The phones in the front office were ringing non-stop during Tom Odell’s Morning Becomes Eclectic debut earlier this week. It’s rare – and notable – when that happens. We’re here in a basement, but we can still feel when one of our artists is really connecting with the audience and this was one of those times.
The UK singer is quite young but a commanding performer who demands attention. The session sounds absolutely gorgeous and is definitely worth a listen.
“Another Love” has gotten the most airplay but I’ve fallen hard for “Can’t Pretend”. Check it out below.
Stream “Can’t Pretend – Live on KCRW”
And his cover of The Beatles “Oh Darling” was a breathtaking moment. Find the full session in the archives here.
