If you take some time to think about it, you might come to the conclusion that the internet is a massive privilege.
Not every human on this planet has access to it, yet most of us seem to take it for granted.
I know, I do most of the time.
To have access to a medium that lets to you connect with people from all over the world,
delivers information at any given time and gives you the opportunity to express yourself - how can we take this for granted?
Most of the acts you see featured on HITS have either submitted their work by email, or have been discovered on a random stroll through the music sites of the world wide web.
One artist I discovered rather randomly is Tom Crouch.
And guess what? I'm going to tell you a bit more about him now.
Tom Crouch is a London, UK based singer/songwriter and musician.
His music offers many layers and facets and could be genrefied as Alternative with sprinkles of Blues and Folk.
Tom recently independently released his debut EP "A Civil War Of Head & Heart" (April 11th 2016).
The EP was recorded in studios across the USA and UK.
The young musician isn't new to the industry though; over the years Tom has collaborated with artists such as Gabrielle Aplin and Lauren Aquilina. He supported John Mayer (#goals!) and HAIM.
Oh, and Tom also played loads of festivals; Glastonbury, iTunes Festival and T in the Park - just to name a few.
The song I'd like to introduce to you as our Song Of The Day, is Tom's track "Safe In My Arms", which you can find on his debut EP.
"Safe In My Arms" is a very calm track which wins you over with its beautiful arrangements.
The softly played electric guitar sets the scene and almost seems to wrap you up like a comforting blanket.
Tom's voice stands out and definitely guides you through the track.
He presents the very personal and endearing lyrics in a charming and expressive manner.
Even though you'd describe his voice as a strong and warm one, he casually throws a falsetto your way every now and then.
It is pretty obvious that Tom Crouch is not just a singer, he's also a songwriter.
And a bloody great one, to say the least.
We adore his sound!
