Tom Jay Williams is the fresh new voice and face of Australian pop.
A 21 year old singer/songwriter from Adelaide, Tom came to national attention via 2008 Australian Idol where he was the youngest ever top ten finalist.
His signature tune from Idol, Don’t Want To Miss A Thing, has already been played over 150,000 times on MySpace.
Whether influenced by his natural maturity and musicianship, or the whole Idol experience, there are few performers of his age and demographic that are as dynamic and engaging as Tom.
As well as vocals, Tom also plays piano and guitar.
There is constant demand for new material and tour dates from Tom’s legions of online fans. Tom has had to create a team to deal with the huge level of fan traffic. His social networking assets span Australia and the US.
Tom has national management and has already opened for John Farnham, and on March 13, 2010 appeared at the Clipsal 500 V8 carnival in a bill dubbed ‘The Idols’ with Shannon Noll, Stan Walker and Jessica Mauboy. Further, January 9 2011 saw Tom perform at the “Idol Factor” with James Johnston, Joel Turner and Hayley Teal.
More recently, Tom has opened for growing Adelaide band At Sunset in 2012 and has also opened for world sensation 5 Seconds of Summer at their Adelaide show on June 6, 2013. The high fan interest at these shows had pushed management into planning Tom’s own headline shows.
On March 26, 2014 it was announced that Tom will be joining Andrew and Harrison Kantarias to be the newest member of growing band At Sunset in an announcement that sent Australian and International social media into overdrive. With new music in the works and live performances planned for the band, you’ll need to strap in tight – you’re up for a wild ride with Tom and At Sunset!
