BRIEFS: Thomas J. Speight

London-based singer/songwriter Thomas J. Speight plays the kind of breezy, introspective folk/rock that's secured him opening slots for the likes of Mumford and Sons, Ed Sheeran and Jake Bugg. Self-titled debut solo album, due later this year, was produced by Richard Turvey (The Wild Swans) and features the über-catchy "Just Where I Want To Be" as lead single (out February 17 in the U.K.). We're also taken with Speight's blissful duet with Philly-based songwriter Allie Moss on the piano ballad "The River" -- click through below to stream.
