Tom Page makes music scores for Budweiser, Wells Fargo, Adidas and Nike television ads, to name a few.
Lynnfield resident Tom Page, a music supervisor and sound designer, creates music scores that have been heard on TV commercials for Dodge, Nestle, Acura, Nationwide Insurance, and many others.

Katie Nevils (middle school division), Katie Morelli (high school division) and Rich Sokolow (adult division) have been crowned Lynnfield Idol 2011.

She watches American Idol all the time, the FOX TV show that Lynnfield Idol is based on, and said Scottie influences her with his nice personality and voice. Nevils almost didn't make it to the preliminary auditions. She was at a soccer game that day, and asked her dad to leave so that she could audition - and she was glad she did. Her friends were contestants, too. Judge Tom Page, whose 30- and 60…
