The 26-year old singer-songwriter from Bedford in the UK will be kicking off his 2022 tour for his new album ‘Evering Road’. The highly anticipated European tour was originally scheduled for May 2020, but unfortunately had to be postponed due to Coronavirus.
Tom’s first studio album, titled ‘Lighting Matches’ was one of the 10 best-selling debuts of 2018. The album encompassed Tom’s emotional, careworn voice, featuring popular songs like ‘Found What I’ve Been Looking For’, ‘Barbed Wire’ and ‘Something In The Water‘.
His new album, released back in March, takes influence from gospel and soul music, and has been described by Tom as a ‘therapeutic experience’. Discussing the themes behind his new album, Tom adds:
“This album has helped me through one of the toughest times of my life. Evering Road documents a transitional stage for me, where I felt I’ve learnt so much and grown into a new man, moving myself into a new calm and positive space.”
“Gospel and soul have been a huge influence on me during this album, for me it’s so emotional yet uplifting, and I wanted to translate this DNA through my music. I’m just BUZZING for people to hear it, so hopefully it can be a lifeboat of sorts for at least one person.”
Tickets for Tom Grennans 2022 gig at Live at the Marquee go on sale on at 9am on Thursday October 28 on the Ticketmaster website.
