Thomas J Speight

“There ain’t no use in lying to you.”
In the States, the long lost (but not forgotten!) CD single kicked the bucket years ago.  I remember the days when browsing the singles rack at Target and (R.I.P) Sam Goody was, at the very least, a regular weekly activity when I was really just a child at 9 and 10 years old.  The UK, however, has kept the much loved tradition alive.  London’s Thomas J Speight, the most recent young songwriter to knock me off my feet and land me in a spot miles away, will release his first single late summer/early fall. Speight’s obviously introspective demeanor on “This House” calls to mind the wistful, yet somehow still free and easy, tenor of Pneumonia-era Whiskeytown.  It’s just one of the those tracks the world really ought to know about.  Nothing is available to purchase at the present…but you’ll know as soon as I do.  A small smattering of London shows carries Thomas through the months of June and July until he rounds out the summer with a set of weekend gigs at Gloucestershire’s Bloom Festival in mid-August.
