Came across Raury’s Soundcloud and was instantly a fan. I love the fact that he can’t be thrown into a genre. He’s more on the alternative side, but ultimately I would say his music is an experience. His songwriting is vivid, his vocals are smooth and his delivery is confident. The crazy part is he’s only 18! I’m looking forward to seeing his career blossom and I believe he has a bright future ahead of him.
