The mantle of UK Piano Man has been dominated by Elton John, Jools Holland and Jamie Cullum. Over the past five decades no one else has come remotely close – until now that is! Tom Seals ‘from Crewe’ represented the UK on National Day at the Dubai Expo in Feb 2022, performing in front of HRH Prince William. Last weekend, he performed the National Anthem to King Charles 111 for the first time at Crewe Alex Football ground.
Fresh from his sell-out “Let The Good Times Roll” Tour – Tom Seals, “quite possibly the future of Jazz/Blues and Pop”, has the world at his fingertips. His virtuoso solo-ing, excellent improvisation skills and distinctive voice have left top industry officials hailing him the UK’s finest boogie woogie and blues pianist/vocalist. Summer 2022 included festivals and shows all over Europe with the Sicilia Jazz Festival being a highlight with an 18 piece band.
Tom has worked with and supported established artists such as Jools Holland, Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter, Dame Cleo Laine, Hugh Laurie, KT Tunstall and Matt Lucas.
Hot on the heels of sold out shows across the globe including Ronnie Scott’s in London and a stunning performance at the Birdland Jazz Club on Broadway New York, Tom Seals’ star is destined to soar stratospherically with the release of a new album, EP and live dates worldwide.
Following the success of Tom’s lockdown shows, Sky TV offered Tom a 13-week series. Each week Tom chat’s to celebrity guests about their 3 favourite songs. He and his band then put their own jazzy/bluesy spin on the celebrities’ choices. Guests included Anton Du Beke, David Coulthard, Georgia “Toff” Toffolo, Ruby Turner, Russell Watson, Carole Baskin, Toyah, Tom Grennan, Sir Kenny Dalglish, Stephen K Amos, Diane Abbott, Tom Allen and Ricky Wilson of Kaiser Chiefs.
The live version of “Tom Seals Presents…” continues to grow, with guests including Noddy Holder, Jo Brand, Whispering Bob Harris, Chris Difford, James Acaster, Robert Lindsay and a very successful run at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2021 with different celebrities every night.
