It appears Tom Grennan is an Englishman of many talents: once a promising football player, nowadays a rising pop star. Out of everyone, Grennan’s musical talent took himself by surprise the most. Funnily enough, he discovered it incidentally, when he performed a plastered rendition of The Kooks’ Seaside. And, in true heroic folk story fashion, Grennan kept scoring. After contributing to a track from Chase & Status, a performance in Charli XCX’s video for Boys and own breakthrough single Found What I’ve Been Looking For, his smooth and slick soul pop is tailor-made for the sound of 2018. Grennan’s gruff voice really comes into its own during his live performances.
