REVIEWS:

"This is an absolutely stellar, beautiful first release, which could be likened to, and on a par with, acts such as Jacks Mannequin, City And Colour and even some Third Eye Blind. With his début EP “Human Minds” in the works, it wont be long before he is hitting the airwaves across the country." - GotGrog.com

"From Brighton, UK, Wayne Tomsett is one of the few artists who completely embodies every reason why unsigned music is just as worth listening to as signed or mainstream artists. His debut release, “Deceiver”, a folky, acoustic track, is beautiful in every area- the arrangement, composition, and performance is as flawless as it gets." - RedFluxRadio.com

"Tomsett surprises with his acoustic folk/pop offering, and even more so with his vocals. Broken and quite brittle, his singing voice carries emotion in every note. Wayne has a natural ability to keep his music exciting. Beautiful, uplifting and kind – this is definitely one to remember." - SQ Magazine

"Wayne has a nice clear sound and lyrics that have meaning to him and others. Adding this to his intrinsic understanding of song structure, melody, harmony and rhythm makes for a remarkable listening. So take a listen to him" - Trashcan Radio

"The single’s subtle opening of acoustic guitar and strings laid gently under vocal harmonies instantly grabs your attention. The phrasing of the song is great; each section building into the other and creating more emotion as the story unfolds. Wayne has clearly demonstrated his love and understanding of a good melody here as well as songwriting as a whole" - AltSounds.com

"Next up we have one of my favourite tracks on this particular podcast. When I was told about it I really didn't know what to expect. It's by a guy called Wayne Tomsett. Wayne is a metal vocalist, and most of the stuff I've heard from him has been particularly savage. But when I heard this, I was really, really blown away. I expected shouting, I expected it to be really heavy. I didn't in a million years expect anything like this" - Sound & Motion Podcast

"Wayne Tomsett sings like the imaginary lovechild of Brian Molko and Tracy Chapman" - Quiet Rebel

Track Name: Deceiver
Well I guess you're a deceiver
You never loved him any way

He always said he'd never leave her
I guess she didn't want to stay so...

Shut up, shut up, shut up,
You've had your time to talk, and I'm talking now
And I hope you're proud of what you've become
You just cause pain

He wants you to know
That he hasn't let go
And he doesn't love anyone else

So never look back and don't you, dare take that call
She's a heart bleeder – I hope you never see her no
So shield your heart from the sun, and keep your hands off the gun
You're just another prize, is she worth the fight,
you're on the borderline, you nearly lost your mind
Because the truth hurts, don't you know?

I never liked you when I met you
Thought you were trouble from the start

He's always blind to your distractions
You nearly tore him apart so...

Get out, get out, get out
You've done enough for now, can't you see he's down
And I hope you're proud of what you've become,
You've just caused pain

He wants you to know
That he hasn't let go
And he doesn't love anyone else

So never look back and don't you, dare take that call
She's a heart bleeder – I hope you never see her no
So shield your heart from the sun, and keep your hands off the gun
You're just another prize, is she worth the fight,
you're on the borderline, you nearly lost your mind
Because the truth hurts, don't you know?
Track Name: I Just Do
We try to learn but we never grow
I know it hurts but it never shows
So I'm a little anxious about today

I promised you that I'd never leave
A silver ring and my honesty
I hope these are the answers to your questioning

So here's a letter that I wrote to you:

I know your eyes will stop me heading for a fall
It hurts to go to sleep alone without the warmth of your:
Starlight please hold tight to me I'm fading out tonight
I wear my heart upon my sleeve for everyone to see
But I don't need a reason
I'll never ask for a reason

There'll come a time, there'll come a day
Our patience thin and our tempers frayed
And the last thing that you'll need is to hear my voice

So promise me when the futures here
Forget my sins, dry my tears
And be all of the answers to my prayers

I truly hope my letter finds you well:

I know your eyes will stop me heading for a fall
It hurts to go to sleep alone without the warmth of your:
Starlight please hold tight to me I'm fading out tonight
I wear my heart upon my sleeve for everyone to see
But I don't need a reason
I'll never ask for a reason

I need you to notice
I need you care
I want you to want me
To hold my hands
Track Name: Maybe Chance Will Be A Fine Thing
You know it hurts me when you claim
that I act a little strange
When you gaze upon my face
do you feel I feel the pain

But is it any wonder that I'm confused at all

And I just want you to know that I need you here back home
And I've taken steps out on my own
But it’s drier than a desert and you burn when you’re alone
So come on dear…. Maybe I’ll see you soon

I took the train back home today
maybe the rails will keep me sane
my destinations the same
maybe I'm the one who’s changed

But is it any wonder that I'm confused at all

And I just want you to know that I need you here back home
And I've taken steps out on my own
But it’s colder than December and you freeze when you’re alone
So come on dear…. Maybe I’ll see you soon

So here’s the final curtain honey, the blood left on my sleeve,
I’ve been dancing round forever so cue the final killer scene
I’ve believed for years in nothing, you've believed far less in me
maybe chance will be a fine thing you’ll cut my shackles free
so taste the sugar coating doesn't sweetness feel so grand
does my song meet your approval?l does my heart meet your demands?
I’ll leave my keys upon the table, my glass against the door,
and the contents of my mirror across my bedroom floor

And I just want you to know that I need you here back home
And I've taken steps out on my own
But it’s deeper than an ocean and I drown when I'm alone
So come on dear…. Maybe I’ll see you soon
Track Name: My Apology
I’m sorry for the times I caused the anguish in your eyes
And I regret the pain I caused with my capacity to lie
But I need you, to say you’ll forgive me, and love me

I’m sorry to my family who needed more from me
Every second I ignored you is a dose of misery
But I’ve promise, that I'll keep my promises, I'm learning

I’d love to answer, all of your questions
With my deepest sincerity
I hope you listen, with compassion
And sympathy

I’ll cry and I’ll bleed if I want to
But fold it all inside, somewhere you’ll never find
So all you’ll see is grey behind my eyes
The circles I walk are so lonely
So come and hold me, try to unfold me
And colour in these heart shaped pencil lines

I think about life, and wish I could take it from the start
And my heart races so fast I fear my chest will break apart
Because I remember
The decisions that broke me, and changed me

I wish I could reflect back on my childhood with joy
Or look at sepia toned photographs with love at life gone by
But it hurts, there’s nothing back there but sadness

I’d love to be the man I could have
And not this tower of broken skin
Not this drawer of broken things
Nor this peasant posed as king
