Tom Odell’s Taylor cover

Rising UK singer songwriter Tom Odell visited the BBC Radio studios recently to perform some tunes. In the midst of all that, he performed a cover of Taylor Swift’s ubiquitous single I Knew You Were Trouble, but he made it all his own. The soulful, alluring, emotive, gritty cover is a far cry from the original pop song. It’s no surprise, as Odell has already been impressing countless people (including me) with his skills. I’m catching the guy live tonight in an intimate venue (Popscene in San Francisco at the Rickshaw Stop), and I can’t feel luckier. I’ve been waiting for this show since late last year when I heard he was coming by. On top of that, I get to see In The Valley Below and Sweden’s Urban Cone (also excellent) all in the same night. If you’re in town, you should really stop by. It’ll be worth your time and few buckaroos. Anyway, without further ado, the amazing Swift cover below and Odell’s fantastic Another Love again. This guy has got huge things ahead of him.
