This review is from: Open The Skylights (Audio CD) Open the Skylights Tom Houston So, many will have yet to acquaint themselves with the delightful laid back wonder of Scotland's very own Tom Houston. A seasoned performer, multi-talented musician and singer/songwriter who is well known within the scene, his music is laid back while tugging on the heart strings gently.

“BIG congratulations on the ‘Open the Skylights’ album, Tom. It’s a very fine set of songs, which I enjoyed listening to a great deal. A mix of lovely melodies and haunting tunes throughout. And those sharp, dark lyrics of yours cutting through all of them. Overall, a fabulous job done. Hope you’re proud of it. You should be”
