Set to take 2017 by storm, British newcomer Tom Walker not only announces the release of his new EP ‘Blessings’ April 21st on Relentless Records, but also an 8 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 produced by Jim Abbiss (Adele, Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian) alongside an alternative version of Play Dead. The EP shows the two sides to Tom Walker, the intimate stripped back side (as seen on lead track ‘Blessings’) 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 with a performance on the prestigious Today Show on Monday and three live shows in LA and New York over the coming weeks.
Live, Tom played a sold out headline tour in January including a show at the Camden Assembly and plays 8 UK dates in May as well as two BBC introducing shows in April in Manchester and London.
