Tom West

Tom West is a singer-songwriter with a distinctive, androgynous vocal style and propensity to write catchy, tender folk songs often embellished with ambitious arrangements and cinematic flair.
Following a covid enforced touring hiatus during which he returned to Australia through most of 2020 & 2021, West will be returning to the road less travelled: with tour dates in November set to celebrate his releases over the previous few tumultuous years as well as re-introduce fans to a newly imagined acoustic version of his hugely popular song ‘Easy, Love’.
His 2020 album ‘Antarctica’ was written during a period after his father died from Motor Neurone Disease and released, with the generous support of his community of fans via Kickstarter, during Covid isolation after his album tour was cancelled. Produced by Allen Tate (San Fermin) in Brooklyn, NY it features a collection of songs that have proven to enthral audiences around the word with West’s forthcoming style and honestly behind his storytelling and music.

“A document to accompany self-reflection and meditation. I’m Livin’ is truly special.” - Rolling Stone Australia
