Thomas J Speight to play the Shipping Forecast in Liverpool

2011 saw the digital release of the ‘Willow Tree’ EP through the independent label Young and Lost Club (home of Noah and the Whale and Johnny Flynn) and support slots for Joshua Radin, Doves, Mumford & Sons, Fionn Regan and the Freelance Whales – all of which has helped make Thomas and his melodic vocal stylings a must see.  The EP received widespread acclaim for it’s insightful lyrics and intricate arrangements, including Ryan Adams, who acknowledged the sound as “so beautiful”.This, in addition to support from Sir Paul McCartney, suggest that Thomas J Speight is one to watch. 
2012 will see Thomas further develop his musical style, releasing a four track ep lyrics and intricate arrangements are complimented by lush, beautiful harmonies from The Staves and Allie Moss. Also featuring Brad Pemberton (of Ryan Adams and The Cardinals), the tracks offer a different side to Thomas, while still managing to retain what made his previous release 'Willow Tree' so distinctive.
