TOM AUTON Supported by MANTIS and ADERYN. Playing live shows since the young age of 13, the 24 year old rock artist from Cardiff has supported artists such as Feeder, Jack Savoretti, and has shared festival stages with the likes of Jake Bug and The Kooks. Tom's 2018 single ‘Mother Mary’ recently surpassed 1,200,000 streams and has established him as one of the UK’s most exciting up and coming rock acts. Backed up by over 15,000 mostly listeners on Spotify alone, Tom’s fan-base is expanding rapidly. Taking 2023 head on, with 4 new singles and an EP coming in his back pocket, to be released in the 3rd & 4th quarter of the year, those 15,000 monthly listeners are set to gain a few more 0’s on the end. Producing and mixing all his own music at his home studio, Tom has shown that it’s possible to take hold of your own sound and craft it into something exhilarating. Inspiring other artists and bands to do the same with in-depth mix breakdowns of his songs on YouTube. Confirming this excitement, he’s had considerable support from Official Spotify Playlists, Sirius XM, Amazing Radio, BBC Radio Wales, & Jack Saunders (Radio 1). This is a standing event, with limited seating. ~ "The young singer songwriter should fill out a deed poll and change his name to The Alchemist - as everything he touches turns to gold.” - David Owens, Music Critic. www.tomauton.com ~ MANTIS - Mantis are based in Cardiff, Cymru with elements of psychedelia, garage rock, Spaghetti Western and World music.
