Biography

Grennan comes from an Irish background. At the age of 18, he was mugged by a group of girls on the street and was left with four metal plates and screws in his jaw that "still hurt when winter comes". He trained to become a professional footballer, playing for Luton Town for a while, also trying for Northampton Town and Aston Villa; he was later released. Grennan is a lifelong supporter of Manchester United. He also worked briefly at Costa Coffee. He told Music Week: "I was close to playing over in the States but something was telling me not to and obviously it was the music".

His musical beginnings are obscure, but he says he was at a house party where he sang "Seaside" from The Kooks. He didn't remember it, but his friends were impressed and pushed him into performing more. He studied acting at St. Mary's University in Twickenham. Aged 18, he started doing gigs around London with his acoustic guitar, mainly in small pub appearances for almost three years. After a performance at the Finsbury pub, a representative of Insanity Records heard him play and offered a contract. His debut EP, Something in the Water was produced by Charlie Hugall. He had his big break when he was featured in the Chase & Status 2016 single "All Goes Wrong" that was picked as "Hottest Record" on Annie Mac's Radio 1 show. After that, he was invited for an appearance on the station's Live Lounge, and a follow up appearance on BBC Two's television programme Later... with Jools Holland. The song appeared on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 65. It also made some European charts.[citation needed]

In 2017, he was shortlisted for the MTV Brand New Award, singing at MTV Showcase at London's Electric Ballroom on 2 February 2017. The same year, he had a cameo appearance in Charli XCX's music video for her song "Boys", alongside many well-known artists and duetted with grime MC Bugzy Malone on "Memory Lane". Grennan performed in Trafalgar Square during the F1 Live in London show in support of Formula One drivers. He started an all UK tour in March 2018 in support of his debut album Lighting Matches, released in July 2018. His song "Found What I've Been Looking For" appears on the FIFA 18 soundtrack and is also used by Sky Sports as the theme song for Super Sunday and RBI19 Baseball.[citation needed]

In 2021, he had his first UK top 10 hit with "Little Bit of Love", which peaked at number 7. It was awarded a Silver certification by the BPI, also charting around Europe. He subsequently achieved another top 10 hit with "Let's Go Home Together", a collaboration with Ella Henderson.
