The singer/songwriter has more than 160m streams across all DSPs

Liverpool, 17th March 2021 Sentric Music Group has signed London-based singer/songwriter Tom Speight to an exclusive songwriting agreement.

Signed to Nettwerk Music Group for records, Speight has amassed more than 160 million streams across all DSPs, with more than a million monthly listeners on Spotify alone.

Since 2014, Speight has gained international recognition from the UK, to Germany to Brazil, headlining shows and supporting some big-name acts, including Ed Sheeran, Snow Patrol, Ben Howard and Travis.

He has had strong radio support from BBC Radio 2, with seven playlisted records in a row, including his latest radio single Everything’s Waiting For You, which was added to the B list as well as regional radio.

Speight has had significant sync placements on Netflix’s teen rom com To All The Boys: Always And Forever, and romantic drama series Virgin River. He’s also made TV appearances on ITV News, Channel 5 News, BBC Breakfast, BBC News, Sky News and The Sara Cox TV Show.

Speight’s second album, Everything’s Waiting For You, will land in 2021, with new headline shows set to be announced for 2022 including at London’s 700 capacity Lafayette.

Sentric’s Global Director of Music Services, Simon Pursehouse, said: “I’ve known Tom ever since attending university with him and it’s been a delight to watch him blossom into the unarguably gifted songwriter that he is today. I’m chuffed we’re working together and can’t wait to help him develop his songwriting clout even further. Despite already clocking up a noteworthy amount of streams and garnering some revered radio support, I honestly believe the best is yet to come from Tom.”

Tom Speight said: “Simon has always been very passionate about my music, he’s someone I’ve always trusted and I know he’ll look after my songs. I’m so excited to work with Simon and the Sentric team for the next album and the future. I know I’m in safe hands with them and believe we’re going to do something very special together.’’
