You know there’s something special about an artist when the one and only Lily Allen wants to sign that artist to her record label on the spot. While it’s a rarer-than-a-shooting-star occurrence, that’s exactly what happened to singer-songwriter Tom Odell.
The blonde haired, blue eyed British artist was scooped up by Allen and her In The Name Of label after she caught Odell’s fourth solo show. Since then, the soulful Odell went on to win the BRITs Critics Choice Award and release his first album, A Long Way Down, last year.
While ANDPOP’s Simon Mohos would’ve enjoyed dissecting the melancholic lyrics of “Another Love” with Odell, the late summer weather begged to differ. Instead, Simon got Odell thinking about to his past to recount the days of terrible drunkeness, accidental thievery, and after school activities.
