TOM PRIOR – SINGLE REVIEW

Tom Prior – Don’t Worry 
Tom Prior - Don't Worry



Release Date: Out Now

One thing I like about a lot of emerging artists these days is their willingness to see past genres or pigeon holes when it comes to choosing their influences. Enfield lad Tom Prior is no different as he cites the Kinks, Coldplay and Kanye West among the artists that have inspired him. Prior’s new single, ‘Don’t Worry’, is a mix of influences and experiences that create a tender, Ed Sheeran-esque tune that is delivered like a Cockney Eminem before the chorus shows off the singer’s more soulful tones. Melodically this is simple and honest stuff with real heart and the ability to pull at the heart strings so when you start to listen to the lyrics that tell of a father’s guilt of not being around for his kid, well, there must be something in my eye. I really like this tune but I don’t think this will be the one to break Tom Prior in to the mainstream – he’s not far off though and this will be a useful tune to have in his arsenal for showing off his more tender side.



Live Dates:


30th November – Sebright Arms, London
