Tom is a spoken word poet, actor, and singer/songwriter. He has featured on eclectic stages from Lovebox and Latitude Festivals, to Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and is a former UK Poetry Slam Champion.

 

Mixing humour, heart and raw lyricism, he developed his style of storytelling as a resident artist at Camden's prestigious Roundhouse.  He has collaborated with a variety of companies including Manchester United and Stagecoach, and has had televised spoken word commissions featured on Channel 4 and Sky One. 

Tom's debut solo theatre show Growing Pains commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre was published in 2018 by Playdead Press. The "ambitious and vivid" (The Stage) production enjoyed a sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, later transferring to the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. The show then embarked on two UK tours, in 2017 and 2018 produced by House Theatre. 

Most recently his poetic response to #AllLivesMatter in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter went viral, also featuring in the Manchester Evening News and BBC Radio Manchester. His recent character comedy work has been featured on Lad Bible and he is currently releasing new music, now available to stream on all major streaming platforms including Spotify / Apple Music. 

Aside from his own work, Tom has worked extensively as an Actor and Voice over artist.
