Tom Sabella, a native of Hubbard, Ohio, grew up in the late fifties in a close-knit family with strong a religious background. His musical career began in adolescence with the church youth group and, at sixteen, he was performing with his band, The Acts, in New York City.
Tom inherited a flair for business from his father, an executive for Phar-mor. Always a leader, he sang with, managed, and marketed The Acts, and co-owned a recording studio.
