Tom's voice has earned him praise from some of the industry's top artists including Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones, who commended Tom's single Be Another Night, and drummer-turned-producer Neil Conti (Prefab Sprout, David Bowie), who produced Tom's latest EP, Summer In Bloom released August 2015, he has teamed up with an acclaimed roster of musical talent including Conti on the drums, and members of Van Morrison and Jools Holland's bands.

"Sounds great!" - Ronnie Wood (The Rolling Stones)
'I absolutely love his voice' - Steve Levine (Grammy-Winning Producer, Head of The Music Producers Guild)'
'Talented lad...like this tune.' - Dr. Robert (The Blow Monkeys)
"Superb, thanks for giving us a brilliant night." - Mike Ashley (Newcastle United FC Owner)
'Consistently one of our best performers' - The Roof Gardens, Kensington.
'Singer and guitarist Tom is already well known in certain areas of the live music sector and, appearing here alongside his backing musicians, he proved what a fine performer he is. An acoustic version of the soul classic My Girl certainly made for interesting listening and the set was one of the highlights of the day for this reviewer.' ' The Stage Magazine, (December 2010)
We can not thank Tom enough for his performance at our Wedding. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed his set. Its amazing how a young man with a guitar can command a large room full of guests, he was brilliant. Here is a lovely picture of him on the night. We have already emailed Tom to say thanks.

Absolutely superb. Never in all the years we have been having acts on for our summer balls have I seen a crowd react like they did to Tom. We will definitely be booking him for our Christmas party.

Yes thanks, Tom was great and it was a really good night. Thanks for all your help.

Tom W: Another Late Night EP (****)
"At the tender age of 22, local troubadour Tom has joined forces with a
cracking band, reinvented the concept of the extended play and serves up
four slices of self-penned power pop. The mellifluous All I Need
showcases our man's vocal maturity: it's dripping in harmonies and has
the deftest of guitar solos' a rarity these days.
Up next is the funky Be Another Night... all electric piano and attitude (think Good Enough by Dodgy), which begs to be heard poolside. Track three, Let Your Love Shine Out is, the sleeve notes tell me, another original. I say that only because I'd swear it was a long-lost floor-filler from Wigan Casino,
complete with an uncanny Weller-esque vocal. My Door Is Open
slows things right down and if Tom ever dreams of playing arena gigs
(and why not'), then this is the one where the lighters come out. An
assured debut, which promises good things to come."
