Verified profile

Steeped in the traditions of American Folk, Country, Gospel and Blues, Tom's is an Americana style of Alt Country meets Greenwich Village Folk Revival. The Tom Cole Band can be booked as a duo with violin, or a trio with violin and percussion. Tom can also be booked solo via the Tom Cole page. Hailing from Hastings on the South Coast of England, Tom crafts heartfelt songs from everyday life, with a softly understated vocal style underpinned by a mix of Merle Travis style fingerpicking and country flatpicking. Tom has been entertaining the Hastings area for several years with his blend of all things Americana, releasing four EPs of original material along the way.
