“With Paolo Nutini-esque tones, Tom’s vocals are hypnotically beautiful and completely enchanting” Wonderland Magazine
“Grennan has an incredible voice and he’s an electrifying live performer: there’s something about his lyrics that really hit home as well, in the same way as Kate Tempest or Paolo Nutini” The Independent
“A sensitive, soulful songwriter” The Guardian
What a year it’s been for Tom Grennan, not only selling out his recent UK tour with an incredible show at Shepherds Bush Empire, he went on to announce his Brixton Academy headline show and became one of the only recent artists to do so ahead of their debut album release. His October tour has over 30k tickets combined and this summer he’ll be appearing at 14 festivals, performing in from of over of over half a million people, making him one of the hottest tickets in the UK at the moment.
Barbed Wire is the follow-up single to Sober which featured on Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio X, Absolute and Virgin daytime playlists and saw him break into the Top 40 airplay charts. Already a firm live favorite, Barbed Wire is an uplifting anthem about not letting anything hold you back, ensuring you bring people up with you and kicking back at others who say you can’t “Gotta Stand Tall and Aim Higher, don’t touch the barbed wire”.
Barbed Wire is taken from Grennan’s highly anticipated debut album Lighting Matches which is released on 6th July on Insanity Records. The album is a personal journey for Grennan, exploring sobriety, love, depression, loneliness and reveals an openness and vulnerability ahead of his years. ‘Lighting Matches’ sees Tom working with Grammy award winning producer Fraser T Smith (Stormzy / Adele / Kano / Plan B) and Dan Grech (Liam Gallagher / Killers / Radiohead) and is set to be one of the most important albums of 2018.
Lighting Matches also features the single Found What I’ve Been Looking For, which was being used as the title music to Sky Sports’ Premier League coverage and has racked up over 20 million streams.
