GAME OF THRONES' "RALEIGH RITCHIE" MAKES AMAZING MUSIC

March 3, 2016

Jacob Anderson is probably best known for his role as "Grey Worm" on the hit HBO TV series - Game Of Thrones. What a lot of people don't know is that, when the rising star isn't filming, he's building a successful music career. 

 

That's right, Anderson is actually only leading the unsullied about 4 weeks out of the year. He becomes UK R&B singer, "Raleigh Ritchie" for the other 48 weeks; recording and touring to promote his music. 

 

This isn't new or a side project for Ritchie, he actually got his big break back in 2008 when he recorded "I Need Love" with Plan B for the "Adulthood" soundtrack. He was quickly picked up by Columbia Records and by his second EP, he had a hit song called "Stronger Than Ever". (Listen Below)

The Bristol-born singer's most recent project comes in the form of a brand new album titled: You're A Man Now, Boy. All the songs have been posted to his youtube channel for free streaming and is also available to buy on itunes

 

This record is definitely a front-to-back listen, So many good songs packed with honest, heartfelt lyrics and electronically infused R&B pop. 

 

Check out a few of my favourites below.

 

 

I Can Change - Raleigh Ritchie

 

 

Werld Is Mine - Raleigh Ritchie

 

 

Life In A Box - Raleigh Ritchie
