Already one of the most respected young musicians in the Czech music scene, this talented artist is ready to be crowned Czech’s best music export. Having already notched up memorable performances at this year’s Great Escape and Europe’s largest music and cultural festival Sziget and won the first Czech Fresh – the music project led to cooperation with UK live promoters to help give an international focus to local music – Thom is ready to announce his first headline UK tour.
The captivating folk-pop artist has just returned from the showcase festival in Austria, Waves Vienna, and before he heads to the UK clubs, he’ll have two shows on the continent – October 19 at La Carme at the French showcase festival, MAMA festival in Paris and at the BUSH festival in Budapest.
Thom will then take his perfectly combined mix of modern sound and classic songwriting to the UK – playing some of the best independent venues – including Head of Steam in Newcastle on 25th November.
Creating captivating folk-pop songs with the use of his distinctive voice, memorable top lines and introspective lyrics, Thom’s debut single ‘I Have No Inspiration’, dominated the Czech charts for two years, becoming a domestic hit, and culminating with Thom winning two of the most prestigious Czech music awards. Inspired by British songwriters, he grew up busking in the streets of Prague, he first came to the attention when his song ‘Towards the Sun’ was chosen as the soundtrack for the Czech movie ‘Křídla Vánoc’, Thom then went on to release his debut EP ‘Still Standing in the Unknown’, before travelling and playing across Australia to hone his skills. His debut album ‘Hedgehog’, released on Warner Music, set the talented artist on the path of international success.
