Amazing British singer-songwriter breaking through!
Tom Rosenthal is an amazing English singer-songwriter. Very fine songs, atmospheric clips, and contributions to successful soundtracks have provided him with a dedicated 'following', as was evidenced by a Roma show sold-out months in advance. This is what he has to say:
'My name is Tom Rosenthal and I’m going to be honest with you. You won’t have seen me live before. The main reason being that I’ve had two daughters in the last 5 years and I didn’t want to leave home for long periods of time. But now it’s time to get out there and play. I do believe my songs can emotionally connect with people in a really great way and I want to make sure that happens in a live setting too.
Until now most live performances have just been myself and a piano/keyboard but I’m expanding my music horizons! For these performances I’ll be joined by a cellist and a guitar player/backing vocalist but will still aim to keep the intimacy that’s always been at the heart of my sound.'
For fans of RY X, Ben Howard, Bear's Den, Patrick Watson, of ook het pianospel van Joep Beving, Wim Mertens, Michael Nyman...
In the press The Guardian: 'Gently epic ballads that channel Brian Wilson-esque whimsy through the mind of the classic British kook’'.
Le Soir (over Tom Walker!): '...à l' instar également d' un Tom Rosenthal propose une musique romantique d' une grande simplicité qui a pour elle de toucher directement l'auditeur, sans artifices.'
Fun fact Also plays 'air-piano' on occasion, at least in one of his videos.
