Ragsy is releasing his second single, ‘My Love (Bring out the Guards)’ in early MARCH 2016.
My Love (Bring out the Guards)’ is the second single to be taken from Ragsy’s popular debut album ‘Ouch!!!’, and features the beautiful haunting voice of Welsh based singer-songwriter Caroline Harrison. With Ragsy’s raw, classic rock-inspired vocals the two artists combine to tell a fragile tale of love, life, loss and wanting.
The classic red telephone box features heavily in the artwork and video to this single. This is based around a story told by Ragsy’s parents of a time early on in their courtship, a time when there were no house phones and certainly no mobile phones. Distance never became an issue and was overcome as the couple would arrange to call each other at certain times of the day at the red telephone box situated at the end of the street. Sometimes even a passing neighbour would answer the phone and dash to Ragsy’s mothers family home to tell her that Frank was on the other end of the line. A simple tale of love conquering all. Which is in keeping with the theme of the song.
Ragsy’s debut album ‘Ouch!!!’, available now, was crafted over a two year period, “a time of ups, downs, ins, outs and roundabouts” creating a soulful blend of powerful vocals, beautiful acoustic melodies and heart-on-your-sleeve songwriting.
Following his time on BBC’s The Voice in 2013, under the mentorship of Sir Tom Jones, Ragsy has performed to numerous crowds at UK festivals including, Wakestock, Brecon Fringe, How The Light Gets In, Ponty’s Big Weekend and Glastonbury to name a few. Ragsy has received radio support from Lynn Bowles, Mike Read, Jamie Owen, Wynne Evans and Eleri Sion, and recently he was BBC Radio Wales Artist of The Week.
Ragsy’s impassioned performance of Coldplay’s ‘The Scientist’ on BBC’s The Voice has received over 2 million views on YouTube.
