Following the release of his EP 'Young Blood', Saint Raymond, aka Nottingham-born Callum Burrows, has announced details of a headline show at London's Scala, which will take place on May 14 (general sale commences on Feb 21. Furthermore, he'll be heading out on his biggest UK headline tour to date throughout March, which will include a sold-out show at London's Borderline (full dates below).
Saint Raymond is quickly cementing himself as a familiar name in the 2014 music scene. Last month, he released his EP 'Young Blood', which peaked at #3 on the iTunes album chart. The title track picked-up a 'Hottest Record in the World' from Zane Lowe at Radio 1 and further support came from the likes of Radio 1's Dean Jackson, Absolute and XFM. In November, Saint Raymond supported HAIM on their European tour and most recently, he performed at KOKO's Club NME, where he received a glowing 4* review from The Times.
Currently in the studio recording his debut album (set to release later this year), which promises to propel his indie-pop-rock to the masses, it is safe say that 2014 is going to a huge year for Saint Raymond. In 2013, he released his self-penned, independently released debut EP 'Escapade', leading to a 'Single of the Week' on iTunes with his track'Fall At Your Feet', while other EP track 'Letting Go' was added to Radio 1's BBC Introducing playlist. Soon signed to Asylum Records (Rudimental, Charli XCX, Ed Sheeran), he took to the stages of various UK festivals, including Dot to Dot, Secret Garden Party, Reading and Leeds and more.
