Set to take 2017 by storm, British newcomer Tom Walker not only announces the release of his new EP ‘Blessings’ May 12th on Relentless Records, but also a 7 date UK tour including his biggest headline show to date at London’s Omeara on the 24th May.
The EP features three new tracks written by Tom Walker and co-produced with Jim Abbiss (Adele, Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian) alongside an alternative version of Play Dead and future hit in the making ‘Just You & I’ which has already had an astonishing 12 million streams. The EP shows the two sides to Tom Walker, the intimate stripped back side (as seen on lead track ‘Blessings’ and ‘Just You & I’) and the more up-beat, produced side on ‘Karma’ and ‘Rapture’.
Having already found critical acclaim in the UK from tastemakers everywhere including Pigeons & Planes, Sunday Times and Clash as well as BBC Radio1, BBC 1Xtra and Beats1, Tom is beginning to make waves in the US having performed on the prestigious Today Show and played three sold out shows in LA and New York.
Live, Tom played a sold out headline tour in January including a show at the Camden Assembly and plays 7 UK dates in May as well as two BBC introducing shows in April in Manchester and London.
