Raven Artson is a Los
Angeles-based neon crooner that shares personal compositions about his coming
of age by combining internal monologue with enigmatic performances. In doing so he analyses both the
smooth and the thorny angles of the self, simultaneously exploring pop culture
and underground art.
This duality, or
balance if you will, is where Raven finds inspiration to write. As he puts it
himself: "I'm interested in the coexistence of ideas; in allowing the
process of winning and losing to connect." This results in a sound that's
hard to pigeonhole - call it ethereal pop, call it 'tear dripping auto tune'.
Raven is highly ambitious:
the singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist creative directs his
own video's, composes movie soundtracks like Madja Amin's 'Stray Sheep' and
produces for artists like Mucky (Sevdaliza), Pip Blom and Ray Fuego. More
recently he started curating his own interdisciplinary shows, which allowed
fashion designers like Hardeman and Hanger Inc. to collaborate with artist like
himself, True Blue, Beskhen and Cosima.
