Tom Morley is a strikingly tall, curly haired singer/songwriter from the suburban town of Fleet, Hampshire. He now lives and works in South East London. From his leafy Woolwich recording studio ‘Saccharin’, Tom reflects ‘In the past 18 months I’ve been writing a lot, exploring ideas around how we connect, or fail to connect, with the world around us. It’s a recurrent realisation that we ourselves are nature too; sickly hunks of meat dressed up in civilisation.’
‘We have an amazing view of the River Thames and have filled the studio with plants - it feels like the closest to nature we can be in a London studio. An urban oasis.’
Tom grew up playing in guitar bands and nurtured a songwriting obsession. Since studying at Goldsmiths University, Tom has released music under various aliases, attracting attention online. His wistful track ‘IWITW’ made it to #4 in Spotify’s ‘Global Viral Chart’ and led him to opening a rainy Bestival main stage.
Citing the likes of Vampire Weekend and Fleet Foxes as influences, Easypeel uses both direct and abstract lyricism, blending intimate acoustic guitar, gritty electrics and earthy clarinet to create a sound sticky with moreish sentimentality.
