In 2009 Rory Graham aka Rag’n’Bone Man moved to Brighton from the small town of Uckfield, East Sussex to pursue his music career. In Brighton he seeked out open mic nights and other underground music events to crack into the scene. Years and multiple awards later, he’s paying it forward to the community and music scene that helped launch his career. Working alongside social enterprise AudioActive, Rory is helping to support and nurture grassroots musical talent through mentorship, workshops and performances.
AudioActive is a ground-breaking music organisation working with young people at the meeting point of technology and contemporary culture. They believe that music is a tool for social change, education and personal development. Many of the young musicians at AudioActive come from rough backgrounds, where there is violence in the home or mental health issues, and music offers the platform to overcome these obstacles.
Rag’n’Bone Man’s debut album “Human” was released in 2017 and has sold an incredible 3.2 million copies worldwide. The singer has won 3 Brit Awards to date.
“AudioActive are doing something to ensure that regardless of wealth or background, young people get a chance to be creative. I can’t support that enough. Big love.” – Rag’n’Bone Man
