We say

Tom Walker is enjoying a meteoric rise. His new single Leave A Light On, released today, is a brilliant emotional piano led song which builds to a crescendo of skittering drums and pitched-up synths. Co-written and produced by Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran, Clean Bandit, P!nk, Rita Ora, Liam Payne), we love the deliberate sense of space and depth within the mix which allows Tom’s powerful vocals to resonate with strength. Support for the Glasgow-born, Manchester-raised singer has been building all year with TV performances at Glastonbury Treehouse on BBC2 and on the Today Show in the US. Recent press includes Sunday Times Culture "Breaking Act", The Sun (Bizarre), Pigeons & Planes, Clash, Shortlist and Wonderland, and he’s guaranteed playlist positioning at Radio 1 as part of the Brit List. Streaming support is big too, with top placement on Spotify, Apple and others helping to generate over 50 million plays across his repertoire so far. Active on the road, he is currently supporting The Script in the US and will embark on an eight date UK headline tour next month including a London show at The Garage on 29 November before hotfooting across Europe with Hurts. With the quality of this single, Tom’s on the edge of the big time and we're certain to see him in the mix for Brits Critics' Choice for 2018.
