Review: Saint Raymond
You may not know Saint Raymond yet, but I am almost certain that this time next year, you will love him as much as I now do.

Nottingham is riding high on a wave of a musical explosion, producing a line of cool, young bands and singers, such as Jake Bugg, Dog is Dead and now Saint Raymond – real name Callum Burrows, indie punk singer songwriter with a flair for mixing up tempo guitar rhythms with meaningful lyrics to produce beautiful indie pop anthems.
Saint Raymond has been touring pretty much non stop for the last couple of years, with his first head line tour coming last year, after the release of his EP Young Blood, quickly followed by supporting Haim on their latest European tour and now is just about to head off on another UK tour, one that I will be going to see, when he comes to Birmingham on the 27th of March.
In my opinion Saint Raymond is the perfect person to listen to in the summer months, with his mixture of up beat electric guitar and vocals that just scream cool, you should check out his songs now, that way you can sing along at any of the many music festivals that I’m sure he will be performing this year.
