Tom is taking a mini-sabbatical from performing in January and February 2022 - a belated paternity leave so he and baby Tico can travel with Elena as she tours the US!

 

Meanwhile, two of Tom’s albums have been shortlisted in this year's BBC Music Magazine Awards, with voting open to the public… The Jukebox Album is nominated in the Premiere category (please vote here if you feel so inclined!), and Kaleidoscope’s American Quintets in the Chamber category (vote here!)

And - Tom and Elena’s latest album, From Brighton to Brooklyn, was released in early January on Chandos Records, and can be ordered here!
