You don’t need to shout to be heard. I have just heard this song by a singer/songwriter called Tom Rosenthal that is stunningly beautiful in its simplicity.
The tune is called ‘The Depressed Milkman’ and I played it after seeing that a family friend Lewis Greenham had played it on Soundcloud earlier tonight (thanks Lewis). I played it unsure of what I was going to hear and man oh man – this song just reached out to me in all its melancholy bliss. A tale so wonderfully British yet in a language that reaches all shores.
I’ve no idea whether Tom is a bright light, an up’n'coming star or a big hitter music-industry-wise (though I prefer the term ‘Music Community’ much more). I just know I played this song three times in a row and absolutely love it. To me that’s all that matters: I connected, I loved it, I’ll be back for more.
Do you know Tom’s music? Tell us more about him please…
