Thank you! :)

Tom Harris is a northern pianist, composer, theatre-maker, and educator. They try their best to make interesting work with kind people, and want to share it with as many folks as possible!


Since dropping out of formal music education in 2018, Tom has developed their practice through collaborative work with artists across a range of disciplines; dancers, poets, visual artists, puppeteers, videographers, and actors. During this time they have performed alongside great musicians such as Nishla Smith, Rachael Cohen, Jean Toussaint, Rosie Tee, and Marco Woolf.


Tom’s debut album - Buddleia - was released independently in November 2023. This collection of original songs explores mental health, nature, gender, vulnerability, growth, hope, acceptance, and joy - all filtered through the musical influence of Tom’s favourite artists (including Nina Simone, Snowpoet, and Cécile McLorin Salvant).


As an educator, Tom is passionate about spreading a love of both playing and listening to music. They believes that core musical skills can be taught through any style of music, and that the best results come from following students’ own tastes and preferences. They also encourage students to examine the role of art and music in society more broadly.


Tom is part of Jazz North’s Northern Line 2024-2025 roster, and working on new music with a range of collaborators. They are also running a private teaching studio, facilitating group composition workshops, and teaching musicianship and improvisation at Yorkshire Young Musicians.

They (*I) are (*am) quite bad at updating this site… the best place to get up to date news about upcoming performances/releases/etc. is by signing up to their (*my) mailing list, or following them (*me) on Instagram or Facebook.
