hmv's Next Big Thing... #5 Raury
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Atlanta troubadour Raury...
Who Is He?
Raury Tullis is 18 and hails from Atlanta in the heart of the Deep South of America. He's been singing since age nine and has been the talk of the internet for the last two years. Well, bits of it anyway.
Who Does He Sound Like?
His voice has a smoky, raw edge, with the rasp of Tom Waits blended with the silk of Frank Ocean, but there's plenty of old skool hip-hop in his tunes too.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Because he makes powerful, simple, but deeply, deeply affecting tunes. That's all we need.
Can I Hear Something?
You most certainly can, 'Cigarette Song' is below for you. His early tracks are here in our digital store.
