Tom Mackell is an American singer-songwriter originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, currently based in Charleston, South Carolina. Tom’s songs are built around spontaneous ideas that he stumbles across in day-to-day life. His lyrics and rhythms are born from his keen awareness of the world around him. “I enjoy writing songs and watching them come to life in the studio or on the stage. I love sharing my music. Songwriting is my escape, my passion, my craft and my inspiration to keep doing more. ” He launched his career in the summer of 2009 after graduating high school and releasing a self-produced 5-track solo-acoustic EP titled, “One Man Army”. Tom spent his freshman year of college in Washington, DC where he began playing open mic nights around the city. The following year, Tom moved to Charleston, South Carolina to attend the College of Charleston and lay the foundation for his music career.

In June 2011, Tom entered the studio to record his sophomore EP titled “Carolina Sweet” with Grammy Award-winning Producer/Engineer, Glenn Barratt. The EP was recorded at MorningStar Studios near Philadelphia. Tom spent the next few years gigging relentlessly. After graduating from the College of Charleston in May of 2013, Tom continued to perform at bars and clubs around Charleston in addition to touring along the east coast. In the fall of 2014, Tom began recording his third EP titled “Here Come The Days” with Producer Jeff Leonard Jr. at Ocean Industries Studios in Charleston. The EP was released on January 27, 2015 on iTunes and all other current digital retailers. You can hear Tom’s music on Spotify and Pandora as well as Charleston’s 105.5 The Bridge. Stay tuned for tour dates and updates on new material.
