SAUL WIL­LI­AMS TOURS UK JUNE-JULY

THE ONLY CHANCE TO SEE THE
CEL­EB­RATED MUSI­CIAN IN THE UK THIS YEAR IN:

LON­DON | MANCHESTER | BRIGHTON | BRIS­TOL | BIRM­ING­HAM  NOT­TING­HAM | OXFORD | LEEDS | NEW­CASTLE | GLAS­GOW & MORE

After recently releas­ing new album Mar­tyr­LoserKing to crit­ic­al acclaim, and selling out four pre­vi­ous UK dates earli­er this year, Amer­ic­an rap­per & sing­er-song­writer, Saul Wil­li­ams, embarks on a new UK tour this Sum­mer.

Known for his blend of poetry and altern­at­ive hip-hop, Saul Wil­li­ams sights Bey­on­cé, Fre­do Santana, and Haitian field record­ings as music­al inspir­a­tions for his self-pro­duced 6th album, strain­ing trap hi-hats and mbira strokes togeth­er for a nuanced, entirely ori­gin­al sound.

Writ­ten and recor­ded between Seneg­al, Reunion Island, Par­is, Haiti, and New Orleans and New York, and released via The Fader Records, Mar­tyr­LoserKing is a mul­ti­me­dia pro­ject that engages the digit­al dia­logue between the 1st and 3rd Worlds, and the glob­al street sounds that yoke the two. His new single’Think Like They Book Say’ has just been added to BBC Radio 6’s A-list.

Wil­li­ams has been break­ing ground since his debut album, Amethyst Rock Star, was released in 2001 and exec­ut­ive pro­duced by Rick Rubin. After gain­ing glob­al fame for his poetry and writ­ings at the turn of the cen­tury, Wil­li­ams has per­formed in over 30 coun­tries and read in over 300 uni­ver­sit­ies, with invit­a­tions that have spanned from the White House, the Sydney Opera House, Lin­coln Center, The Louvre, The Getty Center, Queen Eliza­beth Hall, to count­less, vil­lages, town­ships, com­munity centres, and pris­ons across the world.

With key sup­port across the coun­try for up & com­ing UK acts includ­ing Dizraeli // Oddis­see & Good Compny // Joe Driscoll and CROOX, this show offers a unique oppor­tun­ity to see a com­pel­ling artist at his peak.
