LONDON-based singer and songwriter Tom Bright is one of the most hard-working men in music. Once an 18 year-old pub landlord, now a travelling artist, he has already worked and performed with some of the biggest names in the industry.

In 2017, Tom featured in The The’s multimedia project, The Inertia Variations, after being asked by Matt Johnson himself if he would do a version of Love Is Stronger Than Death for the movie and album.

Around that same time, Tom was recording his debut songs, with Mick Jones, of The Clash and Big Audio Dynamite, on production.

At the start of 2018, the first release Schoolyard Crimes received huge national radio exposure across the UK's best new music station BBC Radio 6. Singles Tsunami of Suits and Spiders followed - both lapping up more plaudits and press.

While simultaneously touring across Europe and the UK almost constantly through 2018, Tom curated his own music festival in association with the Joe Strummer Foundation, Bright Fest.

Tom will be playing at Ruskin's Bar at Kendal tomorrow (Wednesday, October 10) with local performer Wayne Scurra.
