Everything’s Waiting For You is a positive, vibrant release from Tom Speight, a record we never knew we needed to hear, particularly in light of this last 18 months or so.

It’s a reminder to live each day as it comes and make the most of every second. Sonically, the album reminds me of Coldplay or a band of that elk, it wouldn’t be out of place sitting on the mainstream charts here in the UK that’s for sure. A couple of highlights for me, are the title track and Hymn For Her. The former, which was released as a single, has a big, catchy chorus. The female backing vocalist, providing support to Speight’s toppling is subtle yet really effective. Meanwhile, Hymn For Her begins acapella and highlights Speights vocal style and range – the conclusion being he has a lovely, controlled falsetto. The production is stripped back throughout before opening up towards the end with epic drum hits and cymbal crashes along with a distorted electric guitar.

As a country music fan I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this album so much but I think Speight has an awful lot of talent and this record could do really well in a mainstream setting.
