Thomas Timothy Vernon-Kell (born 10 May 1981) is a self-taught t musician who works under the name of Tom Vek. Born in Hounslow, London, he signed to the small label Tummy Touch Records in 2001, having spent the previous eight years writing and recording in his parents' garage. Vek's debut album We Have Sound was recorded whilst he completed a graphic design degree.

Luck is the third studio album by artist Tom Vek, released on 9 June 2014. The first single "Sherman (Animals in the Jungle)" was released on 11 April 2014.

There are flashes of brilliance but the singer's third album misfires too often. Back in the mid-’00s, when indie rock was the sort of thing people would talk about in bars, the correct response to the words ‘Tom Vek’ was ‘underrated’. He’d found that perfect niche, in which every member of his fanbase felt that they, uniquely, had found something special that the wider world wasn’t aware of, and so constantly broadcast this to the wider world.

Vek conveys the anxiety and anger coursing through these tracks with hectic beats and synths that seem to buzz with impatience, resulting in tracks that are equally unsettling and appealing, like the Asian-tinged "Broke

The delightfully oddball indie-disco on his 2005 debut album dipped into everything from new wave to electro, and after 2011’s similarly eclectic ‘Leisure Seizure’, Vek is back with an album that zones in on polished, personal songwriting, while still radiating plenty of weird audio energy. Luck’ generally rides through electronic-dipped garage-rock with a playful, punky attitude and nostalgic nods to ’90s indie
