Tom Joshua is a twenty-five year old singer songwriter from Stockton on Tees, north-east England. He first picked up a guitar late in his teens where a few modest attempts at bedroom songwriting, evolved into something he hadn’t first set out to do. He has since been aimlessly writing, playing with bands and learning instruments as he goes.
Toms sound is primarily rooted in folk, although he’s not all to concerned about assigning or sticking to that particular genre; more fixed on storytelling. His narrative is bittersweet observations of normal life, his fascination with people, dealings in heartache, philosophy and his ties with nostalgia.
His Biggest influences include Nick drake, Sufjan Stevens, Damien rice Fleetwood mac, his parents cd and tape collection and the alt/rock teen angst bands he grew up listening to.
