Thom Morecroft

Joining the crop of Liverpool's finest young musicians is Thom Morecroft - a reputable songwriter originally from Shropshire (now based in Liverpool). Often backed by the Full Moon Band, Morecroft has performed in impressive venues such as the Zanzibar and has had tracks played on BBC Radio Merseyside and BBC6. With his distinctive, velvety vocal range and authentic tunes - Thom Morecroft is bound to catch attention in all the right places.
Listening to his track Daisy reveals a mellow and doughy side to the twenty two year old musician. An appetising blend of catchy lyrics, punchy hooks and sleek, sophisticated riffs mould the song together, formulating a tender track that is earth-shatteringly awesome. It is definitely one of those songs you will have on repeat.
As well as original recordings, Morecroft has a wide selection of inventive covers, that demonstrate his ability to take on a challenge and craft a piece as his own with a particularly unique and sensual approach. Take his latest cover of Fleetwood Mac's Big Love, for example. The acoustic approach works well and adds emphasis to his plush vocal delivery; it's a credit to Morecroft how polished his music always sounds.
Moon Moon Shake It, the title track from his latest album is an absolute delight to listen to. In the same vein as Ben Howard, the tune is propelled by folksy riffs and spine tingling moments. The self-confessed 'scruffy' songwriter delivers with candy sweet vocals and chilled beats that contain a circling chorus and tranquilising after taste. 
Hailed by Paul Du Noyer (former editor of NME, Q, MOJO and Word magazines) as "Very powerful", Thom Morecroft is looking to conquer and he couldn't have chosen a better time. Morecroft provides that much needed dose of folksy rock that will ensure his success.
