Tom Fitzpatrick (music)

Eastbourne swing singer and crooner Tom Fitzpatrick is going from strength to strength recently and his great year might just be topped by his very first radio interview being broadcast by Uckfield FM this Thursday evening. He will be talking about his new mini-album of self-penned songs and we will get to hear a play of his new single 'K.I.S.S.I.N.G' and also the follow-up, Sugar Girl. There is a humorous video to accompany K.I.S.S.I.N.G. on Tom's YouTube channel. The six track album will be released early this year and showcases a change in direction for Tom towards a more contemporary funk/swing sound. However, he won't be ditching the crooning - 2013 will also see him begin gigging with his Trio, which includes drummer Ollie Boorman.   

Apparently the youngest crooner in the UK, Tom is only 21 but is already gigging extensively around the South of England and London. He has even performed a couple of times on Broadway! Tom sang with a six-piece band at Eastbourne Bandstand last summer as the Michael Buble tribute act and will be returning there again at the end of August 2013 for a repeat performance. But in the meantime, you can find Tom singing at Chapter 12 in Hailsham in April.
