Luke Bather - 23rd Feb 2017

Shaun James Grant teams up with Vevo Lift to bring us this wonderful, stripped down performance from Rag'N'Bone Man.

The live performance features a striking, minimalist design and lighting so subtle that the performance is barely more than a collection of silhouettes. The camera movements are delicate sweeps, creeps, and glides weightlessly, letting Rag'N'Bone Man's raw performance lift us into a state of bliss for four minutes.

This performance is accompanied by a short portrait film, Becoming Rag'N'Bone Man, also directed by Grant, in which Graham discusses his craft as a singer-songwriter.


"For the performance I wanted to create something simple, yet striking, allowing Rory to hold centre court and do what he does best without having to think about anything else.

"The film was all about representing him in a way that reflects his character and emergence into the lime light. Visually discussing the idea of him dealing with this new found attention whilst staying true to himself."
