Tom Killner who straddles the line between genres with soulfully infused blues, southern rock, country, and americana is proud to release his new album ‘Borrowed Time’ on CD, vinyl available direct from Tom HERE and on all digital platforms. The excited 28 year old award winning singer/songwriter free spirited Tom states with an infectious smile, “It has been a long time coming but it will take you on a rollercoaster that is life with hooky riffs and heartfelt songs and I assure you it’ll all have been worth the wait!”

Accompanying the release is the uptempo feel good, sing-along video ‘Light It Up’, which with the changing season evokes images of warmer nights to come peppered with blistering guitar work and the bands engaging live show. “It’s one of the songs that’s been with us for a few years, it’s grown overtime and is super fun to play! The main theme is that it’s a good time song about being stuck in the 9-5 and you can’t wait for the weekend to down tools, kick off your boots, or put them on for a night out, and let your hair down!”

The 10 track collection bears an overarching story and is truly that of a modern day troubadour and to be aurally enveloped in a single sitting each listen, “I’ve always been around music from an early age and I really wanted to tell stories of characters you meet in life, relationships both good and bad, and of events and emotions that have moved or affected me in some way. For the first time in my life I experienced some mental health challenges in lockdown, like so many did, I partly used that as a catalyst to create and for those listening to relate to.” The Rotherham UK born award-winning powerhouse vocalist and guitarist goes on, “Some of the songs go back a way’, some were wrote in lockdown like ‘Cosmic Sounds’ which came to me in a moment of stillness and reflection with it swirling around my head and I just couldn’t let it go. ‘One Day At A Time’ is one where you may feel that you’ve lost it all but there’s something that spurs you along the road.”

From the opening first notes the listener is swept along on a sonic journey that encompasses a myriad of styles, instrumentation and songwriting from the honky-tonk good time ‘On The Other Side’ to the simultaneously heartbreaking and uplifting ‘No More’ through to the foot tapping and thoughtful title track ‘Borrowed Time’, “The band and I were jamming and it just flowed out. We’re only here once, and in this moment as the past doesn’t exist. We can’t waste time and life is long if you spend it right as it’s all just borrowed.” The album features the esteemed Sam Wood (Black Star Riders, Wayward Sons) on pedal steel and backing vocals are breathed throughout by the acclaimed musician Oli Brown and highly talented Kier with co-production/mixing and mastering handled by the much in-demand Wayne Proctor at his House of Tone Studios (King King, Aynsley Lister, Ben Poole, Nine Below Zero).

Winning over audiences across the UK and Europe with their highly dynamic show, Tom and the band features Wes Brook (keys, Hammond), Callum Houghton (bass) and Rich Hunter (drums) who throw down a memorable showcase of guitar slinging, emotional and foot-stomping hell-raising songs. Aligned with the new album release, it’s Tom’s busiest year to date having recently played the world famous 100 Club London for the first time to a rapturous reception. “We’re on tour during April supporting the new album and have a good number of festivals this year in Call of the Wild, Rockwich, SOS Festival, NWOCR Livefest and more to come. In May we hit the road in a double header with southern rockers American band Hush Money and then the legendary Preacher Stone from North Carolina in July. You’ll be seeing plenty of us that’s for sure as playing live is where it’s at for us with new songs, new venues, making new friends and having even more new experiences!”

Eager for all to hear what he passionately believes to be his best work to date, Tom states, “I’m very grateful to all those who backed the new album Kickstarter campaign so I have to be true to them and all. I’ve really stuck to my guns with this album and haven’t once thought I had to conform to a specific style or way of writing and I’ve grown a lot as a person as a result. It’s my most honest and revealing album and I hope the listener can take something away from it for themselves.” Saddle up and join Tom Killner for a tapestry of a trip through ‘Borrowed Time’.
