Tom Jones has a fundamental interest in a wide range of music and although he is well known for hits, he is first and foremost an artist with a true Rhythm and Blues soul. He has remained a vital recording artist, with his 1999 album  Reload
 the biggest selling (five million) of his then 35-year career.


Jones was a key player in Martin Scorsese’s Red White & Blues series directed by Alex Gibney, and over the last three albums - all produced by Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, Laura Marling, Paolo Nutini) - he has explored the vast ranges of the blues and soul repertoire to stunning effect. Applying his powerful vocal instrument and interpretative powers to the songs of Blind Willie Johnson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Odetta, Hank Williams, Jessie Fuller, Lonnie Johnson, Bob Dylan and many more, Jones has garnered stellar reviews in press worldwide.

Jones was knighted in 2006, an honour he was able to celebrate once again in 2012 when he performed at the Queens Diamond Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace. Other highlights of his long career include receiving a BRIT Awards for Best Male and Outstanding Contribution to Music, a Silver Clef Award and a Silver Clef Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Hitmaker Award from the [US] Songwriters Hall of Fame, GQ Man Of The Year and the prestigious [UK] Music Industry Trust Award.

Last month he released his [Sunday Times, UK] best-selling autobiography,  
Over The Top And Back,alongside the book’s companion soundtrack entitled
 
Long Lost Suitcase. He was also engaged in a major fund-raising effort for the BBC’s charity
 
Children In Need, headlining a special two-hour television event with his friends in both music and comedy.


Sir Tom is indeed a living legend, one of the few musical artists whose profession began at the dawn of modern popular music who continues to have a vital recording and performing career to this day. His irresistible show traverses musical eras and genres, cuts across class divides and appeals to young and old, male and female, mainstream and cutting edge. Sir Tom has always been about the power of the song, the power of the voice.
