It was recently announced that 18 year old ATLien musical prodigy Raury has come 4th in the BBC Sound Of 2015 Poll. The news accompanies the announcement of his upcoming single and first release of the year – ‘God’s Whisper’ – which will be released on March 16th via Columbia.
Needing little introduction, Raury burst onto the scene last year with his ‘Indigo Child’ EP which was the perfect introduction to a very individual sound and aesthetic that tips its wide-brimmed hat to rock, soul and hip hop while creating its own sub genre that’s just pure Raury, as anyone who saw his one sold out UK show in East London or SBTRKT support slot will know only too well.
Since then, Raury has been cemented as one of the most hotly tipped artists for 2015. His first offering of the year will be his new single ‘God’s Whisper’ – released via Columbia on March 16th. With unlimited ambition and truly unique talent Raury’s own debut album will come later this year as 2015 looks increasingly Raury’s for the taking.
