Tom Auton ‘Stay’ (2018, Single)- Mini Review

Having recently sold out his first headline gig in his home town of Cardiff, Tom Auton is now gaining a reputation for being an act to look out for on the UK music scene and beyond.- Rob Saunders (Deuce Music)

With his honest persona and smooth lyrics, Auton (based in Cardiff, Wales) is a star in the making. With his latest single ‘Stay’ cementing his potential star power even more.

His energetic songwriting, infectious hooks and slick demeanour make ‘Stay’ a stand out track from his highly awaited EP titled ‘Big Little Glass Bowl’.

As he laments (on his latest single):

“If every downtrodden lover wore a crown…Then I’d be a King and not a clown.

If every funk soul-singer sung a cover…Then I’d be a friend and not your lover…”

It is here that we begin to see Auton command the microphone, as he weaves himself so effortlessly from line to line (amongst the gentle backing of a strumming guitar/drum set up).

Influenced by the likes of Royal Blood and John Mayer, Tom Auton first made his mark breaking into the top 8 in Fender’s Undiscovered Artist Of The Year Award where he showcased himself to an audience of over 5 million.  In addition to this, he also achieved first place at both Open Mic UK and Future Music Songwriting competition not to mention radio play on a number of popular stations.- Rob Saunders (Deuce Music)

Rating: ****

‘Stay’ is well composed and beautifully melancholy. With a distinctive rift and Auton’s unique vocal power, Stay will have you pining for more upon each listen. As Auton sets a spell on you with his mystifying presence as he laments over love, longing and his own confidence when it comes to love.

Tom Auton’s highly anticipated EP Big Little Glass Bowl is now available to purchase through all major download stores and you can find further information on this by visiting his website or you can  follow him on social media at and
