My Two Toms & friends...

'My Two Toms' are Tom Cops and Tom Stubbs, who play instrumental songs inspired by traditional Appalachian folk music. Their 2010 American tour supporting Charlie Parr, was captured by Tom Cops' medium format camera, and produced our debut photobook 'Midwest'.

When not playing music, the other half of the eponymous duo, Tom Stubbs, is a partner in Somerset based Biggerhouse Films. On their first journey across the US in 2007, again supporting Charlie Parr, Stubbs took his video camera. The resulting film is a touching and humourous documentary of life on the road for touring musicians, surviving without the luxuries of hotels, private jets or a competent tour manager...

My Two Toms released an LP on Bristol's Stitch-Stitch records, with guests musicians including Matt and Kate from Movietone/Crescent, and François (laterly of François & The Atlas Mountains). The LP is adorned with beautiful sleeve art by Norweigan illustrator Bjørn Lie. We have commissioned Bjørn to produce a collection of Christmas cards and wrapping paper for us, which we'll be releasing very shortly.

Lastly, our thanks to all the journalists, bloggers and Pinterest users who have featured our products, as well as our followers on Twitter and Facebook.
