Spotlight: Qoncept

Qoncept is a non-profit solo music project by 28 year old, vocalist, songwriter and producer, Tom Sharpe. Tom describes Qoncept as follows:

“I am not Qoncept – Qoncept is the music. Qoncept is self defined and free to explore the extreme reaches of music and art. Expressing myself, my thoughts, my feelings and my passions through music will always take priority over commercial or financial gain, because I believe that the spirit of true art is corrupted and de-valued by money and fame”.

Tom’s lyrics are mainly based on his personal views, experiences and values. They are honest, meaningful, passionate, and thought provoking. They are designed to cause you to get lost in the song and leave you feeling inspired.

Tom’s vocals are a mixture of melodic singing (to add warmth), powerful spoken words (to bring intent), and sincere screams (to show the passion behind the lyrics). By teaming up this diverse vocal style with his unique style of music, Tom is able to produce truly personal songs. From the start he has never sacrificed or altered his musical vision:

“I do not expect my music to appeal to the wider audience, but I am making it available in the hope that the true music lovers will appreciate what I stand for and respect me as an honest artist!”

He loves getting involved in crazy music projects and plays the bassoon, oboe, piano, recorder and guitar. He also makes lots of electronic music and loves collaborating. He sings too if you ask nicely and once shamefully sang as a backing singer for Will Young. When he’s not moaning about the state of the music industry or public transport in Manchester, he works with the Twine community and handles social media, the blog and partnerships with companies and institutions.
