Beautiful and Deep

I love his voice. His iconically sad British tones. The holidays are a time to reflect and this music is great for the soundtrack of the reflective and introvert.



I’m blown away.
Lead singer of Keane.
Voice of an angel, this is the best album of 2017.
Can’t stop playing it.


Music To Score Your Life

I have scored some of life’s most beautiful moments with my wife and children, through our family pictures and videos, with this man’s amazing voice and moving melodies; from Keane to The Wave and now this wonderful album. Twelve Tales of Christmas is a delight. Thank you again, Tom.

About Tom Chaplin

Tom Chaplin rose to prominence on both sides of the Atlantic in the early 2000s as the frontman for British alt-rockers Keane. A native of Hastings in East Sussex, Chaplin began his musical career in 1995 when he was asked to join a local covers group called the Lotus Eaters. Rechristening themselves Keane, they eventually signed with Island in 2003 and quickly found success with their 2004 debut, Hopes and Fears. Keane's earnest, piano-driven style proved a winning formula and Hopes and Fears debuted at number one on the album charts, eventually ranking as the U.K.'s 11th best-selling album of the 2000s. Led by Chaplin's soaring vocals, Keane's mainstream success continued throughout the coming decade, first with 2006's massively popular Under the Iron Sea and later with Perfect Symmetry (2008) and Strangeland (2012). Following a 2013 "best-of" compilation, the band took a hiatus during which Chaplin embarked on a solo career. Still signed to Island as a solo artist, he released his debut, The Wave, in late 2016. Following a tour in support of the release in 2017, Chaplin started work on a Christmas album that took a different approach to the traditional holiday release. Recorded with David Kosten, Twelve Tales of Christmas saw Chaplin penning eight original tracks as well as reimagining four covers, including East 17's "Stay Another Day" and Joni Mitchell's "River." ~ Timothy Monger
