2018 Ones To Watch #5 – RAFFER


Singer and Songwriter Callum Rafferty is the young and prosperous talent behind the indie and electronic artist RAFFER.

The Kent-based musician took his self-produced music to the stage last year with grace and passion with his high energy drive inside of a diverse melodic frame and now has the chance to progress to a wider audience in 2018.

At only 19, he has received radio play from BBC Introducing and was nominated for Greatest Discovery in our ICM Awards 2017. RAFFER’s fix on 80’s retro aesthetic and melodic beats

With a stream of singles released in 2017 including ‘Together‘, ‘Street Light Dancing‘ and today (January 5), his new single ‘Need You’, RAFFER gets personal. The lyrics “I need you, your touch, your love. I craved it so much.” express Rafferty’s passion and enthusiasm over the swinging riffs in his 80’s style.

Having literally burst out onto the scene in 2017, don’t panic, there will be plenty of new music and shows where you can see RAFFER in action, stay tuned on his social media to stay up to date. He’s certainly one to watch out for!
