British singer Rag’n’Bone Man (real name Rory Graham) propelled himself into the global spotlight with his first single Human in 2016, the song reaching No 1 in Austria, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland.
The following year he released the debut album of the same name, also featuring Skin, As You Are and Grace, and was named British Breakthrough Act at the 2017 BRIT Awards.
Having toured extensively in the UK on his Human tour, Graham is heading for Europe playing venues such as France’s Zenith de Lille (cap. 7,000) in Lille, the Czech Republic’s Forum Karlin (2,500) in Prague and Norway’s Sentrum Scene (1,750) in Oslo, before moving on to dates in Australia and New Zealand.
“Rory is an incredible talent,” says his international agent Alex Hardee at UK-based Coda Agency. “When I first heard him sing he did not have the big hits, but he had a one-in-a-million voice and I knew he was the genuine article.
“When he joined Sony and things did not take off as quickly as expected, I told everyone ‘don’t panic, he is selling tickets without hits or radio – this will work’. And a year later it did.”
The singer is managed by Josh Smith and Polly Comber at Black Fox Management in Brighton, UK.
