Razorrawks began spiritually long before it was obvious to himself there was anything to get spiritual about. Blamed and often berated for the confines of his introvert nature at an early age – music became a function to help translate the dysfunction of the homespun backdrop in which he found himself. Broken family values demand any emptiness be filled with whatever distraction’s necessary to plaster the cracks – life became lyrics became life – this is still the writing on the wall.
Hailing from Preston, he’s unmistakably identified through his original delivery, regional dialect and Northern pride, he combines inspired lyrics over well produced beats drawing influence from all that surrounds him. Due to his eclectic approach comparisons have been made with the likes of John Cooper Clarke, Jamie T, Guy Garvey, The Prodigy and more.
