TOM WILLIAMS
“Next year’s Brits critics’ choice award is surely his” The Guardian

Tom Williams returns to Oxford off the back of his main stage Common People Fest and having his new album ‘All Change’ as ‘BBC6 Music album of the day’ today to headline The Jericho Tavern this September.

It’s a strange story. A folk-rock band – signed to Moshi Moshi, beloved of BBC 6 Music, support act to Adele – nearly make it in the business, but not quite. Their frontman packs it all in and turns to teaching, with no plans to make a record again. Then, in 2017, he produces the album of his career – with the help of some school children, and a group of first year students from Leeds.

All Change is an album made on a shoestring that sounds like a big budget classic: a reflection of Williams’ life-long love affair with 1970s American rock showcasing a new refinement to his songwriting, and a more commercial edge – “a celebration of the big chord change and the emotional sucker-punch line,” as he puts it. Think Asbury Park by way of Hastings – an unexpected trump card from someone who’d put rock and roll dreams to rest.

Tom Williams supporters include BBC’s Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq, Cerys Matthews, Huey Morgan, Huw Stephens and Radio X John Kennedy.

The new album has won critical acclaim and see's Tom winning new fans at every turn.
