3 Minutes With: Tom Grennan

At FLANNELS, we’re always keen to platform and make space for fresh musical talent and the voices that move us. As a part of the Tommy Hilfiger Moving Forward Together campaign, our latest find, singer-songwriter Tom Grennan, joins us for a quick chat following the release of his chart-topping number one album, Evering Road.





Recognised for his bold but timeless aesthetic and cheeky, happy-go-lucky approach, 26-year-old Grennan rocks his top picks from the latest spring/summer drop of cherished heritage brand, Tommy Hilfiger, in a lightweight black parka, layered over one of their iconic polos.

 

This special spring collection aims to be more sustainable in both production methods and fabric choices, using EcoVero viscose and organic cotton, to align with Tommy Hilfiger’s sustainability mission.

 

Grennan joins powerful forces such as Indya Moore, the Compton Cowboys and Jameela Jamil in the campaign, which strives to inspire global communities to unite to build a better future. His personal venture involves working alongside mental health charities, having overcome some serious setbacks of his own, as well as encouraging small acts of kindness on a local scale, such as getting your neighbour’s groceries during lockdown.

Originally born in Bedford, the South Midlands native ventured to London for university to try his hand at music after deciding a promising career in professional football just wasn’t the right path to take.

 

Catching the eyes and ears of the industry after appearing on the Chase and Status hit All Goes Wrong, he’s been backed by Annie Mac, Radio 1 Live Lounge, Vevo Studios and Jools Holland. It’s safe to say Tom Grennan has firmly secured his spot in the world of pop.
