Rag n Bone Man Presents was welcomed to a sold-out intimate Sound Control last night. It was a live night of music for upcoming artists in the industry – a show thought of and created by Rag N Bone Man himself.
Opening the evening was Indie-Folk singer Megan Dixon Hood, a rising star from BIMM Manchester who’s hit ‘Early Morning Riser’ has gained popularity from Radio 2 royalty Sir Terry Wogan – and this was no surprise, as her live rendition of the song received a thunderous ovation from the audience. Megan’s haunting vocals almost left the room in a zen-like trance, as the 19-year-old’s powerful emotion-inducing lyrics in her following songs, ‘Sirens’ and finally ‘With Time’, rounded off an incredible set.
Next up was River Matthews, who wowed the audience in attendance with his passionate and almost-raspy voice, and his performance of ‘Imogen’ a song which he wrote for his niece – received a huge response from the audience.
Both Megan and River gave outstanding performances, and through playing the live night have given themselves incredible exposure for the future.
