Tom James - Singer/Songwriter Folk Acoustic Rock Melodic Live Act in Cornwall

Tom James Short Info

ENGLISH:
Growing up Tom James divided his time between surfing the coastline of Cornwall, UK, and jamming on his guitar. Having learnt the ins and outs by finger-style expert Andy McKee, Tom utilizes unique playing methods that stray from simple strummed chords as he finger picks complex arpeggios and uses his guitar percussively on his lap. Matched with his trickling harmonics, raw vocals and lyrical depth, his music is bound to captivate the eyes and ears of the audience and swiftly convert them into dedicated fans.

At just 22 years of age, Tom has already played support slots for well renowned acts Brother and Bones and Andy Mckee, James Bay, Current Swell along with playing various large festivals; Surfana festival, Boardmaster, Beachbreak, Somersault, Larmer Tree, Eden Sessions and Sidmouth Fringe sharing the stage with well renown artists such as Ben Howard, Sam Smith, Jungle and Dj Fresh.

Tom is on the brink of breaking through, having recently accrued an abundance of new fans in Germany, Switzerland and France after his first extensive European tour, promoting his Blood to Gold EP - released in 2014 via Indie Kitchen Record. Comprised of 5 songs, the emotive and cerebral EP is a master class in proving what it takes to stand out in the oversaturated climate of UK acoustic singer/songwriters.

This year Tom James is preparing the release for his third Ep "White Snow" Which will be planned for March 2017
