If you'd like to get an idea of what to expect from Tom Kerswill's music - or find out where he's coming from musically, then read on.
I've collected info on some key bands and artists... all these come highly recommended!
This Brighton-based band are one of the best live acts you'll see. You might remember them for songs like "Beautiful Day" and "One way of Life", but their back-catalogue extends over 10 years and as many albums. The music is powerful, with a message, but catchy at the same time. Highly recommended!More Info Official Site
His debut album is amazing, and he's even better live. Of all the music listed here, his is probably the most similar to Tom Kerswill's. One thing is immediately noticeable - hear any of the songs only once and you'll find it's instantly stuck in your head. Great stuff.More Info Official Site
Beautiful drum-and-bass music. Some great songs, with haunting lyrics and melody. They've got several albums out and their live shows are unbeatable.More Info www.lambstar.net
A tragic genius... unrecognised until long after his death in the 70s. The music is minimalistic, with firm emphasis on vocals and guitars. The lyrics are haunting.More Info
He may be poppy, but David Gray's brand of acoustic guitar and piano with synths and drum machines is infectious and impressive.More Info Official Site
Scottish band... seminal album is "100 Broken Windows" (released in 2000). They claim to be poets - and the first rock musicians to unleash postmodernism on an unsuspecting public with their single "These Wooden Ideas". The Remote Part (2002) is their latest album, widely proclaimed as a poetic work of genius.More Info www.idlewild.co.uk
A strange mixture of intense, jazzy piano and unusual voice. This music is slightly different to anything you've heard before and has a lot of character.More Info www.rufuswainwright.com
