British singer/ songwriter Tom Forest returns with the second release from his upcoming debut album ‘Hope’. ‘Believer’ again immediately marks out the soulful and gorgeously uplifting talent that burst onto the scene last month with ‘Summer’. Listen here
‘Believer’ underlines Tom’s pure ability with melody and tempo – introducing a churchlike, almost evangelical tone to build on the guitar licks that undulate and shimmer their way around his splintered, raw vocal. It’s another beautifully rendered and produced track from an artist that is beginning to build a compelling body of work.
Speaking on the track, Tom states: “Last year I was in a dark place with music. It felt like life was telling me it was time to stop, even though it was something that had always been second nature. To make an album took a huge amount of support from friends and family – many people contributed to that process and I’m so grateful. Sometimes the value of dreams is not in whether you achieve or fail, but in the belief in that it brings out in those around you. If you find yourself fighting a battle, even if you lose, you see who comes to join you.”
