Rhodes announces 'Run', the lead track from his forthcoming debut EP 'Raise Your Love'.
Recorded with Charlie Fink (Noah and the Whale) and James Kenosha, 'Raise Your Love' is set for release on 28th October via Hometown Records. The 4-track EP showcases Rhodes' trademark haunting vocals draped around a plaintive electric guitar backdrop, and is the follow up to his sublime demo track from earlier this year, 'Always'.
24 year old Rhodes wrapped up a busy summer of live dates - opening for the likes of Laura Marling, Rufus Wainwright, amongst others - with a special performance at Festival No. 6, backed by the festival's resident string quartet.
To mark the release of 'Raise Your Love', Rhodes will play his first ever headline show at The Waiting Rooms (London) on 24th October and will then support Nick Mulvey on his UK tour in November. Full listings as follows.
