The track “Leave A Light On” has become an international breakthrough hit for Tom Walker, as it achieved 2x Platinum in Italy & Switzerland, Platinum in France, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and gold in Germany and Canada. Born in Scotland and raised in Manchester, Walker became obsessed with his father’s record collection at a young age, finding inspiration in Ray Charles, The Police, and Bob Marley, to name a few. By 2016, the troubadour uncovered his own sound through layering rap-style production, electronic shine, and traditional acoustic power fueled by dynamic powerhouse pipes. As songs such as “Fly Away With Me” took off, Walker earned extensive praise and took him across the globe on his own tours, and supporting stints alongside the likes of Gallant, Jake Bugg, and a 2017 U.S. tour where he supported multiplatinum Dublin rockers The Script. Walker just released his new single “Angels” from his forthcoming debut album, What a Time to be Alive, which slated for release on October 19, 2018 on Relentless Records.
