Folk / Indie / Soul
Tom Walker went from teaching himself guitar, piano and bass to signing with Relentless Records, selling out headlining shows, and racking up millions of streams online. Categorized loosely as Alternative-Soul, the Scotland born, Manchester raised multi-instrumentalist was largely self-taught until attending the London College of Contemporary Music for songwriting. After graduating, Walker shared a living space with ten other musicians, which served as an incubator for creativity and collaboration. Walker's manager Simon King would later receive the demos recorded at the house featuring another musician who lived there, Whilk & Misky member Nima. His sound draws from blues and folk elements while maintaining pop and soul sensibilities.
May 1, 2018 Tom Walker landed high on our radar as soon as we saw him perform live, so we decided to share the magic.
