Rag ‘N’ Bone Man has been a prolific underground name for a couple of years now, honing a ferocious live reputation through guitar wielding solo performances, as the resident vocalist of rap’s Rum Committee, and now through his first release through Sony Music, Human.
Rag ‘N’ Bone Man (real name Rory Graham) has also been nominated for a second BRIT Award this year. The nomination for British Breakthrough Artist follows an incredible 2016 for the singer: recently crowned winner of the coveted BRITs Critics’ Choice Award and coming second in the BBC Sound Of 2017. His First Single Human has reached #1 on iTunes in an outstanding 33 countries, reached Platinum status in 4 countries and Gold in 6. Human also landed the #2 spot in the Official UK Charts race this Christmas, has been streamed 105 million times and peaked at #2 in the Worldwide Shazam chart. Along the way Rory has also gained a plethora of fans from legends such as Chaka Khan, De La Soul and Elton John, who regularly plays Rory’s music on his Beats 1 show. – Billboard
“Behind the mighty beard and even mightier voice, a sensitive soul lurks. Meet the UK’s very own southern bluesman” – Q.
“Rory Graham is going to be huge…every song lands like a punch to the heart. It is a big, emotional record, rooted in musical styles that transcend fashion” – The Daily Telegraph.
Rag’N’Bone Man’s new album Human debuted at #1 in South Africa.
A modern classic reminiscent of the work of British blues and roots greats such as Joe Cocker but packaged in a contemporary sound that fuses blues, hip hop and pop.
