THE B-SIDE
Rag‘n’Bone Man (Columbia)
3/14/17

WHAT IT IS: Rag‘n’Bone Man has been a prolific underground name for a couple of years now, first as the resident vocalist of rap’s Rum Committee, and then through releases Wolves and the critically acclaimed Disfigured EP. And, like many things, it began with the blues. Having discovered the genre as a child, the rhythmic troubles that rang out from his parents’ record player planted a stubborn seed in this kid’s head. It wasn’t long before the youngster was venturing through classic realms of soul, jazz and folk. His sound perfects an artistic dualism of old and new. He may have honed his trade underground, but Rag‘n’Bone Man is finally stepping out of the shadows. In fact, he just received two BRIT awards for British Breakthrough and Critics Choice.
