After finishing one sold-out tour this year rising star Tom Odell has announced he is hitting the road again in the autumn and will be heading for Leeds.

The young singer-songwriter is fast making a name for himself with his on stage charm and ability to write a heartfelt melody.

His music also has a poignant feel and atmospherics and he has been favourably compared to the likes of Jeff Buckley and early Bowie.

Odell’s debut tour saw him winning new friends all over the country and he is stepping out again before the year is out with a 15-date tour that includes a gig at the O2 Academy Leeds on Tuesday, October 15. Tickets are available now from www.ticketweb.co.uk

Odell released his debut album, Long Way Down, in April through ITNO/Columbia Records. It includes chart hit debut single Hold Me.
