Rory Graham aka Rag ‘N’ Bone man is a soul and blues singer deeply rooted in the annals of the past but positioned firmly in the present and future of the underground UK music scene.
A music man since an early age; his mother an acclaimed singer and his father an accomplished guitarist, a very hands-on musical soundtrack has been a significant part of Rag ‘N’ Bone mans life since the very beginning.
Such a harmonic upbringing emanates and breathes on each every track where you can find his unique vocal tones.
Having moved to Brighton in 2009 and swiftly forging music-making ties with producer Gizmo and DJ Direct, Rag ‘N’ Bone man’s musical journey took a turn for the interesting when he began collaborating with South coast super crew Rum Committee.
Dozens of live shows later, both plugged and unplugged, Rag ‘N’ Bone man released his first fully fledged solo release to critical acclaim late last year. An acoustic hip hop outing of the highest calibre, ‘Bluestown’ saw Rag ‘N’ Bone man establish the unique position in which he currently stands; the most enterprising and forward-thinking singer within a rap scene desperate for accomplished and unique vocal lyricists.
Having signed to High Focus Records in early 2013, the future has changed and fluxed, but ultimately led to Rag ‘N’ Bone Man opening doors to a whole series of exciting and groundbreaking musical collaborations, both live and on wax, which glimmer brightly on the horizon. Collaborations aside, 2014 is set to be the year that Rag ‘N’ Bone establishes himself as one of the most forward-thinking and technically gifted blues singers in the United Kingdom.
