In 1994 Tom moved to London, where he studied Harp and Composition at Trinity College of Music, his tutors including Sioned Williams and Darryl Runswick. He won prizes for Harp and Improvisation, including the United Kingdom Harp Association Award in 1996, and gained an honours degree in 1998.
During his time in London, Tom has continued to perform in many areas of music, his work including solo recitals, orchestral and ensemble work, session recording and street theatre. He has played and recorded with acclaimed London band Tearso, and is extending his research into electronic music and recording: he released the first CD of his original music, Mothmusic Volume One, in 2000, and his second album, Scar Diaries, in 2001.
Tom's electronics-based music, under the name of his collective, Lunamoth, has featured in releases on the Big Square Records label, the quirky Squirrels, Yeah! receiving a particularly good response. He has also composed and played harp music for the film Eidollen, directed by Michelle Cherfan, and for Glenn Mortimer's plays Heads, staged at the Young Vic, London, and Better, which was presented by the Spare Parts Theatre Company at The Rosemary Branch Theatre.
In 2005, Lunamoth's cover of Björk's song Army of Me, featuring vocals by Tamara Stein and Gary Martin, was chosen by Björk and her associates as one of the tracks to be released on her charity album Army of Me - Remixes & Covers, in aid of the tsunami relief work of UNICEF.
In addition to his classical harp recitals, Tom has regularly played with London-based singer/songwriter Paul Mosley, and with the Czech alternative electronic musician and singer/songwriter Eva Eden, and continues to front Lunamoth in composing, recording and live appearances.
Currently, Tom is touring and recording with the chart-topping, award-winning band Florence & The Machine.
