Asterope

Featuring an outstanding range of talented, London based musicians this exciting group regularly perform Tom's most recent set of emotive and imaginative compositions. Tom's writing has been described by Evan Parker as "wonderfully intricate and demanding and yet is exuberantly listenable". Tom has recently released his Kenny Wheeler Prize debut album BLOOMER on Edition Records with this band and is looking forward to touring the album throughout the UK including dates at Kings Place, Turner Sims Concert Hall and The Pizza Express.

Tom draws on compositional influences such as John Scofield, The Golden Age of Steam, Mark Lockheart, Brad Mehldau, Iain Ballamy and Chris Potter to create a set of music unlike anything on the London Scene today.
