One-man band busking sensation Cam Cole will bring his first ever UK tour to Manchester’s Gullivers.

The 16-date run will also include a Liverpool gig at Jimmy’s.

During the tour, Cam Cole will perform his heavy blues and rock-and-roll tracks from his two albums including his new full length release Crooked Hill.

The one-man band performs the drums, guitar and sings at the same time.  His tracks are mostly recorded live in one-take without edits to capture the spirit of his street busking performances.

The multi-instrumentalist’s rise began in 2019 after his live busking performances around London went viral.  Shortly afterwards he dropped his debut album I See.  Whilst lockdown scuppered plans for international tours, Cam Cole connected with his fanbase through a video series Sounds From The Van.  The series streamed directly from his van rehearsal room before the release of a new live album, recorded on the streets of Camden.

Crooked Hill is Com Cole’s latest release, a collection of raw and heavy blues-rock songs.  As he explains, “My goal with all this is taking one-man bands from being this sort of joke to a legitimate thing.  You can sound massive on your own and you really can get your point across without any filter.  A lot of my music is about realising that we create the demons we face ourselves; we create those illusions and that is why we can beat them.  If those songs change the day of people for the better just a little, then it was all worth it.  Music has to be a form of magic, there is nothing else that can do that.
