The music industry is a rather tricky one. There are people who have spent an entire lifetime trying to get a foot into the proverbial door, others have accidentally stumbled upon fame while others simply have it handed to them.
Music means many things to many people. Regardless of its definition, the general consensus is that it is a form of expression where the artists get to express that which they cannot simply speak about and the listeners get to express that which they are going through via their choice of music.
A voice like that of Tom Walker is a perfect fit to this general consensus. His choice in music genre has seen him utilise his husky, rough around the edges, type of voice to move people all over the world. This graduate of London College of Creative Media gained his fame in 2017 after releasing the single Leave a light on. It was later nominated for the Best British Single category of the Brit awards.
Thanks to this song that was co-written as well as co-produced by Steve Mac, Tom walker bagged the Breakthrough Artist Act during this year’s Brit Awards. His first single You and I was released in 2017 and saw him become named as the artist of the month by Elvis Duran and saw him become a guest on NBC’s Today show.
Soon after, Walker embarked on the release of his of his EP debut tilted Blessings which was also the name of one of the trucks on the EP. His truck heartland that was released in August of 2017 saw his name included on BBC Radio’s playlist and later BBC Radio 1.
His music is known to inspire various emotions in its listeners. His music addresses various matters of the heart from good old love to friendship to finding your way back to your former glory. It is, therefore, rather befitting that he would name his debut album, What a time to be alive.
The singer song writer is set to play at Auckland’s Power station in New Zealand on the 20th of August 2019. He is, however, no stranger to live performances as he has played supporting roles for The Script, George Ezra, Jake Bugg and Gallant.
His humility definitely adds to his charm. He was sure to give a shout out to his grandmother for the constant support. Kudos granny for believing in the talent that is Tom Walker.
