Powerful and emotive blue-eyed soul singer with bringing strong comparisons to early Rod Stewart and Style Council-era Paul Weller. An accomplished acoustic rhythm guitarist with over 4000 hours of live playing experience around the world. A pop producer with an ear for classic melodies and arrangement.
Bringing his own brand of blue-eyed soul and summer pop to the US from Nottingham, England in the form of his most recent EP, "Jacqueline" , Tom Wardle is reintroducing classic songwriting and catchy choruses back to pop. Drawing comparisons to early Faces with his vocals and great British songwriters of the eighties such as Roddy Frame and Paul Weller, Tom’s rich voice shines on tracks such as the rich sophisti-pop I Could Have Been A Millionaire of which BBC Introducing described as "musically and lyrically complex, yet joyful pop", or the Rolling Stones esque Jacqueline that bares the depth of a singer with a passion for detail rarely seen these days.
Honing his voice and songwriting over the last twelve years and over 2000 gigs, Tom’s songs have earned him praise from some of the industry’s top artists including Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones, who commended his single Be Another Night, and Chris Difford of the legendary pop-rock duo Squeeze, who helped produce Tom's latest record. Tom worked closely alongside Brian Wilson collaborator and producer Scott Bennett in Hollywood, CA, to finish his latest EP, with Tom calling in on his contacts of world class musicians, including members of Prefab Sprout, Tom Jones' Band, Brian Wilson Band and Fountains of Wayne.
Tom's recordings have been playlisted on the UK's biggest radio station BBC Radio 2.
