settled in Asheville
and has been writing/composing originals ever since.
Always active in the music scene between singing at and/or hosting open mics & singer-songwriter showcases, laying harmonies for other local artists, Duo & Trio sets, and of course with the Band Heirlüm that came together soon after singing at
the Muscle Shoals Tribute hosted by the Grey Eagle in 2015.
