Tom Fowkes is a folk singer and multi-instrumentalist based in Tasmania. Beginning with an improvised vocal and guitar skeleton, the songs are layered with generous instrumentation and vocal harmonies. His simple, heartfelt, acoustic performances have been fondly received on the island, while more elaborate recordings have captivated audiences across the globe. 
 Tom's latest song 'Closure' remises a wounded past in an attempt to recollect and understand. “Closure was a cathartic song to write, and one I almost didn’t release because of its vulnerable nature... Originally it was only meant to be an acoustic recording, but after improvising in the studio, the additional instrumentation supported and lifted the song into something more empowered.”
