“It’s like the song is passing underneath and you stamp down and make an impression in the vinyl with it.” A few months ago I made my way over to the banks of the Thames to chat to Tom Hyatt. Tom’s a folk musician, which marks a first for the podcast. He talks about why he obsessively listens to Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, his songwriting process and collaborations with other musicians like Maya McCourt. He also chats about what gets lost in performing covers, and the emotion that runs through classical music. Finally, he performs a brand new song that he’s written for the podcast.
