It has been announced today he will bring with him some of the UK’s finest emerging talent with him to support.

The 22-year-old singer songwriter, whose double platinum-selling single Someone You Loved has been a hit around the globe, will be joined for the July date by Ward Thomas, Saint Raymond and Charlotte and by Seafret, Lewis Watson and Charlotte again when he takes to the stage in August.

24-year old twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy make up the British country-cop duo Ward Thomas.

They made history when their second album Cartwheels became the first country record by a British act ever to top the UK album chart.

Fresh from their own UK headline tour, and off the back of their European dates with Jack Savoretti, Ward Thomas have just released the video for the beautiful new single One More Goodbye which is taken from their third hit album Restless Minds.

Bridlington's very own Seafret – who are Jack Sedman and Harry Draper – have won legions of fans and critical acclaim since the release of their 2016 debut album Tell Me It’s Real.

The Yorkshire duo released their fourth EP last year which featured the singles Monsters and Can’t Look Away and are currently working on their second album.

Oxford-based singer-songwriter Lewis Watson has toured the world and seen his songs streamed more than 200 million times.

His new single Meant For Me is a taster of what to expect from his forthcoming third album on which he has collaborated with producer Richard Wilkinson (Honne, Rhys Lewis, and Kaiser Chiefs).

Saint Raymond

Saint Raymond – singer-songwriter Callum Burrows – returned late last year with single Echoes.

Having previously been the opening act for Ed Sheeran, Saint Raymond boasts melodic anthems that pack a punch from infectious choruses, and lyrics that address the poignancy and euphoria of life.

Charlotte

Hull-born soul singer and songwriter Charlotte is playing both the July and August dates.

This talented 21-year-old’s debut EP Nowhere To Hide saw her work with world renowned producers Toby Gad, and The Orphanage (Kehlani, Alessia Cara and Demi Lovato).

Mesmerising songs such as Nervous, Somebody To Hold, I Tell Lies and Just Me showcase a unique talent that is already being tipped as one of the most exciting new artists of the year.
