Tom Prior is a North London raised singer-songwriter who is ready to take on the world with his genre-defying music.
His music, which spans numerous influences including indie and hip-hop, has been dubbed as “real music for real people who don’t conform to genre” by Wonderland. Tom has continued to demonstrate his compelling vocals with his latest track ‘Don’t Worry’, the first offering from his forthcoming EP The Sunday Scene.
‘Don’t Worry’ is a very personal track which draws on Tom’s life experiences. He cites his daughter as one of his inspirations and the track is actually an ode to her.
“I missed your first steps but I helped you find your feet
I tried to teach you the importance of your family
We stick together and we don’t break that philosophy
falls on your ears like a broken man’s hypocrisy”
Tom’s forthcoming The Sunday Scene EP will be made up of four heartfelt tracks, including a collaboration with Sticky Blood’s Andy Nicholson and Jamie Shield, and is due for release on November 9. There is set to be three different versions of the EP: the original version, an acoustic version called The Sunday Scene Unplugged, and The Sunday Scene Lock In Sessions, featuring a wealth of up-and-coming artists including Haus, Jake Isaac and Lauen Aquilina.
Over the past few months, Tom has been creating a buzz on the music scene. His appearance on Radio 1’s Live Lounge with Naughty Boy and Little Simz earned him support from artists including Paloma Faith, Tinie Tempah and Labrinth, and he has since appeared in Clash, Hunger and The Line Of Best Fit. He’s continued to grow as an artist through live performances, and Tom will be bringing his live show to London next month, with a gig at Sebright Arms on November 30.
With his unique sound and an ever growing buzz, it won’t be long before Tom Prior is the name on everyone’s lips.
