His first two albums are filled with raw, confessional songs about love, sorrow and growing from a boy into a man.
Despite critical acclaim and an army of loyal fans, Baxter never achieved the commercial success he deserved and disappeared from view.
The singer/songwriter took time out to rediscover his passion for the guitar and love of song-writing.
He went on a journey that took him from the wilds of Devon, through the foothills of India and the mountains of Southern Spain. He ended up in California, where he began making his long-awaited third album
Monday night (11th March) is the first opportunity to hear songs from that album, The Uncarved Block – Part One (as well as some old favourites); stripped back, acoustic and vulnerable – the way Baxter has always liked to share his soul on stage.
is the first date on Tom Baxter's tour of the UK and also the first chance to buy The Uncarved Block – Part One,
which will be sold exclusively on tour alongside his most recent EP release, Golden.
Support will be provided by two of Baxter's old friends, Sam Semple (who plays percussion in Tom"s band) and Sam Walker, who co-wrote the Tom Baxter anthem, "Better" – a song which was covered by Boyzone (but don"t let that put you off!)
Whether you are already a fan or yet to discover this neglected talent for the first time, get along to Komedia Brighton to have your heart strings pulled and celebrate the return of Tom Baxter.
