Coming fresh off the back of a show supporting Welsh legends Feeder at their hometown show in Newport, Tom Auton is back in style with a new-fangled single. In his latest song ‘Devil On My Shoulder’, the talented musician once again demonstrates his ability to create invigorating, up-tempo rock music that’s packed with commercial punch.
With a flurry of national radio and Spotify official playlist support already to his name, Tom is set to head off on his own UK headline tour to promote his single later this month, hopefully capping off a year that promises even more magic in 2022.
For Tom and his musical journey, they blossomed under unique circumstances. His addiction to his music started in 2016 when he received a ‘dreadful’ mix of his new single. The control freak within him spiralled out of control and turned Tom’s creative cogs into something bigger than he could have ever expected.
Splashing big money on microphones and other musical equipment quickly became the norm. Fast forward five years to the present day and Tom is now living the true rock and roll dream, producing his own rock and blues records at the age of 22 from his own studio ‘The Syncopation Station’ - which is better named as his parent’s living room in Cardiff.

Blending rip-roaring riffs, punching drums and deep bass under his pinpoint vocal delivery, the solo artist shows off his spellbinding music creating monster in this latest release. Tom creates an intense, adrenalin-fuelled soundscape packed with earworm vocal hooks and huge guitar licks.
Upon the release of ‘Devil On My Shoulder’, which can be compared to the likes of Queens Of The Stone Age and Nothing But Thieves, it’s easy to see why Tom has been having so much success with his music to date.
