According to the Internet source given below, Tom Brier is an American ragtime pianist and composer born in Oakdale, California.
Tom Brier was exposed to ragtime in his earliest years when his parents purchased a player piano when aged just four years old . His piano-playing style is an aggressive left hand that attacks the lower half of the piano keyboard in staccato, machine-gun-like octave passages. He alternates these voicings with a variety of other sounds: walking bass ("boogie"), single-note figures, and widely-spaced chords often both arpeggiated and unarpeggiated tenths.
