#NewMusicTuesday: Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, “Human”
Better known as Rag‘n’Bone Man, British-born singer-songwriter Rory Graham burst onto the popular music charts in 2016 with his hit track, "Human.” Released on Columbia Records, it peaked as a No. 1 single in Austria, Germany, Belgium and Switzerland, and has been certified Gold in Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium and the Netherlands. Rag‘n’Bone Man has also found a great deal of success in his home country, winning the most recent ‘Brits Critics’ Choice Award’.
"Human" is one of those songs that you’re happy to have stuck in your head— Rory Graham’s soulful vocal melodies, combined with the prominent background percussion, make for an instant crowd-pleaser. British publications compared the track’s richness and accessibility to the contemporary pop stylings of Hozier— in an age saturated with pop music, “Human” is a perfect example of authentic artistic expression. This month, Rag‘n’Bone Man is set to drop his debut album; and if “Human" is any sign of the times to come, then the future of this emerging British talent is looking very bright.
