We are delighted to be bringing singer/songwriter Tom Odell to BBC Radio 2 in his first role as presenter.
Around The Piano with Tom Odell, a new Wisebuddah four-part series to be broadcast later in the year, sees Odell celebrate the role of the piano in shaping pop music over the last 60 years. In the series, he takes the audience on a journey through the world’s most iconic piano-driven tracks – from Jerry Lee Lewis to Kanye West and Nina Simone to Harry Styles.
Rich with music and filled with contributions from the artists themselves, the series will pivot around interviews, conducted at a piano, with star names including Billy Joel, Regina Spektor, Hugh Laurie, Guy Chambers, Dan Wilson, Matt Bellamy and Richard Curtis.
Adam Uytman, Head of Content, says: “Tom Odell’s emotional, piano-led songs have put him centre stage as one of the most exciting artists working with this amazing instrument. Around The Piano with Tom Odell will be a rich, personal narrative series fronted by one of the UK’s leading young artists. We are delighted to be bringing him to BBC Radio 2 in a presenting capacity.”
