Tom Simpson is a DJ and musician best known as the former keyboardist of Snow Patrol. Tom grew up in Dundee and studied Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. Tom has travelled far and wide with Snow Patrol but Dundee means home to him.

I always have the best laughs here and the best nights out! One of my favourite places to go out in Dundee has to be the Perth Road. 

The great thing about Dundee is how friendly the people are. It's only when you've lived in much bigger cities, like London or LA that you appreciate the fact that people say hello and will have a chat at the drop of a hat. 

There's a lot to be proud of here - I feel really happy when I am coming back to the city after a trip away - that first view of the River Tay, either from the air, road or train, is just fantastic. We have some fantastic buildings here and the plans to reconnect the city to the water are brilliant.

The way I feel about Dundee isn't something that's obvious - it's just a feeling of a place, something that's hard to define, but it's just there.
