Tom grew up in a music oriented family and started to learn the guitar at a very young age. He joined his first band during high school when he was learning how to play the electric guitar. He struggled during high school because of drugs and alcohol, but pushed through with finishing school thanks to his mother offering him a Gibson Les Paul guitar if he matriculated. After high school, Tom started performing with various local bands.
Free from his addictions, Tom pursued a music career seriously, including writing his own songs. He did odd jobs to support his endeavors, and then formed the rock band Cinderella, becoming the lead singer of the band despite being hesitant at first. After several performances, they were discovered by Gene Simmons who tried to get the band signed but was unsuccessful. In 1985 they met Jon Bon Jovi, who convinced Mercury A&R to sign Cinderella, and the move propelled the group to success. They would release several albums including “Heartbreak Station”, “Long Cold Winter”, and “Night Songs”, with some of the songs that became very popular from their albums include “Shake Me”, “Gypsy Road”, and “Nobody’s Fool”. Most of their songs were written by Tom and he also found success as a songwriter, which has promoted her net worth.
After the “Heartbreak Station” tour, Kiefer lost his voice and had to undergo several operations which were unsuccessful, as doctors diagnosed him with vocal paralysis on the left portion of his cords. After Cinderella released “Still Climbing” they disbanded, and Tom would go on fighting depression, but he re-learnt how to sing, and then worked on a solo album. The band also reunited, and signed with Sony Records to release “Once upon a…” which was a compilation album. They also toured sporadically over the next few years, most recently in 2006 for their 20th anniversary, and then Tom released his solo album “The Way Life Goes”. Tom has also stated that because of the condition of his voice, he has to rest a lot, and re-train to put it back in better condition.
For his personal life, it is known that Tom married Emily in 1987, and she was responsible for the band logo, joining the band while on tour. They would eventually divorce, and he would then marry singer Savannah Snow. They have a son who was born in 2004.
