Tom Odell. Get used to hearing that name.
And that voice, what a voice,
Tom’s single, “Another Love” is brilliant.
On the first listen, it’s great. But after a few listens, the song really grew on me and it has been on repeat for the last few days.
Tom’s got a great voice, and is a talented songwriter. Tom also has an incredible ability in that his songs and lyrics really based on real emotions that are very relatable and connect with the listener.
It was recently announced that Tom was this years winner of the BRITS Critics’ Choice Award. Previous winners include: Emeli Sande, Jessie J, Ellie Goulding, Florence And The Machine and Adele. That’s amazing company… No pressure Tom!
Tom recently released his first EP, Songs From Another Love EP, and is working on his debut album Long Way Down, which will be released on the 15th of April. It was initially set for the 17th of June, but was moved up, presumably due to interest and attention from the Critics’ Choice win.
Judging from “Another Love” and the previous winners of the BRITS Critics’ Choice Award, we are going to hear a lot more from Tom the next few years. And I cannot wait.
