With the use of a looping unit, Tor creates tasty yet infectious grooves allowing him to build the song and improvise over it as he goes. Essentially becoming a one man band.
With a large repertoire of well crafted original tunes and classic rock/folk covers, Rev Tor is capable of delivering an energy driven acoustic set or a laid back coffee house/pub performance depending on the mood and vibe of the venue and audience.
