Tom Bell is one of the UK’s most exciting young talents. Although only in his twenties, he has already established a reputation as an outstanding pianist and is often described as “a young Jools Holland”. His music reflects influences of Daniel Barenboim, Vladimir Horowitz and Keith Emerson, through to more modern artists such Jools Holland and Axel Zwingenberger.
Tom combines dazzling, virtuoso classical with thundering, foot stomping boogie woogie. Formidable technically, his intense and creative approach to music is demonstrated in his ability to produce inspired works across the whole of the Blues/Classical spectrum. Whether performing a Chopin Ballade or some of his excellent original material, his command over both genres demonstrates a unique spin on the traditional concert experience, setting him apart as an exceptional performer and boogie pianist without parallel.

Des Coleman, TV Presenter, Actor and Singer: ITV News/ Eastenders
"the frivolity is infectious, the atmosphere closer to a live performance than the studio; but underlying all of this is Bell's rock solid sense of rhythm"
International Piano Magazine
"balm to the soul… delivered by a young man of much talent... beautifully nuanced, incredibly tender at heart; yet he has all the technical arsenal at his command"
