Tom’s versatility and creativity as a pianist establishes him as one of the most exciting, up and coming players in the UK.

His style brings originality while still being firmly rooted in the Swing tradition . Growing up, Tom was always exposed to the sounds of Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner and Nat King Cole to name a few.
He started playing the piano at the age of 5 and after completing his Classical studies he then decided to concentrate fully on Jazz. He studied at Leeds College of Music and graduated with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Jazz Performance, receiving the Jazz Conservatoire Prize.
