Tom Kirkham

Tom is a 30-something music obsessive and part-time explorer who hails from the North West of England. In the real world, Tom is a self-employed marketing and communications consultant, but is happiest watching bands perform, following Liverpool FC and thinking about his hair.

A multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Tom has released two albums with his band Silent Alliance, who are passably big in Japan. Tom lives in North London with his feline companion of 12 years, Mr Kitten. Pop Life is his first book.
