If you are looking for new music inspiration then look no further as I introduce you to the amazing talent that is Tom Grennan.
Born in Bedford, the now London based singer songwriter has had an exciting couple of years but this is about to accelerate through 2017 and the success will no doubt bring his name and music streaming into the ears of the world.
Having originally been set to embark on a professional football career, Grennan only discovered his musical talents following a few drinks at a party as a teenager and subsequently joining a band in school who covered the likes of the Artic Monkeys. Turning his back on a prosperous sporting career could well have been the best decision of his life after posting music to his Facebook page and receiving a message from his now Manager asking to meet for a chat.
Now signed to Insanity Records, Grennan first found fame after appearing on the Chase and Status track “All goes wrong.” The drum and bass track demonstrates an incredible bassline which paves the way for Tom Grennan and his raspy, power house vocals.
Grennan released his debut EP “Something in the Water” in October 2016 and with a sound that slots neatly into the blues and soul genre, he is drumming up a decent fan base already having sold out most of his recent headline tour including Bush Hall in London. Having already been likened to the easily identifiable Maverick Sabre and Paulo Nutini, 21 year old Tom Grennan is a performer in his own right and his live sets are full of energy, excitement and engaging musical performances.
Suffering from dyslexia, Grennan can at times struggle with writing and spends most of his time piecing bits together and I can hand on heart say that however he does it, we do not want him to stop! He takes inspiration from the lives of people around him aswell as himself which means the songs are relatable. You only have to see the videos from his recent gigs including the incredibly beautiful Union Chapel, London, to see how much he connects with his audience.
With a summer full of live shows, Tom Grennan will be performing at many incredible festivals including Truck Festival (21-23 July), Y Not Festival (27-30 July) and Victorious Festival (25-27 August) to name but a few. His sets will no doubt include the beautiful “Sweet Hallalulah” and we also hope to hear more from his album which is due for release later this year.
