Tom Jones has been called a musical “shapeshifter,” someone who could transition gracefully in multiple genres. He is known around the world for his deep sultry voice. His songs topped the charts in both America and the U.K and his first big hit, “It’s Not Unusual,” graced the ears of music fans everywhere in 1965.
The singer’s performing scope has included pop, R&B, show tunes, country, dance, and soul. This versatility helped him become the mega-star that we know of today. But before Tom rose to stardom, he had to climb his way up to the top from a small town in South Wales.
