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 released his first project on 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. Rag ‘N’ Bone
has since established himself as one of the most forward-thinking
and technically gifted blues singers in the United Kingdom.
