HAVING released one of 2004’s most accomplished debut albums, Feather And Stone, singer/songwriter Tom Baxter returns this autumn to play two low-key charity shows at London’s Amadeus Theatre – at 8pm on September 26 and September 27, 2006.

Both shows will be recorded live and then mixed over the following weekend, with Baxter then releasing an exclusive EP, Live From The Amadeus (featuring four live tracks), that will be available to download from the following Monday morning.

Specially-designed artwork for the digital EP will also be handed out at the venue. However, for those unable to attend, it will also be available to download from Tom Baxter’s Amadeus microsite.

The shows will help raise money to repair the organ at the Amadeus Theatre. Suggested donation – £12.

Before being spotted by Sony in 2003, Baxter learnt his trade the hard way, working as a handyman by day and playing covers in local pubs and town halls by night. Later, he began gigging around the country and once, supported David Gray.

A haunting performer who has garnered critical praise since he first emerged onto the British circuit, Baxter has already drawn comparisons to some of the great songwriters of our time – from Jeff Buckley to Nick Drake.

Feather & Stone featured the singles My Declaration and This Boy.
