Hailing from downtown Winchester, Tom’s distinctive playing style blends classical Spanish and jazz guitar, drawing inspiration from jazz masters Charlie Byrd and Django Reinhardt as well as classical guitarists and composers such as Segovia and Villa-Lobos. His sound has been turning heads with hefty praise from heavyweight DJs & tastemakers alike including BBC Radio 1’s Rob Da Bank and Hôtel Costes, who featured his track ‘Tijuana’ on one of their compilations.
Tom has been involved in many projects in the last few years, including an album with singer and producer Mr James Bright, collaborations with German label Jazz & Milk and Argentinean producer Ezequiel Lodeiro. His newest project Mountain Folk with Danish producer René Kirkegaard has already attracted good attention with spot plays on Danish National Radio. A recent career highlight was his production work with Tickler Tea & Magic Fuzz’s track ‘The Shakedown’, which received radio play from BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamaq, was a top 5 Xposure tune on John Kennedy’s XFM show and featured in the top 100 singles of 2010 in Drowned in Sound.
Tom has been busy performing live too, DJing at Glastonbury and Ejector Seat festival with The Overeasy Collective this year so far and with previous gigs at London’s Jazz Cafe, Big Chill House, The Social, The Enterprise and The Bedford alongside live appearances on BBC Radio Solent being well received.View all posts by tom
