Introducing Raury, the 18 year old from Atlanta, USA, is currently one of the most hyped and highly tipped artists in music.
Raury exploded onto the scene earlier this year when he released the self written, self produced video for ‘God’s Whisper’. Refusing to be pigeonholed the singer/songwriter/rapper/guitarist/producer moves between all sides of the musical spectrum citing everyone from Bon Iver to Andre 3000 as influences.
As a self-proclaimed “Indigo Child” Raury considers himself a member of a generation of adolescents, all products of the internet age, who quickly gain an understanding of life’s challenges and opportunities due to their endless access to information. That being said, it’s safe to say that Raury is poised to be one of the leaders of this generation. In his very young career thus far, he has already been championed by the likes of Jay Z, Lorde, Diplo, Kanye West, Danger Mouse, Paul Epworth, SBTRKT and A-Track – to name a few.
Raury will be touring nationally for the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival and various sideshows:
