Tom the Lion played the Seabright Arms in September 2013. Described as a musical polymath the young Londoner writes, plays and produces every note of his material – a uniquely rich and varied tapestry of sonics and songs.
To date, Tom has maintained a refreshing mystique. With his records only available in Rough Trade and on his website and focusing entirely on his songs, he has not courted any critical attention, preferring to build chatter amongst vinyl collectors who cherish such an enigmatic approach. Yet Huw Stephens and Rob Da Bank picked up and played his first release on Radio1.
“The adventures of Tom the Lion” remains a collectors’ treasure
