To many, 17-year-old Raury from Atlanta has the capability right now to be music’s “next big thing” – I believe it. “God’s Whisper” is his newest single, and only the second song available on the internet. An anthemic production, “God’s Whisper” is his proclamation:
“…That means, my intuition, my natural calling in life is what God’s whisper is. When I say, ‘I am the savior,’ I’m spreading that message to others. You have that whisper to you. You have your intuition. You have your own natural calling that you have to trust and follow,” he continues. (via Billboard)
According to Raury, he’s been dedicated to making a life from his music since the age of nine. With enough foresight to foster his creativity and his talents, the steps being taken around the rollout for his 10-track Indigo Child EP show that he and his team are ready to prove the publications right and get even more people talking – more importantly, the fans.
“God’s Whisper” is one of the eight songs from Indigo Child that is produced by Raury himself. With carefully penned lyrics, and a drum-heavy instrumental, the song is made for large rooms and festival stages. Until he reaches that point though, Raury is taking things into his own hands, and into the streets. Creating his own opportunities, and generating more recognition, last night the young artist launched his #AntiTour outside of an Odd Future concert at The Tabernacle, a 2,600-capacity concert hall in Downtown Atlanta.
With eight years of development under his belt, and plenty more to come, Raury is rapidly paving his own lane with his artistry. Looking at the flyer above (posted on his social media), it seems that the #AntiTour will feature the performance of “God’s Whisper” by Raury on top of a white van outside of large scale concert venues as soon as shows get out throughout the next three months.
In his interview with ShufSounds, Raury places himself in the conversation with artists like King Krule, Chance The Rapper, and Lorde – musicians that are making a sound that is “so blended and genuinely unique that you don’t know what to call it.” Though Billboard described Raury as a nervous individual when they first met him, the responses in all of his interviews show us that he is well-spoken, and clear with the goals he’s established for this journey towards the forefront of music.
