Chichester-born musician Tom Odell caught the songwriting bug early - he's been penning original material since the age of 13. Now 22, Odell has built up a sizeable fanbase, making his TV debut in 2012 on Later... with Jools Holland.

As one of the three artists contending for the Brit Awards' Critics' Choice Category for 2013, it's clear that Odell is already making the right moves in front of the tastemakers that matter. Signed to Columbia, he's drawn attractive comparisons to the late Jeff Buckley; but his man-at-piano posture is also evocative of Chris Martin shorn of Coldplay's rousing roar.

Odell's material to date has veered from strikingly stripped-back troubadour tales to songs that are more work-in-progress than finished product. But given this is a man who signed a deal after just four gigs, a little room for growth is to be expected - as is a considerable blossoming of his popularity. - [BBC]

Tom Odell was on the "longlist" for the BBC's Sound of 2013 Poll (which was won by HAIM). He didn't make the shortlist, but he did just win the Critics' Choice Award from the Brit Awards. He's the first male artist to win this award, which has been previously given to Adele, Emeli Sandé and Jessie J. Writing songs since age 13, Odell released his debut EP, Another Love, last year and you can stream some of it below. Fans of anthemic piano pop (Coldplay, Keane, Ed Harcourt) will want to check this out.

You can check Odell out live too, as he's heading to North America for a few shows next week, including on in NYC at Pianos on January 24 with opener St Claire. Tickets are on sale now. All tour dates, plus a few videos, are listed below.

The 15-name nominee "longlist" is up for the BBC's "Sound of 2013" poll that includes The Weeknd, Savages, HAIM, King Krule, Palma Violets, AlunaGeorge and Angel Haze. Full list is below. If you're wondering how The Weeknd, who have sold out Terminal 5 here in NYC, can be up for something like this, here's some of the criteria:

They must not have had a UK top 20 single or album by 11 November 2012.

They can be from any musical genre and any country.

They must not already be famous i.e. generally known by the UK public, (e.g. member of a hit band going solo, or soap star). They must not have got through to the quarter, semi or final rounds of UK reality shows such as X Factor in the last 3 years (i.e. 2010 onwards).

They must not have featured in the BBC Sound of list previously (See an alphabetical list of previous nominees here)

"New" means new to the general public. They may have been around for a while if you believe they are ready to step up to the next level of quality & recognition.

The nomination/voting panel is made up of " newspaper and magazine editors and critics, producers and presenters from music radio and televison, website editors and bloggers" if you were wondering. Last year's winner was Michael Kiwanuka.

You can catch nominees HAIM at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday (12/15, sold out) and Palma Violets will be in NYC next month.
