Tom Walker makes the BBC Radio 1 BRITS List by Simon King

Tom Walker have been named as one of the newest additions to BBC Radio 1’s BRIT List along side J Hus and Stefflon Don. They follow on from previous acts including Anne-Marie, Declan McKenna, JP Cooper, Sampha, Stormzy and The Amazons.

The Brit List guarantees each selected artist three consecutive Radio 1 playlist appearances, vaulting them to the A-list if they haven’t previously appeared there. In addition, Radio 1 also pledged to assist each artist in securing other editorial and live opportunities.

Tom Walker said: "It’s such a monumental honour to be added to the Radio 1 Brit List, I can’t believe it!  Receiving this kind of acknowledgement from the radio station I grew up listening to is unreal. Huge love to all the DJs and BBC Introducing for the support so far.”
