Release: Thomas J Speight Announces Exclusive Free Download Via Killing Moon
London born and bred poetic, heartfelt folkster Thomas J Speight has graced Killing Moon the honor of making new and beautiful track Never Loved You More available as a free download.
Speight spent his youth indulging in the musical greats – The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, The Shins and Joni Mitchell, and the calibre of such influences is certainly reflecting in his songwriting – elegant, beautiful and haunting.
Thomas J Speight – Willow Tree
At the tender age of 12, Speight cut his teeth in songwriting and then moving on to a string of bands before honing his talents as a solo artists a few years ago.
Speight, whose debut album is scheduled for release next year, has already enjoyed prominent success with his 2010 debut EP ‘Willow Tree’ (through Young & Lost Club, home to Noah & The Whale and Johnny Flynn). The EP was produced by Tim Rice-Oxley and Jesse Quin (Mt Desolation and Keane) and was received with widespread acclaim from numerous sources regarding its delicate arrangements and astute lyrics including peer Ryan Adams, stating the overall sound was “so beautiful”.
Thomas J Speight – The River
He has also took to the stage with some big names including Mumford and Sons, Ed Sheeran, Jake Bugg and Fionn Regan to name but a few. Not only that, but he’s also collaborated with some high pedigree acts including Keane, The Staves and Stephen Fretwell. And, as if that isn’t enough to boast about, he’s only gone and bagged himself a support slot with Travis on their UK tour, commencing on the 19th October in Bristol.
Thomas J Speight really is one to watch, and teases with the delightful Never Loved You More, leaving us aching to see what else he has in store. And you don’t have to take our world for it, support comes in the form of none other than Sir Paul McCartney, who even owns a Thomas J Speight t-shirt and endorses that all eyes and ears should be on Speight for the future.
