Tom Carter

Tom grew up listening to the great British Invasion Bands of the 1960s. However he was also a child of the 70s, and the early eighties. His musician’s love of music stretches far and wide, be it funk, punk, new wave, blues, to name a few.

A few of his favorite influences are eclectic to say the least: The Beatles, The Beastie Boys, The Animals, Butler (Richard of the Furs and/or Love Spit Love), The Cars, Sade, The Clash, Cream, the Cult, The Doors, God Fathers, Joe Jackson, Led Zeppelin, Morrisey, Ocean Blue, Outfield, Otis Redding, The Ramones, REM, The Spinners, The Who.

What always mattered, and matters, to Tom is that the song itself is genuine and sincere, although, he admits, “a hooky pop, and a good beat always matters too…gotta have a good story to tell”. It’s important to him that the song moves you in some way. It makes you dance, makes you cry, makes you think, makes you want to learn and hear more…in other words, that you hear it and want to become a fan of that music.
