Saturday, Main stage
Ivor Novello-winning songwriting sensation and master of the ivories, Tom is at the very top of his game. His career-defining third album is packed with grandstanding melodies and scintillating performances, it is, its auteur proudly declares, his bravest outing so far, and also his most honest and personal.
It features ten songs each in their own way destined for classic status, rivalling Tom’s own heroes Elton John and Billy Joel (who now count amongst Odell’s most vocal fans) for sheer imagination and quality. Leading the charge, the terrifically catchy, gospel-soaked ‘If You Wanna Love Somebody’ may just be his highlight so far.
This multi-talented singer/songwriter/pianist is such a master showman that his live shows are a sight and sound to behold.
