Unable to land a place in a music college, Tom Odell began performing in Brighton, gaining experience as a live musician and playing at open-mic events. He worked as a barman and also regularly visited London to play at some of its venues, eventually moving to the city to play in the group, Tom and the Tides.

In 2013, he was one of the fifteen artists for the BBC Sound of 2013 poll, with BBC also using his song, Another Love, in one of their commercials. He covered a Taylor Swift song for the BBC Radio 1 show, Live Lounge, and praised Taylor Swift's music as having incredible lyrics, stating that he would love to work with her. Taylor Swift responded by stating that she was a super fan of Tom Odell.
He went on to win the BRITs Critics Choice Award, an award that has been won by the likes of Florence and The Machine and Adele. He is set to release his debut in 2013 and is also slated to perform at the famous Hyde Park in London, supporting The Rolling Stones.

He is also fond of the music of Cat Power, Arcade Fire, Beach House, James Blake, Ben Folds and Radiohead.
His song, Another Love, ranked first on the Ultratop 50 Belgium charts, sixth on the MegaCharts in the Netherlands as well as charting on the UK Singles Chart, Germany Media Control Charts and Switzerland's Swiss Music Charts. The proud owner of an MTV Award nomination for the Brand New For 2013, the BBC Sound of 2013 nomination and BRIT Awards Critics' Choice Awards, he deserves to be seen live.
