Thomas Heppell impressed us at The Retreat with an impromptu blues jam just a few months back. We’re pleased to announce that he and his band have said yes to performing a full set.
Thomas Heppell is a Berkshire based musician who performs Blues, Rock & Roll and Jazz covers, alongside his own compositions. In January 2023, he sold out his debut London band show at Sound Lounge Sutton and has been nominated for 3 UK Blues Awards – Young Blues Artist, Emerging Blues Artist and Acoustic Blues Artist 2023 (UK Blues Federation).
In 2022, Thomas supported Anton du Beke, Robin Bibi and Mike Mayfield, and performed at The Tuesday Night Club in London, Lincoln Jazz Cafe, Broadstairs Blues Bash, Swanage Blues festival and Weyfest.
His debut EP ‘Be My Home’ has recently been played on Jazz FM (Blues and Boogie – David Freeman) and Blues Radio UK (Richard Dunning – Chairman of Blues UK Federation). With several prominent blues festivals and big support slots coming up, the future is looking very bright for Thomas.
Thomas and his band put on an energetic and engaging live show that will get your foot tapping to some good old blues and rock & roll classics, with a few familiar favourites and some originals.
