South Londoner Tom had been busy making J Dilla style beats, guitar lines with an echo of John Mayer and his own feelgood take on neo-soul while still at school, hitting a sweet spot on his self-published Beat Tape 1. Yet it was when he dropped Beat Tape 2 in August 2015 that major tastemakers and supporters like Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, YouTube’s Majestic Casual, Huw Stephens, Clara Amfo, Beats 1’s Julie Adenuga and Jaden Smith began queuing up to proclaim him as one of the UK’s most essential new emerging musical talents.
With a growing fan base and over fifty million streams on Spotify he’s also earned a reputation as one of the UK’s best new producers following remixes for the likes of Lianne La Havas, Mos Def and Busta Rhymes, plus collaborations with Loyle Carner, Carmody, Jordan Rakei and Zak Abel.
Tom has now put a full live band together and following sold out autumn festival dates across Europe and the US he’s begun recording a debut album set for release later this year. It’s the perfect moment to catch this young musician make his Summer Series debut.
