A supremely talented songwriter who is only now working on a solo career after 25 years in music, Tom Townsend is an artist who deserves to find an audience. Not only is he a great example of how hard work can take you places, his new album ‘Leave It Up To Me’ is absolutely top class.

The video for the title track can be found below, and is a great example of what makes Townsend such a compelling listen. His use of jazz and soul tropes mixed with pop structure to make it more accessible, plus his endearing vocal style, are all qualities that flow throughout the full album. The album is out on January 15th, and if you’re searching for a new artist to start 2018 strong, this is your guy.
