Madness: Young Songwriter is Delighted by Famous Fan

Written by Chief Editor.

Tom Grennan has admitted it feels "pretty mad" to have Sir Elton as a fan.

The  singer can't quite get his head around the pop legend "appreciating" his music, but explained while it is a huge deal, he is trying to stay grounded.

Appearing on online music TV show Red Stripe Presents: This Feeling TV, he said: "It's pretty mad. I'm just a boy from Bedford who grew up in a normal life. So it's humbling and unusual. Especially Elton John.

 "My mum's a massive fan, I'm a massive fan. So when he is saying and appreciating what I'm doing, it's pretty mad. It's cool, though. I'm taking it in my stride, I'm like yes! I'm here! And I'm staying!"

The 23-year-old released his debut album Lighting Matches earlier this month.
