On Wednesday 29th of March, Brighton’s top music venue Concord 2, will welcome the British singer, songwriter and Brit Award winner Tom Walker for a one-night-only performance.
The 31-year-old singer rose to fame in 2018 after his breakthrough single “Leave a Light On”, which peaked at number 7 on the UK singles chart in June 2018.
Born in Kilsyth, Scotland, he studied at the stage school London College of Creative Media, and growing up, he listened to Ray Charles, The Police and Bob Marley. He originally taught himself how to play the drums, guitar, piano and bass and specialises in the indie, folk, rock and alternative-pop genres.
In 2017, he released “Just You and I” from his debut studio album “What a Time to Be Alive”. The song reached the top three of the UK Singles Chart and the top 10 of the Irish Singles Chart in 2019. It also led to Walker being chosen as Elvis Duran’s Artist of the Month, appearing on NBC’s Today show, where he performed the song.
The track gained a lot of popularity, and soon Walker was named as one of the new additions to BBC Radio 1’s Brit List. Following his rise in popularity, Walker began to perform support acts for artists such as George Ezra, Gallant Jake Bugg and The Script.
In 2021 during “Royal Carols: Together at Christmas”, a Christmas carol service held at Westminster Abbey, he performed “For Those Who Can’t Be Here”.
It was hosted by the Duchess of Cambridge, who even joined him for the song, and she confessed it was her first time playing the piano with another artist in seven years. Other big music names, including Ellie Goulding and Leona Lewis also performed during the service.
Tom Walker is currently working on his second studio album, and his performance in Brighton, presented by Goldenvoice has been anticipated by many.
Tickets start from £26, and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. The event is 14+ only and scheduled for 7:30pm on Wednesday 29 March.
