Get To Know: Raff

I’m still surprised, often on a daily basis, how much talent there is going unnoticed on the UK soul scene at the moment (I’m sure the same also applies to other genres too). Even if I just take the last 2/3 months, there are at least 10 artists who I can honestly say are better than 85% of what is currently deemed ‘popular’, however they recieve little or no exposure from mainstream media outlets (only the other week two of the UK’s finest were providing BVs to a rather bland artist on a TV show watched by millions).

The latest artist I came across is a very talented singer called Raff. Having been brought up in Scotland by his Italian parents, he decided to venture to the bright lights of London to pursue a career in music. He has performed gigs all over the capital and regularly appears alongside singers such as Natalie Williams and Sharlene Hector at Ronnie Scott’s famed ‘Soul Family’ events.
