Rag'n'Bone Man, aka BRIT & Echo Award winner Rory Graham, will perform at Rockhal in Esch-Belval on Tuesday 7 November 2017 at 20:00 (doors open at 19:00).
Neo-blues & soul singer Rory Graham was born and raised in the small town of Uckfield in the south-east of England. Growing up on early blues and soul, he taught himself to sing by mimicking Muddy Waters, before discovering hip-hop. Starting out in music at age 15 as an MC with a local drum'n'bass crew, he progressed to hip-hop open-mike nights in nearby Brighton, where he later moved, teaming up with local hip-hop crew the Rum Committee. Aged 19, he took part in a blues open-mike night at the encouragement of his father, and the rapturous response to his singing boosted his confidence enough to make him consider it as a career rather than rapping. His increasing profile brought him to the attention of Columbia Records, who signed him in 2016. His debut single for Columbia, "Human," dropped in September of that year and was a big hit in several European countries, topping the charts in Germany. It has now been certified Diamond in France, Platinum in 8 countries, held the number one spot on the European Airplay chart for five weeks and hit the number 1 spot on iTunes in 46 countries.
So far in 2017 Rory has won two BRIT Awards – making him the first BRITs Critics’ Choice Award winner to win Best British Breakthrough Act in the same year - sold out tours across Europe & the UK including two nights at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire, and performed on The Graham Norton Show, Comic Relief, Later with Jools Holland, The Jimmy Fallon Show, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Rory will appear at festivals across the Summer in the UK and beyond.
