Tommy Fleming has many times been described as the “Voice of Ireland” and is one of Ireland’s top entertainers with over 5 million Youtube hits and over 3 million album sales worldwide.
Tommy was born in Aclare Co. Sligo, Ireland in 1971 and was the youngest of six children. He started singing while still at school while fronting his own local band and a chance encounter with Phil Coulter at a charity function near his home, led to a big break onto the world stage where Tommy appeared as a guest singer on Phil’s USA tour. This then lead to Tommyentering into the music business as a solo artist.
Shortly after securing a record deal everything looked set to flourish, when a tragic car accident left the singer with a broken neck leaving his music career on-hold indefinitely. After many months of convalescentsTommy returned to the stage having to start over and is now regarded as one of the finest singers worldwide and is currently enjoying a hugely successful career spanning almost 30 years.
On 30th March 2012, Tommy lost both of his parents and chose not to perform for several months. The encouragement and influence his parents had on his career inspired Tommy to write his autobiography and record the album “Begin” - a collection of songs chosen as a personal tribute to his beloved Mother and Father. This is just one album of fifteen that providesstrength and comfort to countless others with heavy hearts, as they journey through difficult times.
Tommy turns each song into his own with his own unique and powerful style touching emotions in you that only music can reach. Tommy is famous for his own arrangement of “Danny Boy”, “Isle of Inisfree” and “Hard Times” all songs that you know and love but you have never heard them until you hear Tommy Fleming’s versions. He also covers songs from “You Raise Me Up” to “Bridge over Troubled Waters”, “From a Distance” and “Something Inside So Strong” along with many more contemporary numbers.
While Tommy’s music may be difficult to classify, fans use such words as “deeply emotional, romantic and sincere” to describe the feelings it evokes. One reviewer described his music as falling into a genre of Symphonic Pop that still awaits a name.
Tommy’s unique talent has brought him worldwide recognition with several sell-out tours in Ireland, the UK, the US, Australia and Japan and he is now critically acclaimed to be one of the worlds’ finest singers of his generation.
A Tommy Fleming concert is a musical experience not to be missed with one song more haunting than the other. He has a universal appeal to all ages and backgrounds with a fan base that is growing stronger worldwide year by year.
