A Charleston, South Carolina-based singer/songwriter whose honest and soulful mix of Americana, pop and rock creates a melodic, smooth sound that's effortlessly organic. Originally from the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Mackell honed his skills performing at bars and restaurants. He performed back and forth between Philadelphia and Charleston before moving to Nashville in 2015. Diving headfirst into music city, he landed a job at a talent agency while also writing and recording in his free time. He then went on to release five singles from 2016-2018 followed by a five-track EP in 2019 and his latest single “Strange Times” in 2020.
Currently, Tom has a catalog of new music on the horizon. His new single, “Maybe Tonight”, drops on March 5, 2021. Released alongside an official video, the song is a powerful blend of Americana, pop and rock. The song is thoughtful, introspective and hopeful in its lyrical content. Complemented by alluring electric guitars and a driving backbeat, Tom’s new single sets the tone for the rest of his year. “In releasing this new song I wanted to touch upon the fact that my influences range from soul and pop to folk and rock. Something I admire about artists today is that there is so much genre-defying music. I enjoy making art that has no guidelines and is just a pure human expression.”
