Fly53 Musical Distraction – Tom Odell

This weeks musical distraction has been grabbing our attention for some months now with his incredible talent for writing exquisite songs with a depth and maturity far beyond his years. Recently featured in our hot of the press Fanzine #13 as one to watch, we know Tom isn’t going to disappoint as we slide into 2013.

At the ripe old age of 21, Chichester-born Tom Odell has not only landed a recording contract with major label and a support slot on Jake Bugg’s amazing tour he’s also found the time to win the  2013 critics choice award. Impressive huh?

His debut EP ‘Songs From Another Love,’ (released digitally on the 29th of October) has been grabbing the attention of the musical elite and receiving rave reviews from all those who have heard it (including us) – all four of its tracks are equally impressive in their own right. It offers heartbreaking meloncholy piano pieces, erupting grand show-stopping jazz moments, drama, beauty, excitement and emotion. One word. Epic.

Whats more, thats all just to whet our appetite for his debut album on the cards for next year. We can’t wait.
