[GRACE PERIOD] It doesn't take long for 22-year-old Chichester prodigies blessed with tousled blond locks and Jeff Buckley pipes to earn the keys to the United Kingdom, and a recent tour across the pond to promote debut EP Songs From Another Love found sold-out crowds swooning Tom Odell's every measured sigh. Signed to Lily Allen's label, Odell's songwriting betrays the limited experiences too often accompanying troubadours of prodigious talents and preternatural ambitions, but a healthy streak of boozy sass enlivening early performances suggests the boy desires something more than a sheltered climb to stardom midst likeminded peers. Though Taylor Swift famously descended upon the lad following his Critic's Choice victory at the Brits, they remain only friends and, for that, hallelujah.
