From Big Little Glass Bowl EP
Cardiff based singer-songwriter Tom Auton takes first place not only with his sell-out headline shows, he also holds the title for best artist in nation-wide talent contests. Prizes included massive radio play on major stations which gave him the kick-start needed to reach this level of musicianship. Now as he sits on the newly released Big Little Glass Bowl EP, the songs speak for themselves which serve to create extra exposure. Even the iconic guitar maker Fender included Tom on their top ten list of undiscovered artists. Something tells me he won't qualify for that these days, he's already established and making the right sounds.
With a hard hitting power-chord riff, heavy rock n' roll surges from the silence. Rhythmic vocal lines add an extra percussive quality to the catchy beat. Frantic guitar licks throw left and right as cracking drums slenderly break the song into its manageable chunks. Talented musical composition in adequately bridled doses give a flavour of the heavy rock sound and as the music simmers on medium heat, the progression gradually allows the piece to extend beyond itself.
