Artist Of The Week is the magnificent Tom Webber!
Tom is a young singer-songwriter who has been making a name for himself locally around the Oxfordshire area over the last few years. His self-produced debut EP ‘Stop and Think About It’ has been well reviewed on social media and received good play from both BBC Introducing and Gary Crowley, who described it as “just lovely – a real gem and Tom is a genuine talent”.
Listen to ‘Stop and Think About It’ here:
Tom has a nostalgic and unique voice. It sits beautifully between the legends Sam Cooke and Paulo Nutini, with a raspiness and vibrato that tells a story of its own. Anyone who sees Tom live or hears his music will quickly notice his inspiration from old classics. He captures the mellower sound from the rock ‘n’ roll era gorgeously with a modern high-fidelity production.
Watch his live performance of ‘Martha’ here:
Growing up with his grandfather as his music mentor, Tom loved listening to anyone from The Everly Brothers to Sam Cooke to Hank Williams. After studying for a degree in Audio Production at the SAE Institute in Oxford, which has clearly helped him produce this EP, Tom has been busy writing and playing gigs. 2022 sees him supporting Nick Lowe on his UK tour in April, playing The Henley Festival on July 8th, the Truck Festival and a number of shows around the country. Keep your ears out for this legend in the making.
