Brit Award winner takes to the Guildhall stage


By Grantham Reporter


Brit Award winner Tom Walker performed an intimate gig at Grantham’s Guildhall on Monday in front of 200 fans.

Lincs FM hosted the gig for a small contingent of its lucky listeners.

Singer-songwriter Tom became one of the biggest names in music after winning a 2019 Brit Award for Best British Breakthrough Act.

Tom performed his Brit nominated hit ‘Leave A Light On’ alongside others from his latest album ‘What A Time to be Alive’, which reached number one on the official albums chart within its first week of being released earlier this month.

Accompanied on stage by his pianist and occasionally complimenting his emotionally filled lyrics with guitar, listeners were treated to a vocally powerful set of ‘Angels’, ‘Blessings’ and latest single ‘You and I’ from the Scottish powerhouse.

Describing his beloved Gran, the singer sang ‘All That Matters’. “I wrote this song after she said something to me that will stay with me for the rest of my life and that was love is all that matters in the end, you can’t spend your money when you’re dead.”

Tom envisages the exclusive song will be on the deluxe edition of his album.

Talking about his Brit Award, Tom explained: “I haven’t actually got it back yet! I don’t know if my manager’s stole it and got it in his bathroom, I don’t know, I really don’t know. Once I get it back it’s going in the bathroom, one hundred percent! Then I don’t have to tell my guests about it, they’ll just see it and ask, ‘what’s that?’…oh, it’s just a Brit Award!”

Lincs FM’s programme manager Sam Heywood said: “What a fantastic night! Tom had a story for every song and had everyone in stitches with some of them! It’s the second Up Close gig we’ve done this year, and we’re already working on more!”
