Angeles-Amsterdam-based multi-hyphenate Raven Artson explores artistic growthat the edge of ecstasy and thrill. In doing so, he carves out a unique
sound that is simultaneously otherworldly as authentically human.
A junction of sorts, 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." The result is a vibe that’s hard to pigeonhole - call
it slow motion hyper pop, call it tear dripping auto tune.
This vision led
to airplay by BBC1’s Jack Saunders and Elton John, contributing to Sevdaliza’s
sophomore album, composing the soundtrack for Madja Amin’s ‘May’ and playing
the lead role in Folkert Verdoorn’s short film ‘The Performer’. He might not be
aware himself, but Raven is slowly becoming the pop-icon he always looked up
