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.
