RAF AND O PERFORM DAVID BOWIE as CHILDREN OF THE BEWLAY BROTHERS + THE SONGS OF RAF AND O

London based art-pop duo Raf and O (Raf Mantelli and O Richard Smith) are highly regarded as live performers, they have released four albums to high critical acclaim, they’ve played venues such as Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Union Chapel and performed in theatres, venues and halls all around England.

Alongside their own material and their Kick Inside project celebrating the songs of Kate Bush, 2020 saw Raf and O launching a new show steeped in theatrical tradition: ‘Children Of The Bewlay Brothers’ (to David Bowie with Love) where the pair immerse themselves in renditions and interpretations entirely dedicated to David’s songs delighting the press and fans alike.

David Bowie has always been a huge influence to Raf and O inspiring two original songs: ‘A Bow To Bowie’ from ‘The Space Between Nothing And Desire’ and ‘Tommy Newton’ (The Man Who Fell To Earth) to be released on their next album. They have released Bowie covers across three albums and celebrated the man live on wonderful and prestigious occasions over the last decade.
