“Tom’s smooth voice gave the whole evening a touch of glamour. As soon as he started singing we were all itching to start dancing.”
– Editor of Spy, Daily Telegraph
“Tom’s rendition of Rat Pack era tunes was just perfect for a ball attended by the Rat Pack of Fleet Street. His performance was much appreciated on a night which raised a lot of money for the Newspaper Press Fund.”
– Daily Mail
“He has every right to be an award winner both as a singer and charismatic performer”
– The Observer
“Tom has a voice of great character, with the subtlety to make swing songs really swing and enough edge to save ballads from blandness.”
– Jazz critic for The Observer
“You did a great job!”
– Private Client
“Tom gives it a modicum of swagger and an abundance of calm self-confidence; it’s as if James Bond were handed a microphone and was ordered to seduce a girl at a party, his deep British accent heightening the track’s ripe sensuality.”
