Singer says debut album will 'surprise' people and names favourite new artists

The Great Escape the UK's answer to South By Southwest, a festival to discover new music on a mind-bogglingly huge line-up and enjoy the relaxed charm of Brighton. Among the many new stars performing at this year's event is exciting new artist Raleigh Ritchie, one of the UK's brightest new talents - although some may recognise him from a role in Game Of Thrones...

Ritchie is making waves with his soulful voice and distinct brand of urban sounds that blend elements of garage, R&B and hip-hop. We caught up with Ritchie backstage at The Great Escape in Brighton to discuss his current picks from the new music scene of 2014 and discuss his upcoming debut solo album.

Rahleigh Ritchie's Black and Blue EP is out now.
