Rory Graham (aka Rag’n’Bone Man) announces the release of his highly anticipated debut album HUMAN, out on February 10, 2016
News of the album comes as Rory was announced as the winner of the prestigious 2017 BRITs Critics’ Choice Award, beating out Dua Lipa and Anne-Marie, previously won by the likes of Adele, Sam Smith and Emilie Sande.
2016 has been an incredible year for Rory. Having been longlisted on the BBC Sound Of Poll for 2017 and being nominated for Best Breakthrough for the 2017 BRIT Awards, his single ‘Human’ has been an incredible success.
‘Human’ has now been certified Gold in eight countries, streamed over 76 million times and hit the number 1 spot on official charts in 9 countries. ‘Human’ is currently certified GOLD in Australia and is a Top 20 single.
The phenomenal success of ‘Human’ around the globe follows years of relentless performing for Rory. At the age of just 15 he started rapping in his hometown of Uckfield and then at 19, encouraged by his father, started singing at local blues nights. His combined love for blues and rap soon developed into something bigger, when he joined Brighton’s hip-hop crew The Rum Committee, regularly travelling up to London to play hip-hop nights in Brixton. The releases of his BLUES TOWN, WOLVES and DISFIGURED EPs earned him huge crowds across the country, firming a dedicated fan base incredibly early on in his career.
