Following on from the release of his brand new single “The Greatest”, Raleigh Ritchie, aka Jacob Anderson, has today shared an energetic live performance of the track, and it is truly addictive. Get ready to jump around your desk, pretty wildly.
Blending elements of alternative RnB with Trip Hop, Raleigh Ritchie doesn't make R&B music, or soul music, or indie music, or pop music. 23-year-old Raleigh Ritchie makes a unique amalgamation of all of those genres, contorting his varied influences – from Morrissey to Erykah Badu, via the Maccabees and Maxwell. The vocalist shares vibrant lyricism and addictive flare, with energy and emotion oozing from every song.
This live performance is no different, with Raleigh’s sheer ability and passion, ensuring our eyes stay glued to the screen. With support from the likes of Pitchfork, Hypetrak, Line of Best Fit and more, this young performer is moving in the realms of tastemaker talent, and is a firm one-to-watch for 2015. After announcing a support slot on tour with George Ezra, Raleigh Ritchie turns his attention to his own headline shows later this year.
