Tom Wardle is an English singer/songwriter hailing from Nottingham, performing around the world and is a sought after performer across the Hamptons, after moving across the pond to Los Angeles and then New York in 2017. An acclaimed songwriter too, Rolling Stone magazine named Tom’s new single “Jacqueline” as their Song You Need To Know in March 2019. The summer of 2018 has seen Tom perform with Grammy award winners Bryan Adams and Michael Bolton at events in New York, as well as personally being asked by fashion icon Donna Karan to play at her private New Years Eve party in Turks and Caicos.
Specializing in performing upbeat pop, rock and soul, Tom’s powerful voice is often compared to Rod Stewart, with luxury lifestyle Hamptons Magazine calling him “perfect music for a summers evening”. His lively one-man acoustic shows with loop and harmony pedals have proved popular with music fans, with Tom previously holding residencies at some of London’s most famous night spots, including Richard Branson’s The Roof Gardens in Kensington, as well as appearing as VIP entertainment at soccer matches at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
From performing in mountains of Aspen to the sun-drenched mansions of Beverly Hills, to singing at parties on Lake Geneva, Switzerland to the Royal Polo in Oxfordshire, England, Tom’s soulful voice is a fixture at high-end events around the globe.
As well as being a well seasoned performer, Wardle’s songwriting has been hailed by Rolling Stone magazine, with his singles being played on BBC Radio 2, the UK’s largest radio station, as well as a live session on BBC Introducing to over one million listeners, with single “Jacqueline” gaining airtime on the highly rated BBC 6 Music.
Tom’s brand new record “Jacqueline” began in London in 2017 with Ivor Novello winner Chris Difford of Squeeze producing. One year and a transatlantic move later Tom hooked up with Brian Wilson (Beach Boys) collaborator and producer Scott Bennett to finish the record off in Hollywood, California. The record features musicians from David Bowie’s, Brian Wilson’s and Tom Jones’ band. Tom played his first New York City gig in February 2019 at the Brooklyn Bowl.
