Tom Odell has just re­leased a crit­i­cally ac­claimed al­bum, Wrong Crowd, but all any­one ever asks him about is what he does be­fore he goes on­stage. “It’s the most com­mon ques­tion, by far,” said the Brit rue­fully when we pho­tographed him on a re­cent stop in Toronto (where he played an in­ti­mate set at Saks Fifth Av­enue in the CF Toronto Ea­ton Cen­tre). “I think they want me to say I lay down a rug and chant ‘white ele­phant’ six times and look for the North Star and do six claps to­ward it. But I re­ally just tend to pace the room a lot.” For our full in­ter­view with Odell, head to ELLECanada.com/ cul­ture—and don’t forget to check out page 72 for six more mu­si­cal acts you need to know about this au­tumn.
