About Tom - Singer Guitarist

Soulful acoustic folk singer-guitarist
Singing guitarist
Public liability insurance of £5 million

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Tom is renowned for his unique, personal take on covers from every era of music. With a range of over 50 songs spanning from 60s Motown to 00s indie, from Otis Redding to Arctic Monkeys, he is set apart by his adaptability, equally at home providing subtle background music or bringing the house down with his passionate and soulful performances. Tom is also a BBC Introducing credited songwriter, working behind the scenes for other artists. His musical acumen shines through in his lively guitar style and expressive use of his instrument. Able to supply either a full PA system or a busking amplifier for his performances, he is a consummate professional, committed to providing a memorable experience for all who hear him perform. “Honestly blew my mind! His original take on already brilliant songs, coupled with his insane vocals meant the whole bar quite literally went wild. Cannot wait for him to play next!” (Jennifer, Wales). “OMG I absolutely love him! Currently listening to him and he is amazing!” (Emma, Wales) “Amazing singer with an outstanding voice! Couldn’t give the guy enough credit if I tried!” (Bill, Surrey) “The most soulful and talented chap around. It was such a pleasure having Tom play for us.” (Bex, Hampshire).

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Tom is known for his unique, personal take on covers from every era of music. He has an innate ability to read a room and create the perfect vibe for any occasion, whether it be subtle background music or bringing the house down with his passionate and soulful performances.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

FatFace, Heineken Lounge, Wasing Park, Youngs, Las Iguanas and many weddings at top venues across the UK.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Bon Iver especially, plus artists such as Otis Redding, Arctic Monkeys and Phoebe Bridgers.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Heineken Lounge

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Please get in touch if timings change after booking and I will do my best to accommodate these. If you require a longer performance, I'm happy to discuss this and adjust my quote.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

I can provide playlist music via ipod during the breaks to keep the momentum going during your event or I can put on your own playlist for you using my PA system. This is included free of charge if its between live performances.

How much time do you need to set up?

Normally only 30 minutes but I like to arrive early especially for weddings so try to arrive at least 1 hour in advance.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

I like to choose my own song lists to perform on the day so I can adapt my set to the vibe of the event. I'm happy to take 1 or 2 requests from my list though.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I bring my PA system and all equipment that I need to perform. I would just require a power supply with 1 accessible socket. If there isnt a power supply available please let me know at the time of booking as I have a battery powered busking amp I can use instead if advance notice is given.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

I can learn 2-4 brand new songs upon request for a small additional fee per song. At least a months notice would be ideal.

We booked Tom to play a 2-hour set for the drinks reception of our wedding August 2022. Tom was a fantastic addition to our wedding and we loved the selection of songs he played. He read the vibe of our day brilliantly and our guests commented on how good Tom was. Would highly recommend 😊👍🏼

Please can you pass on to Tom how much we loved his playing for Kitty’s wedding. He was a great hit with everyone there. He was flexible, helpful and a great musician. I would have no hesitation in having him play for us again and recommending him to others.

Tom, thanks so much for performing for us on Monday, you were FANTASTIC! All the guests thought you were amazing too (including my sister-in-law who works in hospitality & now wants you to play at her venue in the North East!). Thanks so much for learning our songs, it really made the ceremony feel personal and special. Good luck for your upcoming wedding, hopefully restrictions will have eased by then and you get the day you hope for!
