TOM BAXTER
After gathering broad critical and public acclaim for his first two albums -­‐ "Feather & Stone” and "Skybound”-­‐ Tom Baxter returns in the winter of 2014 with a unique solo UK/Irish Tour. The man who co-­wrote the song 'Better', the modern day classic that has become entwined into the fabric of so many people's lives has also had his songs covered by artists such as Dame Shirley Bassey and Boyzone. While Tom Waits, Gary Barlow & Rufus Wainwright have also all tipped their hats in his direction.
Tom's music has been placed in numerous Hollywood films & his achingly beautiful voice has been the backdrop to some of the nations most exciting moments over the last few
years from including the Bejing Olympics to coverage of the 2012 Royal Wedding.

Over the last few years Tom took time time out to rediscover his passion for painting, travelling and an ongoing love of the guitar. His new album 'The Uncarved Block' is special, not least because it is only available from gigs. Few albums can claim to have been written in Devon, India, Spain, and California. The album showcases his masterful guitar-­playing and the raw, confessionary depth of his lyrics and voice.

Those who do discover Tom Baxter rarely look back and more often than not integrate him into a soundtrack of their lives 
Witness him live, and you’re part of that rare experience of an audience totally captivated by what they’re watching.
If a pin drops, you’ll hear it.
