Raw Earth is a blues, rock and soul band made up of a stellar line-up consisting of some of Singapore’s most prominent musicians including Danny Loong and Francis Chan (from the critically acclaimed Ublues), Victor Chen (winner of Strip Acoustic at Wala Wala), Surath Godfrey and Hanrong (rock outfit Reverie). A combination of forces to lock in a strong groove with an old school flavour, accompanied by vibrant on-stage improvisation and interaction promises to keep things interesting for the audience. They have performed at major festivals such as Byron Bay Bluesfest 2016, Beerfest Asia, Timbre Rock & Roots and other festivals where they shared billing or have opened for music legends such as Robert Plant, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Bonnie Raitt just to name a few.
The band performs an wide array of old school music styles from the 50s to 70s such as blues, rock and roll, funk, soul and even some classic blues rock. Their repertoire includes songs by Jimi Hendrix, Free, Bad Company, CCR, Grand Funk Railroad, Albert Collins, T- Bone Walker, BB King, The Beatles, Otis Redding, James Brown amongst others.
While most current pop and rock music have gone more technical and predictable, Raw Earth attempts to retain the concept of soul and groove within their music through their performance. Sometimes you don’t know what you are going to get at a Raw Earth show however you will be assured of only a professional, heartfelt and passionate performance by each member.
