Half Moon presents:
The Tomicks - A Debut Album Launch with special guests
Entry Requirements: 18+ after 7pm
The Tomicks are a new rock n' roll band. Hugely inspired by the '60s and '70s, Tom Cridland, Nick Whitehead and Debs Marx came together with the aim of recapturing the magic of pop music from those decades and bringing it into the 21st Century.
The Tomicks are a rock n’ roll band. Tom Cridland, met his girlfriend, business partner and bandmate, Debs Marx, at Uni and, on graduating in 2014, they started an eponymous sustainable fashion brand, which has since been regularly featured in the press for The 30 Year Sweatshirt and making clothing for the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Daniel Craig. This business success allowed Tom to fund his passion: writing songs.
Tom is a flamboyant personality, who wears outrageous colourful clothing and sings lead vocals whilst playing drums that are parked at the front of the stage. His struggles with alcohol and life in London have often informed his lyrics, and, before meeting Nick Whitehead, a virtuoso piano player from Manchester, he had never found someone sharing his passion for old school pop, rock and soul music. Their songwriting partnership is the heart and soul of The Tomicks.
The band have just recorded their first album at the legendary Village Recorder in LA. The studio has played host many of The Tomicks' inspirations, including the Eagles, John Lennon and The Band, who, like The Tomicks, featured a singing drummer, the late Levon Helm.
The Tomicks will release this LP on February 22nd and will play it live, in full for the first time ever at the legendary Half Moon to celebrate!
Tom: “The Half Moon is so iconic and it’s been played by some of our biggest inspirations like The Rolling Stones and The Who. We are so excited to launch our first record, which we are so proud of, at this legendary rock n’ roll venue."
