Soulful singer-songwriter Tom Walker is a musician ascending to great heights. His vocal is as desirable as the guitar and piano melodies which accompany him. ‘Just You and I’ was irresistibly soul-stirring and ‘Blessings’ further instils a sense of anticipation for his debut album. “We’re counting our blessings, ’cause we’ve got friends to lean on” Walker emotionally croons and goes on to deliver more lines which offer moments of reflection. Such simple sober reminders prove ineffective unless the source of such wisdom delivers them with artistic gravitas. Tom Walker does this and more; he’ll have you under his spell from the first note.
