New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Capitol Records)
Capitol Records emerging artist Graffiti6
has announced a new string of September
tour dates. The 7-date tour begins Sep. 17th in Albany, NY and includes an opening slot on the main stage of Austin City Limits on Sep. 18th before wrapping in New York City on Sep. 26th as the opening band for Oh Land
at the Bowery Ballroom (full schedule below).
will also release their 'Free' EP on Oct. 11th. The 'Free' EP is a seven-track set which includes both the radio and stripped down version of the title track along with stripped versions of “Lay Me Down,” “Annie You Save Me” and “Stone In My Heart.” The EP is rounded out with the band’s cover of Fleet Foxes
“Blue Ridge Mountains” and a brand new song “Foxes.” The band’s debut album Colours will be released in early 2012.
“Free,” an emotional, soulful song about breaking out of a relationship that has come to an end but hard to walk away from, is Graffiti6’s first U.S. radio single. It will impact Triple A radio in October. The video which was shot on the streets of downtown LA will also premiere next month. The band debuted a raw, stripped down clip for the song on influential music blog ArjanWrites.com last month in which lead singer Jamie Scott
performs “Free” solo and acoustic with one mic, one camera, in one take. You can see it here: https://youtu.be/VYs-ABc475A
is a collaboration between singer-songwriter Jamie Scott
and songwriter-producer TommyD, both London-born multi-instrumentalists who began making music together in 2009. They’ve spent the last couple of months back and forth between the U.S. and Europe

They played the Escape To New York Festival last month in Southampton, NY, played the Los Angeles Hammer Museum Summer Concert Series presented by KCRW and opened for buzz-band Fitz and the Tantrums in July in addition to a residency at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.
