After his debut release ‘‘Dreaming of Forever’, Tom's following grew rapidly, and in April 2019, he became an official BBC featured artist, with his track ‘‘Hiraeth’. In February 2019, Tom started working closely with Sonder House Music, led by stellar musician Kyle McEvoy. Since then, Tom has released many singles, with ‘‘Hopedale’ appearing on SonderHouse's ‘‘Recollections Vol.3’, which was featured in Spotify's mega Peaceful Piano and Instrumental Study playlists. He also released his debut EP ‘‘Bliss’ and his latest album ‘My Happy Place’ through the SonderHouse label.

Tom started 3 side projects in April 2020: ‘‘Les Mémoires’ (live solo piano recorded in Tom’s home studio), '‘The Felt Diaries’, released by 1631, portraying the delicate felted piano, and ‘‘LiFo”, a new Jazzhop Project. Since then, Tom has signed on to many other labels, including Andante Piano and Yellow Rose Records, and releases music under his own self-exclusive label Hammer and String for 6 of his monikers.
