Tom Grennan has announced a new UK headline tour for September and October, to follow appearances at 19 festivals across the country this summer.
Tom’s new EP ‘Release the Brakes’ is out now, and receiving high-profile support from Radio 1, XFM and more. Listen to lead track Praying here http://smarturl.it/TGPrayingPseudo.
‘Release The Brakes’ is the follow-up to Tom’s debut EP ‘Something in the Water’ which was released in September last year and was the catalyst for the whirlwind of end of year polls and tips for 2017 including BBC Sound Poll, MTV Names of 2017 and coming joint second in The Guardian’s Poll of Polls.
Production wise, ‘Release the Brakes’ is a step up from ‘Something in the Water’, a bigger sound with fire in its belly and Grennan’s raspy, soulful vocals at the heart of every track. The lead track ‘Praying’ is a song of personal journeys and hope, “The inspiration came from being on a pathway without direction but knowing that there’s a better path to be on and waiting on the brighter days to come” says Grennan.
In the Autumn of last year Grennan guested on the Chase & Status single ‘All Goes Wrong’ which saw him make his debut performance on Later with Jools Holland, performing at MOBO Awards and recording an incredible Live Lounge for Clara Amfo.
Grennan follows a sold-out UK tour earlier this year with another sell-out at London’s Union Chapel on April 20th and a string of festival shows through the summer, including Reading and Leeds.
His live stature continues to grow with a previously announced London Koko show and a new headline tour in September and October.
