After finishing his epic sold out spring UK tour with a triumphant, sold out London show at Koko last month, Tom Walker announces a 9 date October UK tour Dates including a show at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire on October 17th.
Tom’s career defining new single ‘Leave A Light On’ looks set to establish him as the country’s next breakout global star. Produced by Steve Mac, the Brit Awards 2018 Producer Of The Year, ‘Leave A Light On’ was written by Tom and Steve and can currently be heard on the new Sony Bravia TV advert currently on TV in Europe and in the UK next month.
The single is an emotional tour de force currently at #15 in the global Shazam Chart, topping the Itunes chart in 8 European countries, going platinum in Italy and Switzerland, gold in Germany and France and racking up over 110 million streams and views globally. Tom recently performed for the second time on the Today show in the USA and has seen ‘Leave A Light On’ become the second most added track at hot AC Radio.
Having made both the BBC Sound Poll and MTV Brand New 2018 lists, and been picked by Radio 1 for their influential Brit List, the Scottish born, Manchester raised singer/songwriter has seen his anthemic songs explode into the public conscience. Tom, is currently putting the finishing touches to his debut LP.
At 12 years old – the age most of us are aimlessly riding bikes or trying to avoid homework –Mahalia was cradling her guitar and penning love songs. With her entrancing, soulful tones, wise-yet-relatable wordplay and intuitive sense of melody, it quickly became clear that she had an innate musicality and that she’d be doing this for the rest of her life.
In the time since she first picked up that guitar she’s dropped a scattering of releases – from 2012’s indie-flecked acoustic dream ‘Head Space’ to 2015’s gorgeously understated 4-track EP ‘Never Change’ – and 2016’s genre-flipping mixtape ‘Diary of Me’.
But for Mahalia, it feels as if she’s just getting started.
