Recently signed to Relentless, Tom Walker has been making waves in the scene! “Play Dead” – a distinctive, engaging track that immediately conjures comparisons with some of the seminal and brightest crossover singer/ songwriters coming out of the UK – Finley Quaye, Hozier and Paulo Nutini. Tom has already crafted a remarkably soulful signature, blended with heavier beats and carefully thought-out, understated samples. It’s a track of the kind of polish and ambition that surely marks Tom out as a definite one to watch for this year. Listen here.
Recently signed to Sony’s Relentless Records, Tom Walker was born in Scotland and raised in Manchester on his father’s extensive record collection – drawn to artists like Ray Charles, The Police and Bob Marley. He’s spent the past few years honing his sound, landing in a house-share with twelve other musicians (including members of Whilk&Misky), jamming together in their home-built, soundproof studio.
