I perform as an acoustic singer-songwriter, either solo or as a duo. If you’d like to book me for a gig, please email tomslattermusic AT

One man and a guitar? Does that work? Your recorded music doesn’t sound like that.

Yes it does work! Here’s a live ‘bootleg’ that proves it:



Here is what others have said about my live show:

“Tom is an engaging singer with a resonant voice and an unorthodox songwriter whose songs push the boundaries of what can be expected from the solo acoustic guitar troubadour, straying into the darkest of corners. There is a strange mind at work here but one that makes for a compelling and fascinating listen.” – The Progressive Aspect

“…Both descriptions ring true but fail to pinpoint the cheerfully pulpy weird-fiction exuberance of Tom’s work as a one-man band. He’s a man not just happily out of his time, but making a virtue of it – a latter-day Victorian street-theatre barker with a guitar promising tales of mystery, imagination, ‘orrible murders and bloody great waving tentacles.” – Misfit City 

“Laced with tales, dark humour and sardonic introductions, he went for it, he entertained and the small but enthusiastic audience appreciated.” – Tony Colvill

Here are a couple of recent gig videos:
