I'm an award winning songwriter/producer based in Oxford, UK. I love working with artists and helping to create a sound that represents them. I love all music, but especially pop and indie music.
Raised in Hong Kong, Tom grew up singing and performing music in his church. In 2013, his solo album Compass reached #1 on the iTunes album charts in Hong Kong, and stayed in the Top 20 for 2 weeks. The album also charted in both the UK and US iTunes Top 100 albums.
Tom has also co-written both for and with established and emerging artists alike. Most notably, in 2013 his song From Ashes To Beauty was cut by multi-platinum selling Asian pop star, Sammi Cheng, on her album, Love is Love.
Since 2014, Tom’s main focus has been on writing and producing, however in 2016 he started to release new music under the name CHARIOTS, with the debut single Dreaming As We Go receiving radio airplay across the UK including on BBC Introducing.
In September 2016, his CHARIOTS EP was nominated for ‘Best Album / EP of the Year’ at the Unsigned Music Awards 2016, selected out of over 3000 entries by a panel of 80 music industry experts including presenters, producers, and editors from BBC, MTV, PRS, The Guardian, Sony Music and others.
In 2018, Tom released Lament. A collection of songs 5 years in the making- the EP explores this under discussed expression through a heart wrenching journey of honest and raw lyricism, set to a dynamic and engaging soundscape. In May 2018, the single Dead Things To Life went to #1 on the UK Christian Chart.

Tom is an accomplished producer, really enjoyed how he interpreted the song and brought the the whole production to life. I would definitely work with him in the future.
Got Tom involved on an album I was doing with a great artist signed to an Indie label. He did an amazing job on production for one of the tracks. Great communication and excellent work. Easily worth every penny.
Looking forward to working together again soon.
