Rory Graham begint als tiener met MC-en, waarbij hij de naam Rag N Bonez gebruikte. Daarvoor kreeg hij de inspiratie uit de Britse serie Steptoe And Son. Zijn vader spoorde hem aan om ook te gaan zingen, wat resulteerde in de EP Blues Town. Zo kwam hij in contact met Marc Crew, de producer die ook voor onder meer Bastille werkte. Met hem kwam de EP Wolves tot stand. In de zomer van 2016 breekt hij door met de single Human, dat door 538 wordt uitgeroepen tot Alarmschijf. Dat gebeurt ook met de opvolger, Skin, die in januari 2017 verschijnt. Op 10 februari 2017 verschijnt zijn debuutalbum, Human. Van dat album wordt As You Are gekozen als derde single.

Na ruim anderhalf jaar afwezigheid keert Rag'N'Bone Man begin 2019 terug met Giant, een samenwerking met Calvin Harris.


Songtekst

You raised the lights when it was frightening
Calmed the storm when it was rising
You found me there where I was hiding
All I have is here and now

If the ground beneath our feet is disappearing
I'll be here beside you
Always be right near you
Remember me, won't you

I know we've all got our problems
And it's a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise
I promise to take you, take you as you are

When I was reaching out in the dark
When the streets below just looked so far
When I forgot everything that I was
All I needed was your love

If the earth beneath our feet is old and caves in
For a second we are fighting
When it's late in the evening
Don't let me go, dear

I know we've all got our problems
And it's a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise
I promise to take you, take you as you are

Take you as you are, as you are
Take you as you are, as you are
Take you as you are, as you are
As you are (As you are)

I know we've all got our problems
And it's a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise (I promise)
I promise to take you, take you as you are

I know we've all got our problems
And it's a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise
I promise to take you, take you as you are
