Tom West and Nancy Bates - Double Bill
AboutTwo of Adelaide's finest singer songwriters.

Currently dividing his time between Chicago and Adelaide, West is returning to Australia in October for a busy summer of tour dates. His 2020 album ‘Antarctica’ was written during a period after his father died from Motor Neurone Disease and released, with the generous support of his community of fans via Kickstarter, during Covid isolation after his album tour was cancelled. The album features a collection of songs that have proven to enthral audiences around the word with West’s forthcoming style and honestly behind his storytelling and music.
