Badly Drawn Boy announces his March tour dates
Mancunian melody maestro promises to deliver more of his musical gems to
audiences and enthusiasts alike across the USA for March 2007.


Northern songsmith Damon Gough also commonly known as Badly Drawn Boy has
continuously crafted modern classics one after the other since his critically acclaimed
debut in 2000 “The Hour of the Bewilderbeast”. Having been compared to fellow
songwriters such as Lennon, Bacharach and even Springsteen as of late; particularly
with his most recent fifth studio album “Born in the UK”, reaffirming Gough’s musical
ability and spectrum as a true testament to his staying power as talent past, present
and future.


“Wistful, vulnerable, not averse to facing the dark side, "Born in the UK" is
welcome because it restores some focus and direction to the one thing
Gough has never lacked: heart.”

- Los Angeles Times

Damon's notoriously encapsulating live shows are an enjoyable and equally inspiring
rollercoaster entailing peaks of blissful intimacy contrasted with loud and proud rock
and roll music; equipped to get anyone up on their feet. His interaction with the
audience and dry English wit is equally as entertaining, spontaneous and admirable
as his musical creations.

This is Gough's most succinct album to date--fluid, eloquent and timeless.”
- Paste Magazine

Whether you are more of a “Bewilderbeast...” fan or a “Born...” fan – to catch him
live early 2007 is an absolute must!
Born in the U.K. is a disarming, wistful work that observes Gough’s idealism
with piano-driven balladry.”
