London-based artist Tom Speight recently released ‘The River’, the first single from Tom Speight’s new EP My My My.
Speaking on the track, Tom says: ‘I’ve always wanted to record ‘The River’ with Chris Bond. I knew that he would capture the mood of the song and layered atmospheric texture of it. The production uses a similar palette as ‘Willow Tree’ with its strings, female vocals and double bass. I’ve got fond memories of recording this track because we would always work on it at night because of its chilled nature. I was lucky enough to have Allie Moss feature on guest vocals, she has such a beautiful tone to her voice. I remember the first time I heard her on the BT TV advert I Shazam’d the song and messaged her on Twitter, asking if she would be up for singing on one of my tracks, thankfully she said yes.’
Having released 4 EP’s over the last year, Tom is set to release another quartet of EP’s in 2017 & 2018, the first of which ‘Willow Tree’ was released in Jan ‘17. The 2nd EP My My My follows in July, the 3rd and 4th in the Autumn of 2017 and early 2018.
2017 has also seen Tom signed to Kobalt (recording) and Cooking Vinyl (publishing). Radio 2 playlist support continues and Tom has reached an amazing 10m streams on Spotify.
Tom Speight plays The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham on Sun 19th November 2017. Tickets available here.
