Rag'n'Bone Man thought about quitting music "loads of times"

Singer-songwriter Rag'n'Bone Man has revealed that he considered quitting music "loads of times" before he found success. 

During an interview with Britain's Daily Star newspaper, he was asked if there were ever times where he felt like giving up and confessed it was a thought that crossed his mind frequently:

"Loads of times. I worked as a carer for children with Asperger's Syndrome and doing 50-hour weeks while trying to fit in gigs at weekends was hard. But being a carer taught me a lot about compassion."

Referring to his rise to fame, he added: "I'm a bit overwhelmed, if slightly uncomfortable. I thought this was something that was really far out of reach. I sat on the sofa talking to my pals about doing certain things musically and the BRIT Awards wasn't even in the realms of possibility."

Along with winning the BRIT Awards Critics' Choice prize, he also took home the Best British Breakthrough Act award at this year's ceremony. 

Watch him talking about his album below:
