The songs of MF Tomlinson are the down-but-not-out chronicles of ordinary life, widescreen portraits of his relationships and neighbourhood painted with a cast of talented collaborators. MF’s on a musical mission to turn up the transcendental in his everyday experiences.
May 22nd will be the launch show of his first offering ‘Nature Boy’, set for release on the 17th of April. Cinematic soul synths grounded by a thundering baseline, a sonic collision between Todd Rundgren and Dr Dre. In vocals that alternately shamble and soar, MF evokes eden ahbez’s Nature Boy in 2019: asking how to do good in our maybe-doomed world.
While this is the debut for MF Tomlinson, it follows a series of packed out shows under the alias Nature Boy at Paper Dress & The Sebright Arms. He'll be joined onstage by his collaborators Angus Rudd, Ed Grimshaw, Ami Koda, Connie Chatwin and Viljam Nybecka as well as some very special support acts.
