Tom Rodwell is a critically acclaimed guitarist and singer performing a hybrid of blues, calypso and spirituals, active as a songwriter, composer and session musician.

Described as “Sheffield’s answer to Lightnin’ Hopkins,” by the NME, the singer-guitarist has appeared widely in the UK, Switzerland, Holland, New Zealand and the US since 2003, both solo and with his ever-changing band Storehouse. He’s opened for artists including Trinity Roots, Leon Russell, John Butler Trio, Charles Bradley, Son of Dave, C.W. Stoneking, Otis Taylor and Derek Trucks - who remarked, “You don’t hear that anymore; beautiful tunes, beautiful groove!

His uniquely primitivist yet dance-orientated take on rhythm and blues music takes influences from calypso, slave-era spirituals and West African juju music - making his playing thoughtful, hard to categorise, yet instantly accessible, and bursting with salacious and surreal lyrics.

By turns wild, angry, hypnotic and sensual, it’s as uncompromising as it is funky and some of the best live music I’ve seen,” remarked Blues in London.

As a session player, Rodwell has worked with acts including legendary New Zealand songwriter Don McGlashan (appearing throughout his critically acclaimed new Lucky Stars album) as well as American folk-roots artist Madame Pamita, LA-born / London-based psychedelic soul legend Art Terry and Danish experimental folk artist Parkbench.
