ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No. 140 Tom Walker

While acts like Ed Sheeran and Jack Garrett have looked to reinvent the singer-songwriter pretence over the last few years, it is still nice to hear an artist that is capable of bringing such rich beauty to a song with a minimal amount of production.

Armed with little more than a silky-smooth voice and laid-back playing style, Tom Walker has already begun his plans for world domination with his hotly-anticiapted new EP 'Blessings'. With the recent arrival of the release's title-track and its predecessor 'Just You & I', which has already amassed 12million plays, things are already rising fast for this Scottish-born, Manchester-bred newcomer.

With support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Clash Magazine, Beats 1, and BBC 1Xtra, not to mention a performance on US TV's Today Show, as well as sold out shows in LA and New York, Tom's next EP 'Blessings' is sure to kick off a riot when it lands on the 12th May via Relentless Records.

Tom Walker will be touring the UK again throughout May, and you can check out the new single 'Blessings' in the player below.
