In today’s podcast we chat to Tom Peel, bassist with English singer-songwriter James Bay.
James Bay shot to stardom with the release of his debut album, Chaos and The Calm, back in 2015. Recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, the album debuted at number one in the UK and cemented Bay’s reputation as an incredible songwriter. But as with all bands that emerge as if from nowhere, the backstory often proves more extensive than you might expect. Tom Peel’s journey has been a steady and assured one, from a natural inclination towards music as a young lad through to playing festivals and rock arenas all over the world.
In this episode you're going to learn:
All about Tom’s career path to date.
What it was like hearing Chaos and The Calm for the first time.
How he handles the pressure of performing for live TV.
Why he no longer tours with his vintage bass gear.
As you can probably tell... I'm so excited to release this to you! Give it a listen and then, and if you’re up for it, leave the show a review in iTunes…
… It costs nothing, and it’d mean the world to me because it helps other bass players who are interested in listening and learning from some of the best players in the world to find the show and start making progress.
