singer-songwriter RVBY has unveiled ‘Glow’, her third single of the year,
out 25th October via Funnel Music.
‘Glow’ sees RVBY harnessan

Prior to that RVBY released ‘Honey Bee’, a quirky, cutting-edge pop song with an inspiring
message, the follow-up to last year’s mesmerising debut single L.O.V.E.
Things have been
similarly busy on the gig front, with RVBY
supporting Georgia Box at the Islington Academy at the end of August
and performing at both Dot to Dot
Festival and Liverpool’s Sound City
in May. She also played at Karma Club,
an event curated by BBC Introducing’s Abbie McCarthy which took place at Sebright Arms, as well as McCarthy’s other event series called Gold Dust at Notting Hill Arts Club, performing alongside the likes of Emilia Tarrant, Elm and Adam Rom.
Continuing her ascent
through the pop ranks, RVBY is a
budding artist in possession of all the attributes necessary to make it to the
