As a singer who has experience in classical music, musical theatre, swing, pop, rock 'n' roll and more, Tom writes and plays music on guitar and voice. His songs transcend various genres but are often described as folk, indie, acoustic pop and singer-songwriter styles; a more intimate and relaxed feel that has proven popular.
Highlights of Tom's singing career thus far have been supporting current artists such as Olly Murs, Diana Vickers, Amelia Lily and Tommy Reilly, a performance with the Gabrieli Consort at the 2011 BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.
Songbird was first recorded for his debut EP, Sixteen Hours and remains a favourite of his followers, some of whom were asked to feature as backing singers in the final choruses of the track. The simple melody in the chorus gives audiences an anthem to remember. For this reason, it is usually the finalé to his live show, after he has taught his audience the tune. "This one has that punch to it that for me makes it the stand out single, building to the crescendo of the chorus, lyrically beautiful and highly descriptive." - Andi Grainger, Blogger/Podcaster and Guitarist/Vocalist, reviewing Sixteen Hours."
