Last year, Tom Walker made waves with his critically acclaimed single, “Leave A Light On,” which attained platinum in a multitude of countries, reached number one on multiple charts, and has garnered over 390 million streams to this day. The success of the single put Walker on the radar as a promising and rapidly growing name in the music world.
The frenzy surrounding his breakout single followed him well into 2019, which earned him not only two nominations for the Brit Awards 2019 but more importantly, a win for “British Breakthrough Act.” The award places him alongside other highly praised and well-established recipients, such as Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Dua Lipa, to name a few.
The victory along with the release of his newest single, an updated version of “Just You And I,” brings Walker into the spotlight just in time for his long-awaited upcoming debut album, What A Time To Be Alive, due March 1. The album is set to bring more of what fans have come to love about Walker: his lyrical authenticity combined and brilliantly complex instrumentation, elements which create anthems we cannot help but belt out loud to.
As 2019 continues to unfold, we cannot wait to see what else is lined up for Walker. We do know one thing for sure, he is one you do not want to take your eyes off of.
