In 2011 Dorset singer songwriter Tom Clements made a life changing decision. He decided to quit his day job and follow his true passion in life - music.
And he hasn’t done too badly at it. Since then the talented musician has played more than 500 gigs, released two EP’s and a debut album.
Tom, who says his influences include Mark Knopfler, Lindsay Buckingham and Paul Weller, also reached the quarter finals of the Dorset Music Awards in 2012.
Last year he was chosen to open a show for local guitar legend and former member of The Pretenders, Robbie McIntosh, who’s also toured with Paul McCartney. Tom’s new EP Live at The David Hall is out now, and available on iTunes and Amazon.
