As the great-grandson of a famous TV personality, you could say the term heritage lies heavy on the shoulders of Tommi Waring.
If so, he’s far from showing it so far. Born in Florida, later relocating to Miami and eventually London. Tommi began refining his skills at Berklee’s college of music in Boston, it was here that he became obsessed with creating a retro-influenced, contemporary pop sound. Since then, his move to London has inspired plenty of creative collaboration and a plateau of releases. He took the decision to work with a number of musical creatives, before developing an effective working relationship with mix engineer Julian Blanco of The Sonic Crew (The studio have previously worked with the likes of Idris Elba, Diplo & Lethal bizzle).

His new single, sees Tommi walk the path of the soulful artist. Laced with an infectious groove and undeniable production quality, “Forever” is his strongest work to date.
