" **** With his unique voice, storytelling and folk sensibility he could pass for a modern-day Neil Young. " - John O'Brien, The Australian.
"One of the best albums of 2020" - Scenster
Originally from Adelaide, until March West had spent the majority of the past 3 years pounding the pavement in the United States: touring, couch surfing, overnight busses to and from shows, sleeping in stations, and performing as much as possible, good, bad and ugly shows and everything in between!
Things took a turn in March when he ended up going to hospital in Milwaukee after getting attacked by a husky before a gig, shows began to cancel, then, days later, had to suddenly leave New York as the pandemic was breaking. 
Antarctica was written during a period after his father died from motor neurone disease. Produced by Allen Tate (San Fermin) in studios around Brooklyn, NY and was mixed & mastered by Grammy nominated Tyler McDiarmid. It features a collection of songs that have proven to enthral audiences around the world with West's forthcoming style and the honesty behind his storytelling and music. He shares perspectives on love, loss and observations of the world around us from silent wilderness to churning big cities. His experiences and writings are underpinned by a humble upbringing among the rolling hIlls and surf worn coasts of SA spent listening to and learning from the timeless music of the likes of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell & Jeff Lang. 
The Australian awarded the album 4/5 stars. Scenstr says 'Tom West has delivered one of the best albums of 2020.' Of lead single, "A Folk Singer from Outer Space," American Songwriter describes 'Melancholic and comical, ”A Folk Singer From Outer Space” somehow offers some soothing solace for the current, permeating state of loss and isolation.'
Limited tables available for dinner in the venue prior to the show.
