MUSIC / Tom Odell
Here's a voice like I haven't heard in a while. Blues, cracked, at times croonish and with an intensity well beyond his age.
Tom Odell is a 22 year old British songwriter whose debut album Long Way Down was released two days ago. With his EP Songs From Another Love he won the BRITs Critics' Choice Awards 2013, a prize given to those artists who are likely to gain mainstream success but have not yet released their debut album.
His fame is now rising and the debate's open: is the boy gaining fans thanks to his catchy ballads and blond locks, or does he have what it really takes to be considered a true artist? Watch him perform live - even through video - and I think you'll find the answer.
ps. Video of the first single, "Another Love".
One of my favourite songs, "Hold Me" and its stunning live version at the Burberry Prorsum Womenswear AW13 show.
Cover of The Beatles' "Oh Darling" and Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble".
