Cian Ducrot’s UK tour gets under way next week, and it will include a date in Norwich.

The Irish singer-songwriter, producer and instrumentalist has enjoyed chart and streaming success with his singles across Europe, and his debut album – Victory – was a No 1 smash.

The former Royal Academy of Music student, whose gamble to change lanes and switch to the world of pop has paid off handsomely, will be at the UEA on Wednesday, November 22, for a sold-out show.

Ducrot’s music has been shaped by his experiences growing up, which included being bullied for being “different” and being physically and sexually abused by his father – and drawing huge inspiration from his remarkable mum.

Referring to Victory, he said: “This album represents that victory, the victory of self-belief, the victory of everyone around me who I love and who loved me back, the story of my brother, of my mother, of my grandparents, of my friends and everyone who fought by our side every step of the way, the victory of love and the victory of never giving up.”
