Q&A with Tom Grennan

What are you listening to at the moment?

I'm listening to Childish Gambino at the minute, I’m really into his album Awaken, My Love!

But to be honest right now I’m constantly writing and in the studio, so I haven't really been listening to much music apart from my own – ha!

How are you feeling after being named on so many ‘Sound Of’/Ones to Watch lists for 2017?

It's an unbelievable feeling. To be put on lists next to such wicked talent and to be recognised for what I'm doing is amazing!!!

What are your plans for 2017?

In February Im releasing a new EP and I’ve got my first UK headline tour which I’m buzzing for. Until then I’m spending all my time in the studio, writing and recording so yeah - 2017 bring it on!
