Saint Raymond: 'Touring With Ed Sheeran Was A Learning Curve'
The Brand New For 2015 hopeful talks following in the footsteps of the 'Thinking Out Loud' megastar...
Speaking to MTV UK about the ca-razy opportunity, the I Want You singer and Brand New For 2015 beamed: "Being on tour with Ed Sheeran has just been an amazing experience for me.
"I think it's been a big learning curve as well getting to do some of the craziest shows, you know like the four nights at the O2."
He added: "Ed has the ability to captivate an audience with just him and a guitar so just learning from him and chatting to him about how to take it forward really, so yeah it's been amazing."
Like Ed, Callum is not just another man-and-a-guitar...
"Even though it's me as a solo artist, I think it's a bigger sound than me and just the guitar. That is shown in the live show that it's a lot more than a little sound and I try to make it as big as possible live and replicate that on the record. So yeah I think it feels not as boxed-in as 'singer-songwriter' say for example 'cause I think it's very easy to categorise it as that."
Saint Raymond will be playing at our Brand New gig later this month alongside Clean Bandit and Years & Years. Look out for competitions on Twitter in the coming weeks to see how you can nab tickets.
