‘Lightning Strike of ‘22’ is a sweet record about the love shared between two brothers. Reflecting on what has been and what is yet to come, Tom sings this heart-warming number over the bright strums of his jangling guitar, presenting a vintage flair that touches on a now-classic sound, which was first popularised by The Beatles.

Tom tells us the record’s backstory, saying, “Lightning Strike Of ’22 narrates my brother and I coming home from the pub one evening when a heavy thunderstorm started. As the rain got heavier, we got into deeper and more philosophical conversations about life itself and appreciating what we have and what’s to come.  Who knows if this night created a tighter bond between us, a closer connection with mother nature itself… or maybe I just thought that’s a good idea for a song!”
