Track Review – ‘Blessings’ by Tom Walker

It’s no secret that Tom Walker is one of my favourite live acts, he’s an absolute dream to see in the flesh. Born in Scotland and raised in Manchester (the opposite to my father) he’s a recent signing to Sony’s Relentless Records.

Tom’s guitar playing is proper ridiculous – as in toe-curlingly good! With a rock/reggae edge, Blessings is utterly flawless from Tom’s rich gravelly vocals, the chord combination, the beat, and the lyrics to this tune are so catchy it will cause an epidemic of awesomeness!

Blessings is about well, counting your blessings, and enjoying the little things in life with the people you love. The mention of FIFA and an ice cold beer put me in mind of many a Friday night with the lads at mine and made me smile at the memories. It’s already stuck in my head and we’ll be singing our wee hearts out when we see Tom at King Tuts next month!

Blessings is the first track from the Blessings EP which is available to pre- order right now on iTunes with a release date of the 12th May!
