Sheku Kanneh-Mason is a British cellist and the winner of the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year award. Early in 2017 Sheku approached Tom to arrange Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah', which he was to perform in the same year during the televised BAFTA award ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall. Tom's arrangement was featured on Sheku's first, self-titled release on Decca Classics alongside pieces by Fauré and Bloch. An accompanying music video for 'Hallelujah' was filmed at the iconic Abbey Road Studios.

Further down the road, Sheku asked Tom to provide an arrangement of 'The Swan', the penultimate movement of The Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saëns. 'The Swan' was released as a single, accompanied by a video premiered by The Telegraph. It features on Sheku's debut album Inspiration, alongside Tom's arrangements of 'Hallelujah' and 'Evening Of Roses'. The latter was performed by Sheku with his family at the 2018 BAFTA award ceremony, making him the first artist ever to have been asked to perform at the ceremony twice. 

Inspiration is available to download and stream everywhere now.

Under the moniker Second Moon of Winter, Tom took up his clarinet and joined forces with opera singer Kim Sheehan and guitarist Ari Sheehan to create an intensely personal project from a series of interpretive and improvisational sessions. The result was a six track album entitled One For Sorrow, Two For Joy, recorded in a basement by the sea in County Cork in 2015. For the trio, the recording and live experience became interchangeable; there were no computers, no playback of samples, no overdubs, no further processing after the event. Each member's unique musical viewpoint, forged from years of individual experience, fuse to create a cohesive, contemplative whole.
