How to Dress Well, a.k.a. Tom Krell, has become the poster child for alternative R&B with his haunting compositions and cerebral lyrics. Krell's artistic vision informs all aspects of HTDW, from the project's striking music videos to its critically acclaimed live shows where he's joined by a small but talented group of backing musicians that bring new depth to his intimate productions. Whether he's treating ticket buyers to cuts from his debut album or singing tracks from 2014's What Is This Heart?, Krell never fails to mesmerize on his unforgettable tours.
American artist and Philosophy PhD candidate Tom Krell began releasing music as How To Dress Well via his blog in 2009. In 2010 he released his first official single "Ready for the World", following up a few months later with his debut full-length Love Remains, which collected the best of his early recordings. The album was a hit with critics and earned him a niche following, but its reception paled in comparison to his 2012 follow-up album Total Loss. That album topped numerous year-end lists and earned him legions of devoted fans, paving the way for extensive touring throughout the US and Europe. Back in 2014 with his third album What Is This Heart?, Krell continues to floor ticket buyers with intimate performances on his must-see tours.
