Having released two brilliant tracks to date, the soulful, ‘Fly Away With Me’ and his latest the stirring ‘Play Dead’, as well as collaborations with Kojey Radical and Avelino, Tom will be releasing ‘Just You & I’ With its stripped back production the track brilliantly displays the emotional resonance of his voice. Tom has already found critical acclaim from tastemakers everywhere including Pigeons & Planes and Clash as well as BBC Radio1, BBC 1Xtra and Beats1.
Recently signed to Sony’s Relentless Records, Tom Walker was born in Scotland and raised in Manchester on his father’s extensive record collection – drawn to artists like Ray Charles, The Police and Bob Marley. He’s spent the past few years honing his sound, landing in a house-share with twelve other musicians (including members of Whilk & Misky), jamming together in their home-built, soundproof studio.
Earning his stripes playing gigs across the UK (including his first ever London headline show in September at the Waiting Room which sold out), Tom has gone on to support Jake Bugg, Maverick Sabre, and Gallant, bolstering a growing number of festivals including British Summer Time in Hyde Park, Secret Garden Party, The Great Escape and Live At Leeds.
Tom has also just announced his tour for next year.
