Old Tom & the Lookouts is a Boston-based Indie-Folk band, creating hopeful, evocative music about mental health. The lyrically driven project, shared through the lens of writer and singer, Alex, delivers a minimalist tone, accompanied by lush string arrangements, witty and brooding lyrics, soulful melodies, and striking harmonies.


The band’s debut record, Beautiful or Not, set to release on December 5th, pays homage to influences, Frightened Rabbit, Phoebe Bridgers, and Tom Waits, capturing a new voice within the Indie-Folk genre.


Shortly after Old Tom & the Lookouts’ debut performance at Club Passim’s Campfire Festival (Sept. 2020), the band signed with Strawberry Cat Records.
