Tommy Sparks – Artist Information | The Camden Crawl 2012

With rave in his heart, a guitar in his hand and a mission on his mind, Tommy Sparks is creating blasts of life-affirming melody and empowering elegies. The Gothenburg-born, Stockholm-raised tear-away attributes his pre-teens to the discovery of hip hop after his sister lent him a mixtape of Kool Moe Dee and Jungle Brothers. His teens were then indebted to grunge where he discovered the likes of The Pixies and Sonic Youth aged 13. Having toured with The Prodigy and supported Bloc Party since then, Sparks will be bringing to the Camden Crawl ’09 music that ‘achieves total danceability whilst posing moving questions’.
