Raury plays Pandora Discovery Den on Thursday 19 March at 4PM
Raury is a special kind of talent. Although age is proving less and less of a factor in the era of beyond-their-years acts like Lorde, Earl Sweatshirt and King Krule, it’s worth noting Raury only just celebrated his 18th birthday on 10th June with Raurfest, his first official show.
He now finds himself with a debut album, ‘Indigo Child’, making its rounds on the web, and will be opening for OutKast at their Atlanta homecoming show on September 27th, alongside one of his other all-time favourites, KiD CuDi. During our conversation Raury asks almost as many questions as he answers; he ensures that he knows my name at the beginning of the interview and catches me off guard several times, asking what I’ve been listening to lately and what I thought of the online game that fans must complete to unlock his album.
