Tom Lynam

Russian-born singer/songwriter, Larissa Tormey, has dedicated the official music video for her latest single, Old Fashioned, to the late Tom Lynam.

Her neighbour and friend passed away in a tractor crash a short while after he starred in the production.

On first hearing the news, Larissa immediately decided to postpone her plans to release the video.

However, after speaking with Tom’s family and receiving their permission, she premiered it last week on her official Facebook page.
