The Tom Killner Band is a raw power country, blues, southern rock and Americana delivered by four highly experienced and dedicated musicians.
A decade of touring the UK and the EU, to celebrate the band’s 10th year, they are looking to tour new and old venues nationwide. Since a young age, in his native South Yorkshire, Tom has been hailed a guitar prodigy. With high profile support slots including Dr. Feelgood, Danny Bryant, Lawrence Jones, as well his own headline shows and major rock, blues and country festivals across the UK and EU.
Described as an all round performer, whose skills are beyond his years, with nods to rock, blues, country and Americana, with southern soul infused in its core. The live
performances are delivered with passion, heartfelt soul drenched musicianship and
explosive drive, with guitar firepower.
“If you see Killner listed as playing in your town or city anytime soon, go and see him – I know I will”
Since forming the band, Tom has recorded three albums, two studio albums, a live album and an EP. This on top of appearing on recordings with Dr. John, Iggy Pop, Jeff Beck, Gary Moore.
The 2018 album Get Back Up was described as the album that bigger names spend most of their career working towards, fresh, vital, intense, soulful and rock hard. Hard Road, released in 2015, described as a retro sounding blues rock album with southern influence, interspersed with passionate playing from Tom and the band.
Giants of Rock reviewer, festivals for all, said he had witnessed one of the best sets he could remember for a long time. Tom’s throaty vocals were not only tremendous but incredible, with exceptional guitar playing. Slide guitar, and “honky tonk” returns from the keys player Wes, was a thing of beauty. In such hallowed company, to be picked as one of the FFA sets of the festival is simply an indication of the quality of the talented musicianship.
