Tom Bromley Need You, So Bad [single]
Tom Bromley: Need You, So Bad “The strong-voiced Tom
  Bromley is about to
  release his new AA side
  single, Need You, So Bad
  and Nothing To Do Or Say
— his first release from
  his as-yet-unfinished
  second album In It For The
, which will be
  released early in 2008...”

THE OPENING CHORDS OF Need You So Bad stir the soul and Tom's husky tones trip into the melody with ease. He tempers
his voice to match the chords and you can almost feel the suppressed energy that he reserves for Nothing To Do Or Say. Produced by Rob Quickenden, the tracks display Tom
's distinctive and natural sound. Two excellent tracks.

This talented singer, songwriter and musician pours his heart into his singing. The publicity machine says: "…Tom hits the ground running with this impressive CD, confirming the 25-year-old artiste's abilities…" and "Displaying a growth, maturity and development since his stunning and critically-acclaimed debut album Two Nine Five, Need You, So Bad displays what producer Rob Quickenden has brought out of Tom this time around, both as a performer and musician.

"The quality of the vocal performance is in addition to Tom also playing the keys and drums elsewhere on the album. With Quickenden also contributing brass on the album, one can't help but recall Springsteen and The E Street band at their best."

This CD is a glimpse of great things to come from the young, exciting and talented Tom Bromley from Kent. Keep him in your sights.

Tom Bromley's AA side single Need You, So Bad/Nothing To Do Or Say is to be released on 26 November (2007) on 4Real Records.
