07 FEBRUARY 2020 (TORONTO, ON) – Singer/songwriter Billy Raffoul releases new song “Without Falling In Love” today on Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.

Raffoul also announces April 3rd as the release date for his new EP A Few More Hours at YYZ (Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada). Made with producers like Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, The 1975, Barns Courtney), the new EP further redefines the limits of the classic singer/songwriter sensibility, bringing Raffoul’s enchanting sincerity and warm introspection to his most sonically ambitious body of work yet. “Without Falling In Love” follows the release last month of the harmony-laced piano ballad “It’s a Beautiful Life,” which was featured in the mid-season premiere of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. Both songs will be featured on A Few More Hours at YYZ.

Raffoul is gearing up to hit the road for a string of North American headline dates. A Few More Hours At… 2020 North American Tour will kick off February 28, 2020 in Boston, MA at Café 939, and includes two Canadian dates in Toronto and Vancouver (see below).

Growing up in the small farming town of Leamington, Ontario, Raffoul first discovered his gift for songwriting at age ten, thanks in no small part to the influence of his father—a musician who’s opened for everyone from Joe Cocker to Bon Jovi. After landing his first paying gig—playing to long-haul drivers at a local truck stop—Raffoul began playing at nearby bars and clubs at age 16, often driving into Detroit for shows. He eventually connected with a manager and moved down to Nashville to push forward with his music career. Soon after scoring a deal with Interscope Records, Raffoul released the critically hailed song “Driver” and followed that with his debut EP 1975 in June 2018 which featured the fan favorite “Acoustic.” Arriving in spring 2019, his sophomore EP Running Wild found him joining forces with leading producers like Greg Kurstin (a seven-time Grammy Award-winner who’s worked with Paul McCartney, Beck, and Adele), as well as collaborating with such boundary-breaking artists as singer/songwriter Julia Michaels. Over the past few years, Raffoul has opened for heavyweights like Kings of Leon, X Ambassadors, and NEEDTOBREATHE, captivating crowds with his understated yet intensely passionate stage presence. He also recently finished his first-ever headlining tour of Europe. Shortly after that sold-run European run, Raffoul embarked on a co-headline tour with Wrabel, during which he took the stage with just his guitar and drum pedals.
