Saint Raymond, AKA 18-year-old Nottingham-born Callum Burrows, confirmed today details of his biggest UK tour to date, covering 10 dates across the country and kicking off in Bristol on 19th March 2014.
Saint Raymond is quickly becoming one of the hottest tips for 2014, after his new single ‘Young Blood’ was Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record in the World’ (Radio 1), and he secured the sole support slot for Haim’s sold-out UK and European tour.
2014 will kick off with the release of his ‘Young Blood’ EP which is out digitally and on 7” vinyl on January 5th through National Anthem (the label responsible for launching Haim, Chvrches and The Orwells to name a few).
Callum commented: I can’t wait to get back out on a headline tour in the Spring and have a greater selection of material to play. My second EP, Young Blood will be out by then so it will be great to be able to showcase the songs to a live audience.
2013 has been one rollercoaster year for Saint Raymond. His self-penned, independently released debut ‘Escapade EP’ shot up the iTunes album chart upon release in May with lead track ‘Fall At Your Feet’ promoted as iTunes Single of the Week.
Soon after Saint Raymond inked a deal with Asylum Records (Rudimental, Charli XCX, Ed Sheeran) and went on a busy festival run taking in Dot To Dot, Goldcoast, Barn On The Farm, Splendour, Secret Garden Party, Y Not Festival and Reading and Leeds performing on the BBC Introducing Stage. In October he completed his first UK headline tour with his band, including an outstanding sold-out show at London’s Barfly and further sold-out shows in Bristol, Manchester and Nottingham.
Saint Raymond is a name on the lips of many new music champions including Zane Loweand Dean Jackson within BBC Radio who have given multiple plays for two of his EP tracks ‘Fall At Your Feet’ and ‘Letting Go’. The latter was added to the BBC Introducing playlist in August, and further support has come from Absolute Radio and XFM.
He is currently in the studio working on his debut album out next year
