Another privately released album. Tom was born in Surrey and lives in Epsom. His music style is heavily influenced by ragtime guitarists and finger style folk guitarists of the past. There are 15 tracks - all written by N B Lawrence -who also gets the credit for vocals and guitar. .
lt’s what I would call an ‘old fashioned’ CD - just voice and guitar - so any deficiencies are very obvious. His vocal prowess is limited, rather breathy, and reminiscent of Bert Jansch - but the songs are nowhere near as good as Bert’s. As an example, ‘Boscastle’ (which is about the recent flooding disaster), has an inappropriate tune and reminds me of an incredible String Band song. He is though an excellent guitarist and the accompaniments and instrumentals are very well played.
