Tom Featherstone, an artist from South-London and now based in Sheffield, has released his new single. Featherstone originally tried to make it as a one man band in the music industry, relying on his multi-instrumentalist capabilities to perform shows. He regularly played shows around the capitol with tracks, guitar and the use of a drum machine. Since Tom’s move to Sheffield he has managed to acquire somewhat of a band. He makes use of fellow band member Tom Longshaw for the mellow saxophone lines heard throughout his music as well as Zak Michaud for the pinning and dreamy bass lines that cleverly glue the song together. Tom Featherstone is now working with new producer Nicholas Alexander, who’s worked with the likes of ‘Before Breakfast’ and ‘Dead Slow Hoot’ to achieve the current sound heard on this new record.
Tom is taking the steps to develop his sound further by inviting the new additional band members into his team and by way of the new producer. His aims are to fully encompass his surrounding talents to progress his sound aesthetic of subtle pop to be at the top of his game. With Comparisons to the likes of Bon Iver, John Mayer and Jeff Buckley, Featherstone makes efficient use of his soft and mellow vocals while totally modernising and propelling his inspiration’s style into 2020 with the use of the drum machine.
The song was written as an answer back to Tom’s tendency to get anxious over lots of both small and big things in life and felt like many of his songs followed the same narrative, which he wanted to introduce a contrasting song with the simple sentimental message of leaving it ‘Til the Morning’:
“The song was written in response to just being fed up with overthinking and getting anxious over loads of things and I just got tired of all my songs dwelling on that headspace. So I decided to just write a song that just tells myself to chill out and leave it til the morning.”
