Combining hip-hop beats with traditional songwriting – and a pinch of northern charm for good measure – Tom Walker’s soulful sound has caught on fast on both sides of the pond.
Last year, his track Just You and I went top 30 in Billboard’s AC chart, he was added to the BBC Radio 1 Brits List and his heartfelt acoustic rendition of Blessings was featured on BBC Two’s Saturday night Glastonbury coverage.
Add over 41 million streams of his music to the mix and it’s clear why the singer and multi-instrumentalist’s name has appeared on so many ‘ones to watch’ lists this year, including BBC Music’s Sound of 2018 longlist.
With a debut album due for release this year, 2018 is set to be huge for the Mancunian vocal powerhouse.
