Tom Richardson

Tom Richardson
Tom Richardson is a guitarist from Lancashire, England. He begun playing the guitar at the age of 9 after being inspired by his Dad’s record collection featuring the likes of Van Halen, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin and hearing so many great guitar players motivated him to keep practicing and develop his technique.

During high school, he took up lessons with a local Jazz/Blues guitar tutor in order to further develop his technique and theory and gained Grade 8 Distinciton in Guitar Performance. It was also around this time, at the age of 14, a video of an unaccompanied solo he performed at his school was featured in the “Best of YouTube” section in Total Guitar Magazine praising his playing.

After having played in several rock and metal bands, he found himself more and more inspired by players such as Guthrie Govan, Alex Hutchings and Tom Quayle and from then on he decided he would focus his time on learning more about Jazz and fusion as the styles intrigued him greatly and this is still the main focus of his playing today.

Tom has started working on several instrumental tracks, some of which can be found on his YouTube channel. Currently he is studying music at College while also giving guitar tuition. Upon leaving college this year, he plans to continue his studies in Guildford, Surrey at the Academy of Contemporary Music.
