Singer/songwriter Tom Walker, whose single, Just You And I, is currently number four in the UK charts, says the highlight of his career so far was performing at the famous Glastonbury festival.

The multi-instrumentalist, who taught himself drums, guitar, piano and bass guitar, was invited to perform at the 2017 Glastonbury.

"It was a massive honour, I've been going for a few years now so it was mental to play live onstage then perform on the Treehouse session on BBC Two with Huw Stephens and Lauren Laverne. It doesn't really get any better than that,'' said Tom.

Tomorrow tickets go on sale for his UK tour, including a gig in Swindon at the Oasis Leisure Centre in North Star.

Best known for his top ten single Leave A Light On, Tom will be playing songs from his debut album, What A Time To Be Alive, which made it to number one in the album charts.

Tom was born in Glasgow but raised in Manchester and had his first guitar in 1994. He grew up listening to his dad's record collection of Ray Charles, The Police and Bob Marley but soon, like a musical sponge, began soaking up a wide variety of music from Michael Jackson to AC/DC.

"Both my parents have been there for me through thick and thin,'' he said.

His own style is hard to pin down, although his gravelly voice is unmistakeable. He sings a mix of hip hop, pop, indie and rock with, as he says himself, a sprinkle of reggae.

He studied at the London College of Contemporary Music and began collaborating with his house mates Whilk & Miskey in their home studio.

His first offering in 2016, Sun Goes Down featuring poet/musician Kojey Radical, won him BBC Radio 1 airplay. His single, Heartland, was co-written and produced by Naughty Boy.

Tom netted support slots with George Ezra, Gallant and Jake Bugg before touring America with The Script.

He won the Best Breakthrough Act in the recent 2019 Britt Awards and Leave The Light On was nominated as Best British single.

Tom will be in Swindon at the Oasis on Wednesday, November 6 and tickets are available from
