Y el día de hoy me he decantado por Tom Vek entre otros músicos, amo su incandescencia melódica y sobre todo el empleo del eclecticismo musical.
Thomas Timothy Vernon-Kell (born 10 May 1981, London) is a self-taught multi-instrumentalistmusician who works under the name Tom Vek. Born in America, he signed to the small label Tummy Touch Records in 2001, having spent the previous eight years writing and recording in his parents’ garage.
Vek’s debut album We Have Sound was recorded whilst he completed a graphic design degree.
