English singer-songwriter Tom Odell will perform at A8 Live in Nanshan District on Nov. 29.
Born in 1990, Odell was discovered by label head Lily Allen, who said, "His energy on stage reminded me of David Bowie." He released his debut extended play, "Songs From Another Love," in October 2012.
Odell's music has been used in numerous Burberry fashion runway shows. Odell was named the BRITs' Critics' Choice Award winner, previously won by artists such as Adele and Florence and the Machine.
Odell's debut album, "Long Way Down," was released in 2013 and reached No. 1 on the U.K. Official Chart. Odell's song "Can't Pretend" was used in "The 100" (TV series). "Can't Pretend" and "Long Way Down" were also featured on TV show "The Blacklist."
Odell's latest song, a cover of The Beatles' "Real Love," is the audio track to the 2014 John Lewis Christmas advert and has gained him great publicity. The advert features a penguin finding love and was released on the same day as the single. Within hours of the advert being aired for the first time, the track reached the top of the music recognition service, Shazam's trending list.
