Spotlight!: Rag’n’Bone Man


Though at first glance he might not look like it, Brighton based bluesman Rory Graham, better known as Rag’N’Bone Man, is a force to be reckoned with. He has one of the most powerful and distinctive voices around, and can equally excel with deep gritty delta blues and tender soulful ballads. With such unparalleled vocals at his disposal, he’s well equipped to dabble with any genre that takes his fancy. He has a fling with hard rock on ‘Hard Came The Rain’ and plays around with his earlier hip hop influences on tracks such as ‘Wolves’. Personally I think his talent captured best in the massive singles ‘Bitter End’ and ‘Lay My Body Down’; he truly has the kind of voice that only comes around once in a generation.

With such a varied repertoire he’s sure to tick boxes for many people, and following his appearance at Glastonbury last year he’s set to emerge from the underground and take the world by storm.
