Born in Essex, UK, Thomas Harkins-Bettis is a 19 year old self taught pianist and composer that first started to play the piano at the age of 15. Since then, he now creates his own music to attempt to escape reality for just a few minutes and to share his creativity with the world. Not only is Tom an independent musician, he has also worked with Blue Spiral Records to release Within the Mist (2019) and collaborated with over 15 composers on a charity fundraiser album "Here and Now" (2020). His newest release, lumière is now available to stream! With each release, Tom wants to share a new journey that he either has or will encounter throughout his life - both happy and sad.
