turn gems into killer tunes

Tom Kuras on SoundBetter

I am a constantly curious, hard-working producer, songwriter and arranger who happens to be a pretty good guitarist and bassist. I work hard dedicating my time to writing, learning and playing live. Through lockdown I have spent my time crafting songs for my own project and have come out of my comfort zone to write pure pop.

I have 15 years of professional experience in the music business, writing, recording and performing with some of the finest musicians in the UK including Beth Rowley, Elles Bailey, Carleen Anderson, Ian Matthews (Kasabian), Clive Deamer (Radiohead, Portishead), Robot Club (Massive Attack), Alex Lee (Florence and The Machine) and many, many more.

My enjoyment of music and working with others has been at the core of my creativity. From a young age I listened to music and what elements makes music work. My passion for all types of music has empowered me to be part of many amazing and disparate situations.

I specialise in rock, pop, funk, disco, indie, alternative and blues. I have studied how these genres work and can replicate the sound of the past with authenticity and flair yet I have huge enthusiasm for new and upcoming music.

I am available for electric & acoustic guitar session and bass sessions, whether you want parts replicated or new parts written. I am available to produce and write with artists.

I have lots of live experience, playing huge festivals and stadiums such as Glastonbury, Isle of Wight and Reading and Leeds, as well as seedy dives and clubs across Europe. In 2017 I played bass for The Shimmer Band who were picked for BBC introducing culminating in a Maida Vale session and Radio One and Radio Six live.
