Bad Elephant Music is proud to announce that Demon, the sixth solo album from respected singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tom Slatter, will be released in July 2019.
Following on from his highly acclaimed Happy People album, and the Murder and Parliamentinstrumental project, Tom returns with his most personal album yet, heavily influenced by indie rockalbums of the mid 90’s. There are contributions from ‘Storm’ Gareth Cole, drummer Michael Cairns,Tom’s sister Rebecca Haynes on bassoon and The Barley Singers.
In Tom’s own words: “Demon developed from an idea I had into a record about my life, without having any personal lyrics. It’s more a collection of songs rather than having a concept like Happy People”.
“I suppose it had to happen sooner or later”, says long-suffering BEM label manager David Elliott.“Eventually I got fed up with Tom’s wheedling and whining and agreed to release Demon.Fortunately, it’s excellent”.

Tom’s most recent album, Happy People, received significant critical acclaim: “there’s a strength and depth to the musical arrangements throughout the whole album – everything has a purpose to it”(David Rickinson, Progradar); “Tom is a master of harmony and possesses a distinctive voice” (The Progressive Aspect), “…there’s enjoyment to be had in his steampunk prog vision” (Prog Magazine).
“The worlds gone horrible at the moment, so I thought it time for another album”, says Tom ofDemon, his sixth full-length album, and fourth release for Bad Elephant Music.
