There’s no blueprint for making it big in America. If only it were that, dare we say, elementary. But cracking the stateside market does require a specific mix: fierce talent, dashing style, unabashed confidence, and a customized strategy for world domination. Cue a new wave of British talent that’s descended upon the U.S., invading the airwaves with innovative sounds and disrupting playlists of even the most sophisticated DJs. It’s enough to make you want to turn the volume up—all the way up.Meet Tom Odell and Rudimental. We quizzed the gifted newcomers about the fast lane to success, their respective takeover strategies and why Brits are always so irresistible. TOM ODELL: With his recently released debut album, Long Way Down, piano-playing rocker Tom Odell proves that he’s definitely a talent to watch. The 23-year-old won’t be in one place for very long—he’s speeding toward superstardom backed by soulful songwriting skills and a one-of-a-kind voice. We got a gander at the native of Chichester, England, posing next to a stark-white JAGUAR F-TYPE Coupe and one thing was perfectly clear—he’s ready.

Do you remember a specific moment when you knew that you’d arrived? One of the coolest things that’s ever happened to me is when I played in L.A. at the El Rey Theatre. I had just gotten to know Elton John and he was in L.A. at the time. When I arrived at the venue, he had left two bottles of champagne in the dressing room with a note that said, “Be brilliant. Love, Elton.” That’s the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me. Let’s pretend that you get the JAGUAR F-TYPE Coupe to drive anywhere in the U.S. Where do you go first? I’d drive to Joshua Tree.... So many people I’ve met say that I need to go there because it’s a spiritual ground of creativity. RUDIMENTAL: Underground music produced in London’s shadowy byways typically lives where it was born—underground. Rudimental, the electronic music quartet composed of East London songwriters/producers Piers Agget, Kesi Dryden, Amir Amor, and DJ Locksmith, is causing a stir in the states following breakout performances at California music fests Outside Lands and Coachella. The bandmates and real-life mates dished on their road to stateside stardom during breaks from posing alongside JAGUAR’s sleek new F-TYPE Coupe.
What about your musical style has allowed you to disrupt the American music scene? DJ Locksmith: It’s new, fresh, exciting, and very British. But at the same time, it’s our own unique sound. It’s not that clean; it’s got that raw, soulful sound with electronic bass. That’s what everyone is feeding into. And the energy when you see us live is just the best. What’s the biggest difference between your band and American bands? Kesi: There aren’t a lot of bands like ours. We’re a mix of electronic and live music. Not many bands I’ve seen can take it live like we do. With nine of us, including our live band, onstage at the same time going crazy, it’s a full-on experience—a big show!
