https://www.1403music.com/ London based singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer 1403 (fourteen-o-three) has been something of an enigma over the past few years. A classical trained pianist from a young age, Tom Cameron (1403) soon moved onto a variety of other instruments whilst being exposed to Motown, 50-60’s R&B, Classical and Jazz greats by his mother (a skilled Pianist and Cellist in her own right). An early introduction at age 5 to Sgt Pepper, Tom sights as the moment ‘my world changed forever’. During his early teens he immersed himself into the Underground Rave and Electronic music scene that emerged in the UK before self-learning guitar and forming his first band at aged 16. Since then he has popped up in various guises including UK Rock Trio ‘Crystal Head’ writing and collaborating with artists such as House Music legend Sasha, Disturbing London's G-FrSH and Cypress Hill to name a few and he has also contributed to various film scores and advertising campaigns across a wide range of genres and styles. During this time, he was introduced to Grammy Award Winning Philadelphia based producer Joe ‘The Butcher’ Nicolo (Fugees, Billy Joel, Lauryn Hill). The pair quickly formed a unique bond which has seen 1403 travel to the US on several occasions over the past couple of years to transform his solo demos into studio recordings. The result was debut album ‘Tethered’. Since it’s release in Feb 2017, 1403 has released an electronic record ‘ILLUME’, 50’s inspired ‘Billet-Doux’, a collaborative outing 'Full Circle' with Phliadelphia based producer OddKidOut (this lead to a performance at FireFly festival in Dover) and most recently his ‘Fire Tests Gold’ EP (released 26th April) 2019 has already seen Tom perform across Europe and he is currently on tour in the US taking in NYC, NJ, Philadelphia and DC, whilst also appearing on Italian artist Victor Kwality's recent EP 'Dinosauri'. Numerous collaborations including an instrumental project with US artist Trevor Gordon-Hall and another solo electronic project are all set for release this year which is proving to be the busiest yet for the ever-active 1403.
