About Thomas 甘 Kam

I am  a singer/songwriter, writer and performer. My music combines folk, spoken word, pop, electronic and neoclassical.  Reflecting my background in classical and jazz piano and poetry, and inspired by Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver and Keith Jarrett, my music is often lyrical, emotive, and improvisational. Themes include the personal and philosophical, the spiritual and sensual - life through death, memory, healing, love, water and the mystery of consciousness .

Having trained with national Youth Theatre and The School for Wise Children, I wrote and performed his first performance, Dear Lady Death, about my experience of being diagnosed with terminal leukaemia, my spiritual experiences and recovery -comprising poetry and music written at the time. I am a published essayist and poet (The Friend Quarterly) and poet ( Another Way Home, Burnished Steel)I have performed at festivals including Camp Bestival, Valleyfest, Cheltenham Jazz Fetival and Lyra Fest, and venues including Manchester Bridgewater Hal and Exeter Cathedral. I host The Making Tracks Podcast a personal storytelling through song analysis interview podcast. I was one of Rife Magazine's South-West"Inspiring 30 under 30".
