EP review: TOM WEBBER – Stop and Think About It

Tom Webber

Facebook [Release date 16.10.21]

Debut release by Oxfordshire based singer songwriter Tom Webber. Despite his youthful age his music takes the listener back to the late 50’s/early 60’s when artists like the Everly Brothers, the Drifters and Sam Cooke were all over the airwaves. Or for a more modern comparison, Sheffield’s Richard Hawley.

‘Martha’ is the pick of the bunch, with Tom Webber’s crooning vocals complemented well by the backing singers. This song and ‘Still Got My Pride’ are ideal for airplay and if played on a radio station like Boom Radio would prove to be hits.

The title track is a neat bit of doo wop with a lovely bit of guitar playing. The production on the EP is very good quality with a pin drop quality on the various instruments. ‘Words I Love To Hear’ sees the EP end on a gentle note.

Clocking in a just under fourteen minutes it is over all too soon, but these four songs show this lad has talent and with more gigs and music he may well achieve his aim of being a full time musician. ****
