Laneway Presents Raury

Atlanta-bred folk hip-hop prodigy Raury today reveals that he will play two intimate headline shows next month; Raury will hit the stage at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on Tuesday 16th February and Melbourne’s Howler on Saturday 20th February. Tickets will go on sale at 9am local time tomorrow.

In the country as a special guest on A$AP Rocky’s national tour, the self-proclaimed ‘Indigo Child’ returns to Australian shores almost exactly a year after his debut live appearances, which saw him play to revellers at 2015’s travelling Laneway Festival.

19 year-old Raury considers himself a product of the internet age; part of a generation of adolescents who gain understanding of life’s opportunities and challenges through their endless access to information. This mature viewpoint captivated fans and critics alike on the debut mixtape ‘Indigo Child’, released in late-2014 and establishing the young artist as a unique and confident new talent, expertly straddling folk, hip-hop, rock, indie, soul and more. The follow-up is ‘All We Need’, the anticipated debut studio album which was released in October last year to widespread acclaim and has been described as an LP “full of confidently expressed delicateness” by The New York Times.

Current single ‘Friends’ sees Raury team up with iconic Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello in a cruisy soulful alternative-rock jam.

Set to turn up the heat for Raury on both Sydney and Melbourne dates is young local vocalist-producer JOY. JOY’s anticipated self-produced debut EP ‘Ode’ was released in August last year, and features the triple j staple ‘About Us’.

TICKETS ON SALE AT 9:00AM LOCAL TIME, FRIDAY 15TH JANUARY
