Just discovered Tom and I can’t stop listening to his music, especially “another love.” Can’t wait to hear his new ep.

Odell like yodel?
No, like, ‘Oh well’.
Does he yodel?
Also no, but this 22-year-old alt.folkie from Chichester does write, sing and play piano with lots of chart promise.
Ah, like Chris Martin from Coldplay.
To a degree, but Odell is closer to old piano-wielding Wigan favourites Starsailor. His fragile voice often sounds ready to break just before he launches into a heady blues yowl.
Why should I let this particular watery eyed wonder into my life?
This one comes pre-approved. Odell won the Brits Critics’ Choice Award this year and is one of the BBC’s Sounds of 2013. He’s also in favour with US megastar Taylor Swift – the two are rumoured to have been flirting at the Brits.
How do I get a piece of the action?
His debut album ‘Long Way Down’ is out April 15, but he’s also playing a string of shows in London this year, which include Somerset House's Summer Series. Grab your tickets without Odell-ay.
