Singer, songwriter and musician, Tom Odell was propelled straight to the forefront of the mainstream when his
debut EP, Songs From Another Love, was released in 2012, leading him to win a BRITs Critics’ Choice Award in 2013 and a place in BBC’s coveted Sound Of list. Later that year, his platinum-selling debut album Long Way Down was released to critical acclaim and went straight to #1 on the UK Albums Chart. In 2014 Tom won the prestigious title of Songwriter Of The Year at the Ivor Novello Awards before his stunning cover of The Beatles’ ‘Real Love’ accompanied the highly anticipated and long-cherished John Lewis Christmas advert. Tom went on to release his second studio album, Wrong Crowd, in 2016, which charted at #2 and is BPI certified Gold, and his third studio album, Jubilee
Road, was released in 2018.
Tom’s dedicated work ethic became an obsession that culminated in crippling anxiety, leading to a dark period of
mental health that Tom wrote his way through. These broader lyrical horizons needed to be matched by a musical expansion, coming in the form of his genre-bending 2021 fourth studio album, Monsters, the final album to fulfil his major label record deal with Columbia Records. Now an independent artist, free from the constraints of a major label, Tom Odell has stripped things back. Tom will be playing music from his new album for us live at TEDxSoho.
