Song: Tom Welsh – Time Runs Away With You review

by Philip Moss

‘Nothing’s lost if you’re able to use the experience in some way,’ reflects songwriter, Tom Welsh, on the period that new single, Time Runs Away With You came from. Emphasising that no there is nothing wrong in replaying the past, as long as you can take the moments of positivity and move on.

As part of a double release along with Everything That Might Be, Welsh has produced Time Runs Away With You with a backing band that features Gallery songwriter, Emily Mercer. Welsh’s rich, heartfelt sound is rooted in the craftsmanship of Bruce Springsteen and Jeff Tweedy – growing from its strummed beginnings into a vista of emotional outpouring, while vocally recalling fellow North West native, James Skelly.

Having been writing songs for over ten years, Welsh has previously been contented by the process of creation and by feeling that his music ‘stood up’ to his own standards. But with a new found motivation to let Time Runs Away With You and Everything That Might Be out into the world, Welsh is ready to stop pressing rewind, and is looking firmly to the future.
