FOR FANS OF: HOZIER, MAVERICK SABRE, JACK GARRATT
“Heartbreak’s pretty widespread, innit?” quips the prodigiously talented Rory Graham, nascent star-in-waiting Rag‘n’Bone Man, with a mischievous grin. Graham has injected an exciting new twist into the blues music he grew up with in his parental home in East Sussex bringing it bang up to date using the beats and production methods of contemporary hip hop. Equally he resurrects age-old themes of loss and romantic pain with a voice so immediate, raw and expressive that it transfixes anyone in earshot with its sheer size and elemental power.
Rag'n'Bone Man comes to Live at Leeds as a runner up of the BBC Sound of 2017 poll and winner of the Brit Awards Critic's Choice Award. He's already topped the charts across Europe and 2017 looks like a huge year in the UK with single 'Human' being omnipresent across the airwaves.
