Tom’s Sound Of Heaven features a fresh-wave of EDM-inspired worship. Aimed for the church and it’s young people. His EP is described as “Mutemath took Calvin Harris to church”. The songs explode with excitement.
“Tom worships with his life as well as his songs,” says Mike Pilavachi. “And the songs are good – very good. I love the songs, but even more, I love that for Tom, it is more than about the songs. Tom is a creative, authentic and humble guy.”
“I’ve known and worked with Tom for over eight years,” shares Tim Hughes, “He is one of the kindest, most servant-hearted and passionate people I know. These songs burst with life and heart; songs to be screamed out at festivals and blasted through stereos. This is just the start for Tom.”
