About Tom @ purely the music
I started performing music in primary school productions, taking on solo lead roles from an early age. During my time in secondary school, teachers seemed reluctant to give me opportunities to be involved in school productions due to my apparently 'unconventionaly sourced' musical ability. As a result I focused most of my energy in a studio setting. Here he developed his songwriting skills and a natural approach to learning any instruments around him. After leaving school, I joined bands as a drummer but always felt that I wasn't utilising all of my ability as a musician. After a few years of collaborating on Hip hop projects, I decided to concentrate on writing complete songs without external input, I began to share these recordings with a small selection of people around me at work. The great response I recieved from this small selection of people reinvigorated his love for performing. He took the opportunity to perform solo, the first time for many years at a charity concert and I now feel that it is the time to step away from this period of development and fully embrace his musical talent as songwriter and performer.
