For Tom, music has always been a part of life, coming from a family of pub and club managers in Northern England he has never been away from it. As Tom will say music is a necessity in his life and its definitely something he can’t live without.
Supported by his family and friends he booked his very first professional gig at 14 and hasn’t looked back since. Performing at venues and events across the country, it isn’t as much of a job if you’re doing what you love. But his talents don’t stop at performing, Tom is also a singer-songwriter and music producer and his debut single “Feel The Same” was written by Tom as well as producing the single and allowing his counter music producer in Sri Lanka to make the finishing touches. I am sure you will agree with us, you would have thought a well-known “record label” had produced the single. The single was also promoted by Tom on all the major music platform such as Apple, Spotify, Apple iTunes, Deezer, Google Music, Tidal and Soundcloud but the single can be downloaded on Apple iTunes
For creative and performance inspiration Tom looks to every genre, inspired by the raw emotions of Amy Winehouse to the bawdy extravagant showmanship of Bette Midler and Freddie Mercury, celebrating these influences Tom brings a contemporary sound to his music, influenced by Dj’s such as Sigala and Calvin Harris.
As the events get larger so does Tom’s passion for music, when performing at Liverpool Pride to a crowd of over 40,000 people, was he nervous? Of course. But was it one of the most exhilarating experiences of his career? You bet!
There was only one problem for Tom, he knew he wanted to share his talent with the world but couldn’t find a song he could resonate with, the answer was to step out of his comfort zone and write his own songs reflecting on his own life. With no training and no songwriting experience, he took a stab in the dark, resulting with music from the hear a reflection on his experiences navigating through life and hopes for the future.
