Tom Misch is a 20 year old producer who is already on the radar of major tastemakers like Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and Beats 1’s Julie Adenuga. Tom began his musical career at the age of four with the violin. At age 9, he learned guitar and the rest was history. “I spent all of my time jamming over chords and building layers,” he says. “That’s what gave me the appetite for making beats and music production.”

Inspired early on by bands like Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Nirvana and John Mayer, he discovered boom bap hip hop in his later teen years. He credits legendary producer J Dilla and R&B singer Erykah Badu as major influences on his style. “I got heavily into jazz and hip hop and it opened up this whole new world of soulful electronic music to me” he says.

After taking the musical ingredients of J Dilla style beats, John Mayer- esque guitar lines and neo-soul and putting them through his very own musical blender, the then 17-year-old started putting his homemade beats on his new Soundcloud account back in 2012. In no time at all, his tracks were being sampled by budding rappers on YouTube, before influential Berlin beatmaker Iamnobodi shared one of his tracks on Soundcloud, leading to the first spurt of widespread interest in his music. He ended up working with a cluster of new London artists who share his sensitive, soulful, deeply melodic and emotive approach to music.

2016 signaled a monumental year for Tom Misch, with him releasing the critically acclaimed Reverie and headlining a sold out U.S. tour.
