TOM A. SMITH
Despite being only 17-years-old, Sunderland-based newcomer Tom A. Smith has already achieved more than most artists do in a lifetime. He played his first ever gig aged just eight, supporting local psychedelic rockers Detroit Social Club at legendary Newcastle venue The Cluny, performed at Glastonbury before he was even in secondary school, and Tim Burgess handpicked him to play his stage at Kendall Calling, making him the festival’s youngest ever performer. He has played live with local hero Sam Fender, Catfish & The Bottlemen, and The Courteeners, as well as supported other Northern acts on the rise like The Lathums and The Mysterines.
His debut single, ‘Wolve’s’, has already been played on R1, 6 Music, Radio X, BBC Introducing, KCRW and Triple J and received playlist support at Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer.
