British blues troubadour Connor Selby has announced a UK headline tour commencing this October.
“After spending the last year opening up with many incredible artists like Joanne Shaw Taylor, Beth Hart, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Robert Cray I am thrilled to be embarking on my biggest headline tour of the UK to date,” said the singer/guitarist. “Can’t wait to see you all out on the road!”
Selby is one of the fastest-rising stars in the UK blues scene. He was the UK Blues Awards’ Young Artist of the Year three times running (2020, 2021, 2022) and turned heads when he opened for The Who at Wembley Stadium in 2019.
Connor Selby (Deluxe Edition) was released in March via Provogue, and with it, new songs, ‘I Shouldn’t Care’, ‘Love Letter To The Blues’, ’The Deep End’, and the Ray Charles cover of ‘My Baby Don’t Dig Me’ – He has picked up the support of Classic Rock magazine, graced the cover of Blues In Britain, picked up a raft of critical praise for the album and been spun on numerous radio stations including the BBC Radio 2 Blues Show.
Selby will be continuing to tour through the year, playing shows at the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival and he will be supporting Graham Parker & The Goldtops on his September-October UK tour (For more information at RAMzine on these and other dates click here).
Relatable in its honesty and openness, Selby’s music draws from anxiety and vulnerability but delivers it with a world-worn elegance. Connor Selby (Deluxe Edition) can be purchased by clicking here.
