About Tom Baxter

One of the most distinguished songwriters of the 21st century is set to make his long-awaited album return this August, as Tom Baxter unveils his first official release in a decade, The Other Side of Blue.   It was in 2008 that Baxter released the self-funded Skybound - the follow-up to his debut Feather & Stone - which first alerted the wider world to his singular talent for honest and emotionally immersive composition. Baxter made his name with such heart-stopping originals as 'Better', 'Almost There' and 'Day in Verona', all the while being acclaimed by peers such as Tom Waits and Rufus Wainwright. Since then, he's released one fan-only album, travelled the world, been through plenty of soul-searching and emerged at the other end with what may well be his best work ever.  The Other Side of Blue is Baxter's most searingly personal work to date; performed entirely solo and with gorgeous illustration on guitar and piano. It's a beautiful and elegant return to his very core as a songwriter and a human being. “I feel like I've been though a very slow metamorphosis over the years,” he says. “Even I'm not sure into what, but I can say I'm calmer inside, and I thought it was time for a full-on new release.” The new album is entirely free of “production camouflage,” as he puts it, and is underpinned by 'The Ballad of Davey Graham,' the song he was inspired to write after a request to play at the unveiling of a blue plaque for the great guitar pioneer of the title. In a moment of pure serendipity, Davey's partner had written to request Tom's contribution because Graham was not only an admirer of his, but she revealed that Baxter's music was the last that Davey had listened to. Not that of Paul Simon, Jimmy Page or any of the other superstars he had inspired, but Tom Baxter. 'The Other Side Of Blue' will be released via The Orchard on August 17 2018
