With 2008 single Better covered by Boyzone, Almost There recorded by Dame Shirley Bassey, Miracle“>Miracle rocketing to mainstream consciousness after being used in the BBC’s coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics and all of them being used as film soundtracks, Suffolk singer-songwriter Tom Baxter‘s songwriting talents have been well established since the release of debut album Feather and Stone in 2004.
Flaunting a remarkable talent for pulling at the heartstrings, his influences range from the folk scene he was born into to Spanish guitar, funk and lush orchestration, held together by a tender lyrical simplicity capable of melting even the coldest of hearts.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
