June 10 marked the 18th birthday of the tenacious and talented Altana songwriter RAURY, who collaborated with SBTRKT, swapped tracks with Kanye West and got booked to open for OutKast, all before releasing a single record.
Cultivating his craft of singing, songwriting and production since the age of nine, Raury has been turning heads with his intriguing and unique blend of rap, folk and soul as heard on his debut LP Indigo Child (Columbia Records). His intelligent lyrics double as the voice of his generation, talking about the frustrations of adolescence and the deeply felt topics of acceptance and ambition. We can't wait to see what he comes up with on the live stage during his first trip to Australia. Prep yourself with his stunning video for his breakout single 'God's Whisper'
