TOM WILLIAMS

Saturday 9 September 2017

The story of Tom Williams’ music career could already be filed away in the archives. Once part of Tom Williams & The Boat, a support act to Adele and loved by BBC 6 Music, he packed it in and became a teacher with no plans to record.

Then earlier this year he proceeded to make the album of his career, written in practice rooms across Kent while taking breaks from teaching guitar and songwriting to primary and secondary school children.

Made on a shoestring, it’s a record that sounds like a big budget classic and is a testament to Williams' lifelong love affair with 1970s American rock.
