Raleigh Ritchie

It’s a bold artist who opens their first album with the line “I’m gonna live forever“, and that’s exactly how Raleigh Ritchie chooses to announce his arrival on You’re A Man Now, Boy.

But the 25-year-old is far from your typical cocky pop star. And the initial bravado that explores the follies and excesses of youth eventually gives way to a more settled, mature individual. In short, it’s about growing up. That’s not to say Ritchie is totally there yet.

Each track on ‘You’re A Man Now, Boy’ was written by Raleigh Ritchie, in conjunction with acclaimed producers close to Raleigh, who shared his vision for the album. Producers include Sounwave (Kendrick Lamar), Chris Loco (Kwabs), Justin Broad & Paul Herman (Eminem, Emeli Sande, Izzy Bizu), Mike Elizondo (Dr.Dre / Eminem) and DJ Dahi (Drake). The album also features string performances by Rosie Danvers’ Wired Strings (Adele, Kanye West, Noel Gallagher). Both the album’s artwork and the two-part epic video for single ‘Bloodsport ‘15’ were made by award-winning creative trio Shynola (Coldplay, Radiohead, Queens Of The Stone Age, Junior Senior).

The release of ‘You’re A Man Now, Boy’ comes following a year of successes for Raleigh Ritchie – real name Jacob Anderson. 2015 saw him perform on stage with Run DMC followed by supporting George Ezra on his UK tour. He has also previously supported Kendrick Lamar. Ritchie performed on the main stage at Wireless Festival as well Leeds/Reading and Glastonbury, before embarking on his own sold out UK tour.
