Jake Bugg, the fast-rising hitmaker from Nottingham has announced a new set of dates, his first for 2013. This will be his biggest UK headline tour so far, and will follow his forthcoming sell-out autumn tour, as well as dates in Europe and the US with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Snow Patrol.
Following his sold out tour this month, Tom Odell will be performing more dates in the UK this October. Winner of the Brits Critics' Choice Award for 2013, the year is shaping up to be huge for Tom Odell.
If there’s a certain youthful diffidence surrounding the remarkable Tom Odell it’s tempered with a sense of self-awareness which belies his mere 21 years on this planet. A beguiling mixture of idealism (he wants the music to do the talking, preferably releasing one album a year) and self confidence (he seems to exist happily in his own musical world) becomes somewhat incendiary when coupled with music as magnificently formed as that on his forthcoming debut album.
For this young Chichester-born maverick, the song is everything. Having written his own material since the age of 13, it was an eventual move to Brighton which precipitated his immersion in a scene which saw him quite simply have the confidence to walk into pubs and clubs and ask to perform on the spot.
Signed to Lily Allen Cooper’s label, his new EP Songs From Another Love showcases his gentle yet powerful vocals alongside his achingly beautiful lyrics. Having recently performed on Jools Holland, Tom Odell is set to take 2013 by storm.
