Born in 1950, Tom first became known in the late 1970s as a musician and LGBT activist with the Tom Robinson Band. TRB’s best known hits were 2-4-6-8 Motorway, Don’t Take No For An Answer, Glad To Be Gay and Up Against The Wall. The band were also early supporters of Rock Against Racism and Amnesty International, and their debut album Power In The Darkness went gold in the UK and Japan.

Between 1975 and 2001 Tom has released 19 albums with various bands, and co-written songs with Elton John, Dan Hartman and Manu Katché among others. As a solo artist he had further solo UK hits in 1983 with War Baby and Atmospherics.
 
A champion of new and emerging artists via BBC Introducing Tom is also one of the founding team behind BBC Radio 6 where he hosts three shows a week.
