HEY! LISTEN: Tom Wardle -- "Pink Lillies"

There are a lot of ways to make a living as a musician, but Tom Wardle has cornered a very particular market. The English singer-songwriter is well-known in the Hamptons, making the rounds after moving to New York in 2017. The summer of 2018 found Tom performing with Grammy award winners Bryan Adams and Michael Bolton at events in New York, as well as personally being asked by fashion icon Donna Karan to play at her private New Years Eve party in Turks and Caicos.

Wardle's warm, gravelly voice has brough him to the mountains of Aspen, the sun-drenched mansions of Beverly Hills, and parties on Lake Geneva, Switzerland as well as the Royal Polo in Oxfordshire, England, Tom’s soulful voice is a fixture at high-end events around the globe. But this singer the stars is just as appealing as the rest of us, as can be seen in "Pink Lillies."

"Pink Lillies" is the wry retelling of a lover's spat that continues in spite of the narrator's best efforts. The song showcases Wardle's pipes, ideal for the kind of soulful pop he specializes in. Wardle allows the scene to unspool gradually, proving he's earned his recognition as a talented songwriter. The band breathes life into the song with winsome steel guitars and an understated approach to the narrator's foibles.

Tom’s brand new record Jacqueline was initially produced by Ivor Novello-winner Chris Difford of legendary British new wave band Squeeze over in London, and finished was off by Wardle and member’s of Brian Wilson’s band in LA. .The record also features musicians from David Bowie’s and Tom Jones’ band. Tom played his first New York City gig in February 2019 at the Brooklyn Bowl.
