The unbelievably gifted Brighton resident’s major label debut pops with upliftingly catchy songs, raised to dizzying heights thanks to his unique, smokey, soulful vocals – this man is the real deal.

Rory Graham, aka Rag’n’Bone Man, hails from Uckfield & spent years on the fringes of the UK hip hop scene. Although he's now part of the music industry's marketing machine, don't overlook this eclectic record as beyond the pop sheen, his appeal is broad - classic gospel, swampy blues, contemporary electro, soulful hip hop - there's so much to dig into here. Michael Kiwanuka, Nathaniel Rateliff, Leon Bridges & Algiers all spring to mind as these soul revivalists have come from the similar musical starting points - they've just followed individual trajectories, arriving at very different points on the sonic spectrum. Those phenomenal, belting vocals will take him from East Sussex into the musical stratosphere for sure. "the unlikely missing link between blues giant Robert Johnson & Brits giant Sam Smith" - evening standard.
