An entirely organic success story, Tom Speight has returned from the brink to find success in the only way he knows how – great songwriting, delivered at each and every gig. “Fans call me ‘friend’ he exclaims. “I write messages for them when they buy the deluxe CD. You feel like you get to know people. I know what some of them do for jobs or how their wife is or something like that. It’s that nice feeling of having personal interactions with the fans. It’s important.”
