“Nobody Here (But Us)” follows the April release of Raffoul’s EP A Few More Hours at YYZ which further redefined the limits of his classic singer/songwriter sensibility, bringing Raffoul’s enchanting sincerity and warm introspection to his most sonically ambitious body of work yet.
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, 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. Raffoul found himself back in Leamington after postponing the west coast run of his A Few More Hours At… 2020 North American Tour. Raffoul immediately took to Instagram Live for intimate performances from his father’s home in where Raffoul was socially isolating and launched the Still Social Distancing Tour 2020 that featured special guest artists including Alec Chambers, Zac Barnett, Caitlyn Smyth, Wrabel, John Paul White and more.
