Tom Odell - Real Love
23 year-old Tom is from Chichester in West Sussex. He has played piano from the age of 7, began writing music as a teenager and studied at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music. Tom was recently voted the Critics Choice Award winner at the 2013 Brit Awards, becoming the 1st male artist to claim the trophy after the likes of Emeli Sande, Adele and Jessie J. He names Elton John and Bruce Springsteen as some of his biggest musical influences. He is signed to Lily Allen’s record label who said he reminded her of a young David Bowie when she saw him perform. After 4 singles from his debut Number 1 album ‘Long Way Down’, this song is a cover of a track written by John Lennon and originally performed by The Beatles. Tom’s version is being used as the music on a high profile Christmas TV commercial.
