The past 12 months has seen Tom Chaplin step out from the multi-platinum selling band Keane to both critical and commercial acclaim, with his extraordinary debut solo album ‘The Wave’ entering the UK Album Chart at Number 3 and being hailed by critics everywhere.
‘The Wave’ charts Tom’s painful journey to sobriety in an honest and uplifting way. From the opening bars Tom takes us on a cinematic journey through life’s ups and downs that although has some dark moments, ultimately is a life affirming and joyous listen.
As Tom says himself, “The Wave is not a concept album but there is a narrative arc, from the depths of despair to a kind of resolution.” New single, the soaring, anthemic ‘See It So Clear’ articulates that resolution perfectly bringing to a close a campaign that has seen Tom firmly establish himself as one of the UK’s biggest stars.
Powered by his extraordinary voice, Tom has played unforgettable sessions for Jo Whiley, Dermot O’Leary, The Sun, and on Later with Jools Holland where his band effortlessly swapped instruments recreating the lush, emotional sound of the album.
Recently announced as the main support to Jeff Lynne’s ELO (including a show at Wembley Stadium on the 24th June), Tom headlines 15 dates of his own in May accompanied by his amazing band- Sebastian Sternberg, Rosie Langley, Tobie Tripp and Beau Holland.
Following an incredible journey, these shows mark the end of The Wave for Tom as he moves into a new phase and new music.
