UK singer-songwriter Tom Grennan released his second album Evering Road earlier this year alongside singles like mega-hit ‘Little Bit of Love’, ‘By Your Side’ Ella Henderson collab ‘Let’s Go Home Together’ and more.
The album, which scored a number 1 chart placing in the UK, skyrocketed Grennan to become one of the top 200 most streamed artists in the world and earned him a reputation as an artist demonstrably on the rise.
Australian fans will be able to experience the album live very soon, with Grennan’s announcement of his Australian headline tour in 2022. The run of dates will kick off in June of next year at the Triffid in Brisbane before continuing on to 170 Russell in Melbourne and wrapping up at Sydney’s Factory Theatre.
In the lead up to those special, long-awaited shows, we caught up with Grennan to suss out exactly which artists inspire him.
The Back To Black album; wow. Amy’s voice: the way she plays with melodies is what I wanted to try on the record.
He’s a legend. I listened A LOT to the album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road from Elton.
Alex Turner for sure, the frontman of Arctic Monkeys. The way that he makes people think through music.
Ray Charles. What a musician. He definitely inspired the making of the album.
Her voice is unreal! I wanted to put a modern twist on it and do my own thing.
