Billy Raffoul Confirms North American Tour Dates with Parachute

Billy Raffoul Confirms North American Tour Dates with Parachute

Emerging singer/songwriter Billy Raffoul confirms North American tour dates this spring supporting Parachute. The extensive run of dates brings Raffoul to New York's Gramercy Theatre, Nashville's Cannery Ballroom, D.C.'s 9:30 Club, Boston's Royale as well as two dates at Los Angeles' Troubadour. Raffoul has spent the past few years on the road sharing the stage with Kings of Leon, ZZ Ward, NEEDTOBREATHE, Mondo Cozmo, Judah & The Lion and more. Ticket's on-sale begins on Friday, January 18 and can be purchased at billyraffoul.com. See below for complete tour dates.

Raffoul's debut EP 1975, which was released last year via Interscope Records, continues to receive critical praise. The Observer proclaims, "Falling somewhere in-between Hozier and James Bay is Billy Raffoul. The 22-year-old knows how to balance poetry with an anthemic, hard rock edge. We'll definitely be seeing more of this Nashville by Canada troubadour," while Ones To Watch adds, "Never hiding behind overly-clever production techniques or superfluous furnishings, lyrically or sonically, 1975 paints a brutally honest portrait of Raffoul as a genuine artist."

Raffoul grew up in a creative family in the small farming town of Leamington, Ontario. His mother is an artist, writer and teacher and his father Jody Raffoul is a solo artist and hometown hero who has opened for everyone from Joe Cocker to Bon Jovi. Raffoul's earliest musical influences come from his dad. "The Beatles were like Jesus in our house," he recalls, adding that he also listened to soul singers like Otis Redding and Sam Cooke. On his tenth birthday, Billy received a British Invasion-inspired guitar with a Union Jack on its front from Jody and started teaching himself to play. By 16, he had bought his first real guitar, a 1968 Gibson Les Paul Black Beauty.
