Ralegh Long is a Singer-Songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and film composer whose music has been celebrated for its "mystical longing" (The Guardian). Growing up in the English countryside, his music draws on a childhood spent wandering fields and streams and recording onto a 1970's reel-to-reel tape recorder given to him by a neighbour.
His debut album Hoverance (2015) drew comparisons to Nick Drake, and acclaim from Lauren Laverne, Guy Garvey, and The Guardian for its "twilit ambience" and "spooky pastoralism". His second album, "Upwards of Summer" (2017) won support from Elton John. In parallel, Long contributed to the scores of BAFTA-nominated films Black Pond and The Darkest Universe. In 2018 he began a run of standalone singles including "Super Blue Moon" and "Where You Are", which amassed over 8 Million streams to date, featuring on Spotify playlists such as New Music Friday and The Most Beautiful Songs in the World.
In September 2020 it was announced that he had scored the second series of the hit BBC TV show "Ghosts". A new E.P of delicate piano instrumentals, "Winter", followed in November, featuring on a number of Apple Music editorials and receiving acclaim from sources such as Clash Magazine, who celebrated its "spartan grace and sublime minimalism".
"He seems incapable of sitting at a piano and coming up with anything that doesn’t tremble with almost mystical longing ... you’ll be reminded variously of Nilsson, early Todd Rundgren, even Alex Chilton at his most overwrought and wracked." The Guardian
