Interview on BBC Devon
Mp3 version of BBC Devon session (15 mins, 8.9Mb).
I was interview on John Govier's show on BBC Devon on the 15th of January. The show went really well and was great fun! I played a short acoustic session featuring Always be There and Early Morning Blues. We talked about music in the South West, and ended the show with a newly recorded track called "New Feeling".
BBC Devon have a great section on their Website entitled Devon Demos. From here you can find out about lots of South West bands, plus listen to mp3s of their tracks... You can also view an interview and track from Tom. To hear an mp3 version of the BBC session, click here.
