Tom Stephens – Water
Tom Stephens grew up in the coastal farmland of Somerset, England. It wasn’t until his teenage years that he would discover music which fired his imagination, becoming equally inspired by classic rock, the alternative sounds of the ‘90s from both sides of the Atlantic, and acoustic artists such as Nick Drake and Iain Archer. Tom would go on to front various rock outfits throughout his teens and twenties, including alternative two-piece Black Initials (self-titled EP released 2016) and rock ‘n’ roll throwback group Mr. Bojangles’ Moustache who performed at 2007’s Glastonbury Festival.
As well as performing in a hand-picked choir to appear alongside Elbow at the Royal Festival Hall, whilst at university in London he formed Tom Stephens & The Retreat. The band gigged heavily from 2007 to 2010 and an EP of the band’s recordings was released in 2014. With a discography which also includes two other solo EPs, ‘Division’ (2010) and ‘Barricades’ (2012), Tom’s debut album ‘Metamorphosis’ was released in October 2019.
Accompanied by pianist Jacob Daley and double bass player Joseph Buckler, the tracks were recorded in ever-developing live takes at Buckler’s Yak Music Studio close to Stephens’ hometown over one April weekend. ‘Metamorphosis’ aims to portray Tom’s life, and the people and places he has known in a candid and evocative manner. He says of the narrative behind the songs, “Sometimes it feels like you’re firmly on one path and then your perspective changes. You make peace with the past, or some part of yourself, and the world moves forward in unexpected ways”.
