Rag'n'Bone Man (UK)

Rag'n'Bone Man

With his combination of soul, blues, and hip hop, Rory Graham, known by his stage name Rag'n'Bone Man, is following the footsteps of superstars such as Sam Smith and Adele. His single Human, which was released last summer, became a massive international hit and early this year Rag'n'Bone Man won the highly coveted and valued Critics' Choice Award in the Brit Awards. Previous winners of this award are indeed Adele and Smith, so it's pretty safe to say that Rag'n'Bone Man has a bright future ahead.

The hip hop roots of Rag'n'Bone Man's music can be heard in the tempting beats. Instead of rapping, however, the lyrics are conveyed through Gallagher's fierce vocals and majestic melodies. These songs are made for stadiums and James Bond opening credits, and luckily the fresh new album Human is full of them. The year 2017 belongs to Rag'n'Bone Man!
