Tom Robinson Releases ‘Only The Now’
New Album Out October

Special guests appearing on the record include John Grant, Billy Bragg, Martin Carthy, Colin Firth, Nadine Shah, Lee Forsyth Griffiths Lisa Knapp, Sir Ian McKellen, TV Smith, and Nitin Sawhney.

Inspired by the new music he has heard through his 6 Music show, Tom Robinson has returned with his first new album in twenty years
‘Only The Now’ a record made with award-winning producer and multi-instrumentalist Gerry Diver.

The songs are as vibrant and edgy as any he’s ever written: the sound of a veteran craftsman – drawing on his long, rich fund of experience – with a renewed energy and purpose. The first track taken from the album ‘Don’t Jump, Don’t Fall’ is already out and features guest vocals from Mancunian artist Lee Forsyth Griffths.

Tom plays many festivals this summer including Glastonbury, Latitude, Wickham and Green Man. He also plays a showcase at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall in September and a 15 date tour with Kitten Pyramid throughout October and November.
