Tom Grennan who started out gigging in pubs in his hometown Bedford, is heading for a steady rise in 2017, made all the more clear after selling out his headline tour.
The 21-year-old singer songwriter who plays at Bush Hall , London on February 9 is slowly but surely building a legion of listeners.
This is partly thanks to his collaboration with drum and bass duo Chase & Status which gave Tom's voice a platform into public conscious.
Tom says: "We hooked up for it and it just happened naturally - it was a good experience for me and now we've become mates."
The track 'All Goes Wrong' which features Tom's raspy vocals seems to have had an affect on an audience who are now selling out his gigs.
Although he has only released a four-track EP 'Something in the Water' Tom has since sold out 11 of 12 dates on his headline tour.
On selling out dates in the likes of London, Liverpool and Birmingham Tom says: "I'm buzzing, it's amazing to do on a first tour."
This impressive feat is clearly a combination of his voice and the buzz that surrounded him entering into 2017.
BBC Radio 1's coveted Sound Of poll included Tom in the 2017 lineup alongside other hyped male vocalist Rag'n'Bone Man and big voices Ray BLK and RAYE.
It seems he's part of a new wave of British artists who boast their voice as the main selling point, disregarding all the other theatrics that come with selling music.
His voice has drawn comparisons to Jamie T, Paolo Nutini and Amy Winehouse and it's no surprise as it has hints of reggae, Northern soul and R&B with an ability to cross genres.
But music wasn't always Tom's focus as he says: "It randomly happened, I was drinking at a party and my mates got me on board, it all really started by chance I wasn't necessarily into music."
With a second EP due out on March 10 and plenty of festival slots coming up in the summer it looks like 2017 is going to be a pretty big year for Tom Grennan - who might be selling out bigger venues by this time next year.
Tom is playing a sold out show at Bush Hall on Thursday February 9 with Twickets the only place to get face value tickets.
Plus on April 20 he is returning for a headline show at Union Chapel and you can get tickets here .
