Fast Five: Tom Clay



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I started playing when i was really young, my dad bought me a guitar one christmas and I thought myself to play by listening to the radio and trying to play along. i was in a band in school, we used to get together in breaks and after school. None of us were very good but it was great fun to just get together and make a racket! I tried acting for a bit but my heart’s always been in music.

How would you describe your music?

I tend to just write what i hear in my head. It’s hard to describe your own music,, much like most creative pursuits, it evolves over time.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

I’ve just started gigging again, which I love, so I’m doing that as much as possible and I’m releasing a single “Sanctuary” in January.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

I’d love to play with Ryan Adams, he’s so prolific in the way he writes.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

Probably Joshua Tree by U2, it was the sound track to my childhood.
