The mantle of UK Piano Man has been dominated by Elton John, Jools Holland and Jamie Cullum. Over the past five decades no one else has come remotely close – until now that is!
Fresh from his sell-out "Let The Good Times Roll" Tour – Tom Seals, "quite possibly the future of Jazz/Blues and Pop", has the world at his fingertips. His virtuoso solo-ing, excellent improvisation skills and distinctive voice have left top industry officials hailing him the UK's finest boogie woogie and blues pianist/vocalist.
Tom has worked with and supported established artists such as Jools Holland, Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter, Mo Pleasure, Dame Cleo Laine, Cerys Matthews, DJ Trevor Nelson, Daniel Bedingfield, Kenny Thomas, Tony Christie, Lance Ellington, Sad Cafe and Joe Stilgoe.
Still only in his mid-twenties, Seals is surely destined for greatness. Hot on the heels of sold out shows across the globe including Pizza Express Jazz Club Soho in London and a stunning performance at the Birdland Jazz Club on Broadway New York, Tom Seals' star is destined to soar stratospherically in 2020 with the release of a new album, EP and live dates worldwide that include a headline slot at London's legendary Ronnie Scotts.
Tom had to put his degree studies at Paul McCartney's LIPA on hold after his 2017 debut EP, "Where I'm At (Live)", soared to #1 in the UK Blues Charts. A career highlight was performing a '1 piano – 4 hands' version of "Route 66" with Jamie Cullum and appearing at Jools Hollands' Boogie Woogie & Blues Spectacular in Canary Wharf.
Tom has performed at festivals worldwide, including: Montreux Jazz (Switzerland), Glastonbury, Dranouter (Belgium), Once In A Blue Moon (Holland), Utcazene (Hungary), Festival Musique (France), Sparoi (Ireland), Blue Balls (Switzerland), Cropredy, Black Deer, Bestival, Boomtown, Cheltenham Jazz, Swanage Blues, Marsden Jazz, HopFest, Harpenden Blues, Dereham Blues and Ilfracombe Blues.
Venue appearances include: Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, Pizza Express Jazz Club, The 606 Club, The Lowry, The Crazy Coqs, Blackpool Grand Theatre, Matt & Phreds, The Cinnamon Club, Ain't Nothin' But The Blues, Boisdale, Piano Rouge (Krakow), Piano's NYC, Rockwood Music Hall (New York City), Birdland Jazz Club (New York City), Orange Peel Jazz Club (Hong Kong), North Sea Jazz Club (Amsterdam), Club Dauphine (Amsterdam) and many more.
