THE FRESHLY TIPPED FOR 2017 TOM GRENNAN COMES TO THE CAPITAL
Tom Grennan will play The Globe, Cardiff on the 29th of September as part of his UK tour. Tickets go on sale 10am 24th of March.
Born in Bedford but based in London, singer-songwriter Tom Grennan first found fame as the guest vocalist on Chase & Status's track When It All Goes Wrong. But it might not have turned out that way. As a teenager, he had a promising football career, playing for Luton Town, Northampton Town, Aston Villa and Stevenage. Instead of pursuing the sport, toms instincts led him to music and he hasn’t looked back since. His voice has drawn comparisons to Jamie T, Paolo Nutini and Amy Winehouse and it's no surprise as it has hints of reggae, Northern soul and R&B with an ability to cross genres.
He’s been hailed as “A future superstar in the making” – Independent and been praised for his “Honest, open, and frank songwriting” – Clash Music. He was part of the shortlist for BBC Radio 1's coveted Sound Of poll included Tom in the 2017 line-up alongside other hyped vocalists Rag'n'Bone Man Ray BLK. Additionally he was part of MTV’s Brand New for 2017 list and has been featured in Music Week. It seems he's part of a new wave of British artists who boast their voice as the main selling point, disregarding all the other theatrics that come with selling music which is apparent on his latest EP “Something in the Water”!
