Tom Anthony Presents Debut Album ‘Little Morsels’


With his monumental debut album, Tom Anthony is gratifying his artistic cravings after a 15-year break. During the COVID-19 pandemic, he rediscovers his love for music by taking up an old, worn guitar and learning all the things he had forgotten. He started writing songs soon after and has been writing and recording Little Morsels for the past three years.


Singer-songwriter Tom Anthony, who describes his style as "rock & roll for grownups," is back with the release of Little Morsels, his debut album. The upbeat selection of songs incorporates elements of punk, indie-rock, indie, and singer-songwriter sounds. Tom Anthony is the producer and writer of the production, which features a good blend of fast punk rock to acoustic ballads with electric guitar (Fender Telecaster and Stratocaster), acoustic guitar (Martin OM-21), bass guitar (Sire Marcus Miller), drums, and vocals.


Tom Anthony drew inspiration for the song topics from his surroundings and observations of contemporary life, encompassing themes such as social media and control, the necessity of creating personal space, and perseverance and hopefulness in the face of adversity. Although he has drawn inspiration from a wide variety of musicians, he believes that the artists that are most evident on this record are Ryan Adams, Radiohead during The Bends, Oasis, The Beatles, The National, The Darkness, Jeff Buckley, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, The Smiths, Green Day, Bloc Party, The La's, and The Strokes.


As an independent artist, Tom Anthony is excited to share his musical journey with the world, make great records, and put on the best show in town. His songs offer optimism and a fresh viewpoint in an era of divide and pessimism by telling stories of real life, real events, and the highs and lows of the world around us. Little Morsels demonstrates his musical skill while emphasising his sincerity, ardour, and dedication to the advancement of art.


“This album will always be very special to me. It's a document of my return to the thing I love to do, and I'm delighted it actually made it out into the world. It took me years to make, and in a little under 40 minutes, you'll hear the result of all that work,” Tom Anthony comments on the release.
