Having only uploaded his first song as a singer (Aurelia) in January it has been a life-changing 10 months for the 22-year-old from Caledonian Road. After a few weeks on Soundcloud, Aurelia was picked up by Nao for a full release on her Little Tokyo Recordings and has since had 20 plays on Radio 1 and two million streams on Spotify/Apple.
This summer, Tom then appeared as a relatively unknown guest on Mura Masa’s album alongside A$AP Rocky, A. K. Paul, Damon Albarn and Christine & The Queens. His first ever live performance – and his first trip to the US – was for Mura Masa’s Coachella set in front of 10,000 fans.
Throughout the growing hype, Tom has remained a somewhat reclusive presence on social media and bode his time before playing his first show. Self-taught as a musician and producer, he has been making beats since the age of 12 and has learned that patience pays off.
