When Reservoir songwriter Jamie Hartman first teamed up with rising blues artist Rag’N’Bone Man on the soulful single “Healed”, it perked up the ears of the industry. However, when their second collaboration, the blistering and powerful “Human”, dropped earlier this Summer, heads really began to turn for the British-born Rag'N'Bone Man, real name Rory Graham. The cut, being touted as his most powerful single yet, has already topped three charts worldwide and has helped Rag’N’Bone Man pick up scores of new fans at every turn. Take a look at six spots you can visit to catch the song this Fall:
