Artist Spotlight: Tom Walker

Scottish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tom Walker first rose to fame after the release of his single, ‘Leave a Light On’ in 2017. Since then, he’s taken home a BRIT award for British Breakthrough Act, has played in front of the Royal Family and more recently announced a run of special intimate live performances in March 2023.

Take a read on as we feature Tom Walker in this month’s instalment of Artist Spotlight and dive into his career and back catalogue a little more.


Having grown up around music and taught himself to play drums, guitar, piano and bass, Tom Walker released his first song, ‘Sun Goes Down’ in 2016 to great praise and radio airplay, the track featuring Kojey Radical. His official debut single, ‘Fly Away With Me’ followed later that same year.

Tom’s first EP, ‘Blessings’ dropped a year later in 2017. Showing his acoustic, stripped back side and unique sound, the EP contributed to cementing the Scot as a serious rising star and one to watch. The offering quickly opened Tom’s door to playing sell out shows in the UK and US.

Leave a Light On

October 2017 saw Tom Walker drop arguably his most popular single, ‘Leave a Light On.’ The song received bags of airplay time, featured on a TV advert and made an appearance on numerous UK and international charts. The track embodies everything you’d expect from a Tom Walker song but with even more emotion and power, and shows off Tom’s impressive vocal ability. It was a song that got stuck in many people’s minds for the right reasons.

Leave a Light On’ paved way for the release of Tom Walker’s debut studio album, ‘What a Time to Be Alive’ in 2019. Following which he won the “Best Breakthrough Act” at The BRIT Awards that year and earned a “Best British Single” nomination for ‘Leave a Light On.’ Clash touted the album as “a perfect representation of him – cheerful, genuine, heartfelt and talented…”, with a perfect blend of tracks and tempos it certainly made an impact on the industry.

The Best Is Yet To Come

Pre-pandemic, in 2019, Tom confirmed that he was working on new material and since then has released multiple singles like 'Serotonin' with his latest, ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’, dropped in October this year.
