"Achingly beautiful" – Rev. Kate Bottley (BBC Radio 2)
"One of the UK's most moving songwriters" – John Kennedy (Radio X)
Tom Bright’s 2023 has seen him appear on BBC’s The One Show, interviewed on BBC Radio 2, live in session on Radio X, perform at The London Palladium, Shepherd's Bush Empire, Glastonbury Festival, Celtic Connections and tour the UK a couple of times over already.
Tom has in fact been on the road relentlessly these past few years, supporting the likes of Mystery Jets, Tom Grennan, Reverend And The Makers, Declan O'Rourke, William Prince, Richard Walters, The Bluetones and Ligabue just to name a few.
In a career that’s seen him work with Mick Jones (The Clash) and Matt Johnson (The The), share a stage with Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) and have his guitar signed by Johnny Marr (The Smiths), he spent 2 years in Spotify’s Most Beautiful Songs in the World playlist and has turned the attention of many, from Guy Garvey to John Kennedy.
Before his musical endeavours, Tom was once the UK’s youngest pub landlord, and is also a former patient of Great Ormond Street Hospital, undergoing a multitude of major life-saving operations.
His third album, ‘Somewhere Anywhere’ – produced by Ed Harcourt and mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios – is his most personal and reflective work to date.
He will be live on BBC 5 Live with Gordon Smart on 5th November, before embarking on what will be a very intimate and engaging headline UK tour, ending here with us in Penrith.
