One of the most distinguished song craftsmen of the 21st century makes his long-awaited return with ‘The other side of blue’, his first official release in a decade.It was in 2008 that Tom brought out the self-funded ‘Skybound,’ the follow-up to the 2004 debut ‘Feather & Stone,’ which first alerted the wider world to his singular talent for believable, emotionally immersive composition. since then, he’s released one fan-only album, traveled the world, been through plenty of soul-searching and emerged at the other end with what may well be his best-ever work.Baxter made his name with such heart-stopping originals as ‘Better,’ ‘Almost there’ and ‘Day in Verona,’ and his songs have been covered by much-loved entertainers from Dame Shirley Bassey to Boyzone. he’s admired by the likes of Tom Waits, Rufus Wainwright, Gary Barlow and actor David Schwimmer, and by a steadfast set of fans who’ve been waiting for word of his next adventure.‘The other side of blue’ is Baxter’s most searingly personal work to date, performed entirely solo and with gorgeous illustration on guitar and piano. it’s a beautiful and elegant return to his very core as a songwriter and a human being.
