Mixing humour and heart with raw lyricism, Tom developed his style of storytelling as a resident artist at Camden's prestigious Roundhouse. A former UK Poetry Slam Champion, Tom has featured on eclectic stages from Lovebox and Latitude Festivals, to Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club. He has collaborated with a number of companies including BBC Radio 1Xtra, Manchester United and Stagecoach, and has had televised spoken word commissions for Channel 4 and Sky.
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 a tour of the UK in 2017/2018, produced by House Theatre.
Tom's poetic response to #AllLivesMatter in support of Black Lives Matter went viral this year, being shared by TV Presenter Davina McCall and featuring in the Manchester Evening News. He is currently releasing new music on Spotify / Apple Music as well as developing his second solo show, supported by Arts Council England.
