Tom Townsend is a crafted singer songwriter and one of the most exciting new talents in the UK right now.
He is the embodiment of blues, jazz, pop and soul, all fused together in one magnetic indie package. From punchy, New-Orleans-style grooves and Latin Jazz, to delicate, poignant acoustic songs, Tom’s work is a glorious result of his countless years in music, and a beautiful blend of a diverse range of influences.
Ticket-holders will be able to claim a free 10” vinyl copy of Tom’s recent single at the gig (subject to availability) by signing up to his mailing list at the merchandise stall.
During the afternoon, Tom and members of his band will present a workshop, discussing the songwriting and arranging process for his recent album, and how this worked in the context of the recording studio. The session will therefore be relevant to songwriters, producers and performers.
