Medium Eyes Blue Build

Medium Eyes Blue Build

"As a broadcaster I am always looking out for artists who push at the boundaries of music. With Tom Adamson's new album Medium Eyes Blue Build, as indicated by the title, nothing is exactly as you would expect. This is an album which holds your attention with elements of Prog, Rock, Jazz, Celtic and Folk influences throughout. I like that you are never sure what surprises and delights will be coming up on the next track. A fine album indeed."

- Graeme Scott K107FM & Blues Matters! magazine.

"...Tom writes superb, addictive, contemporary, jazz inflected prog-folk-rock. He's a Joy to work with, and an extraordinary musician."

- Stephen Duffy, presenter of the Jazz House, BBC Radio Scotland's Sony Nominated jazz program.
