It’s hard to pin down exactly what is it about the Toronto-born, JUNO award-nominated artist RALPH (Raffa Weyman) that has captured the devotion of fans across the country. Whether it’s her high-fashion yet effortlessly cool aesthetic, her irresistible blend of vintage pop and lush contemporary beats, or the raw honesty that comes through her lyricism, one thing is certain – there is a rarity about an artist such as RALPH.
With an emphasis on narrative songwriting and genre-bending musical style, RALPH has created a special role for herself within the contemporary music scene; a sound that is catchy but cool, sexy but smart, edgy but evocative. She’s developed a soundscape that is uniquely her own, but what truly makes RALPH’s songs special is that they are ferociously honest and relatable. This finesse sent her hit track “Gravity” up the radio charts into the Top 20, followed by a JUNO award nomination for Dance Recording of the Year.
