One To Watch: Tom A Smith on meeting Elton John, North-East supremacy with Sam Fender and his new EP

Reading now: 155

There is working for the graft, and then there is playing your first gig aged just eight (eight!) years old and securing your first Glastonbury slot at 11.

Meet Tom A Smith, now the wisened old age of 18, the indie-rock singer who is destined for great things. Hailing from Sunderland, Tom is the latest in a line of bright music hopefuls from the North of England, such as Sam Fender and L Devine, two contemporaries he happens to count as friends.

With the release of his recent second EP, EP 2, Tom is ready to grow up and grow out in his craft. He makes sparkling, crunching indie-rock with the soul and melody of great pop tunes, present in tracks like Man Overboard and Could I Live With Being Fake.

And the greatest thing about it all? The best is yet to come. You know, when we released the first EP, we were chuffed [with the reaction] but the second has been even more fantastic.
