Tom Moriarty London gigs

Moriarty simply jacked everything in and returned to his first, and true, love making music. Gifted since early childhood, the Cambridge, London School of Economics and Music Institute, Los Angeles-graduated talent quickly came to the attention of über-producer Ian Grimble (Travis, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Cure, KT Tunstall, Mumford & Sons). Grimble whipped Tom into Abbey Roads famous Studio 2 and a gorgeous album – Fire In The Dolls House – was born.
Quickly drawing very favourable critics comparisons with John Martyn, Eddie Vedder, Tom Waits and even Bruce Springsteen, Moriarty landed a distribution deal with Universal Musics Absolute arm. Journalists purred; Radio presenters raved – with BBC Londons Robert Elms even describing Moriarty as a pearl amongst oysters.
With a hugely successful ongoing first Wednesday of the month residency at West Londons trendy Elgin (where The Clash cut their teeth but an altogether more classy night out in 2011) and features and sessions across all media in the very recent past, Tom Moriarty is clearly a man with something to say and September 5th sees the release of a single so instant in appeal it should be banned. Lifes A Mystery has been remixed by ultra hot top producer (Duffy, Jon Allen) Tristan Longworth and can be heard on your radio like, now!
If you like Ben Harper and Ray Lamontagne, youll love this!
