Currently in the midst of a completely sold out UK tour including London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace, 2021 has been a huge year for the London based singer-songwriter.
Grennan’s critically acclaimed #1 UK album Evering Road has surpassed 250M streams globally and he’s currently one of the top 200 most streamed artists in the world. He’s achieved 3 UK chart topping singles in 2021 alone, including his international bona-fide hit ‘Little Bit of Love’, ‘By Your Side’ and the Number One Trending Song ‘Let’s Go Home Together’ with Ella Henderson.
He made his US TV debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden, swapped stories with the legendary Tom Jones for LADbible, earlier this month starred in Soccer Aid for UNICEF, the world’s biggest charity football match, and is set to make his Australian TV debut on the AFL Footy Show’s Grand Final special!
Growing up in Bedford, England, Grennan initially pursued a football career before shifting his focus to his other love, music.
After several years cutting his teeth playing solo acoustic shows in London pubs he signed a deal with Insanity Records. But the next step, a collaboration with Chase & Status ‘When It All Goes Wrong’, would be a defining moment, putting him firmly on “ones to watch” lists.
Grennan followed this up with a trio of EPs – Release the Brakes, Something in the Water and Found What I’ve Been Looking For – which introduced audiences to his gritty-voiced mix of soulful pop and indie folk.
In 2018 he released his debut album, Lighting Matches, which hit #5 on the U.K. Albums Chart. Produced by Grammy award winners Dan Grech-Marguerat (Liam Gallagher, Radiohead, Halsey, Lana Del Rey, The Kooks) and Fraser T. Smith (Adele, Sam Smith), Lighting Matches produced the snappy, string-laden single ‘Sober’ and its follow up ‘Barbed Wire’.
The stripped-down acoustic single ‘City of Stars’ appeared in 2019, followed the next year by the more elaborate pop-driven cuts ‘This Is the Place’ and ‘Oh Please’.
Grennan dropped the tracks tracks ‘Amen’ and ‘Something Better’ in 2020 signalling a change of direction for his sophomore release. Evering Road, arrived in early 2021, encompassing the spirit of soul and gospel.
