Rhodes releases his debut EP ‘Raise Your Love’ October 28th on Hometown Records.
6 months ago, 24 year old Rhodes, from Hitchin, picked up his guitar and began to sing first the time. As if by magic he unearthed his own startling and original voice.
The sublime demo track, 'Always' was playlisted on Amazing Radio for a month at the beginning of the summer and also picked up a handful of plays from Radio 1 and news of Rhodes’ music began to spread. As a result, Rhodes has had a busy summer of live shows supporting the likes of Rufus Wainwright, Laura Marling and Nick Mulvey across the UK.
With his career in ascendancy, now comes the debut EP ‘Raise Your Love’. Recorded with James Kenosha the 4 tracks showcase Rhodes' trademark haunting vocals draped around a plaintive electric guitar backdrop. Rhodes is currently in the studio with Charlie Fink (Noah and the Whale).
Rhodes plays Festival No. 6 this weekend (3.30pm at The Town Hall on Sunday 15th Sept) accompanied by a string quartet and following this he\'ll support Amber at The Bodega Social Club in Nottingham on 11th October, with more live dates to be announced soon.
