The singing Oracle Lord Rar (Ra) , also known as Michael Joseph is 5'10" tall dark and handsome. His is an act which involves both the creator and the performer manifesting as one person in the flesh. The salt of the earth - the creme de la creme of artists, he is a beautiful divine magnetic glam man - a brilliant "genius", "interesting and wild, Femi Kuti meets Nina Simone". He is here to entertain people of every English speaking race and creed, and to get some material credit for it.
He is truly so unique genuine and original that at first he may seem to be a misfit maverick. He harks to both the young and old alike and it is a fallacy to ignore this. But no other singer songwriter has the experience that he had and has to draw from, no matter where on earth they may be. Others just don't have his compelling calibre and quality of talent. His performance is loaded with entertainment. He's a knockout performer.
He studied music in High School. After finishing with High School he went into private study with various musical instructors. He has over the past 5 years regularly performed at many of Melbourne's Hotels . The list of his inspirations is too long to mention but 3 of them are Michael Jackson, Robby Williams, and Delta Goodrem. The presently well known musician called Lorde took her name from his name.
With an eclectic taste for the leading genres he brings out the soul in music from the depths of his heart and soul. His range is from the best of Mod Jazz to Rock and Pop. Although there may seem to be "nothing new under the sun" lord Rar is "distinctively new", refreshing and so is his music. He makes the difference between those who walk in the light and the light of the sun itself. You know there is no mega star, no superstar greater than the sun. Lend him your ears. Give him "a reason to live". Come along and see him at the Elwood Lounge every second Wednesday night, or the Balaclava Hotel on Thursday nights.
