Tom Grennan Sang At A Party Once & Now He's Performing With Chase & Status...!
We get to know our next Brand New For 2017 nominee...
Bedford boy Tom Grennan is the next MTV Brand New For 2017 nominee we're throwing a spotlight on. You'll recognise his voice from Chase & Status' epic 'All Goes Wrong', but as a newcomer with just one official EP out you'll be forgiven for not knowing his name. For now.
Telling us how he got into the game in our exclusive interview, Tom said: "I was at a party. [I] Never really sung before and I started singing. I went back to school and everyone was like, ‘oi, you were singing at the party’, I was like ‘allow it, no I weren’t’. A couple of my mates asked if I wanted to join a band to help them out with their A Level piece they were doing and that’s where I got the love for it."

Admitting that that first gig was "pretty rubbish, mate," stepping out at Wireless Festival last year to join Chase & Status must have made it all worth while. Featuring on 'All Goes Wrong', from Chase & Status' forthcoming album, Tom described his highlight of 2016 when he heard it for the first time on the radio:
"I was in Camden, my mates had a gig and I was looking at the time and it was on at about eight o’clock or something. I had to bolt down Camden High Street looking for a car, ordered an Uber. Uber was taking too long and then I found my mates who were in their little bus, I was like ‘bang on the radio, bang on the radio!’ And then put the radio on and just got the beginning of it, so yeah that was probably a highlight."

We've been rinsing 'All Goes Wrong' as well as the title track from his Something In The Water EP since he released it last October, and now we're desperate to hear more.
"What can you expect from me in 2017?" he teased. "New EP, new music and a headline tour in February so yeah, buzzing, can’t wait."
