Manchester Artists

North Base

Must listen for fans of D&B - Been smashing it for years on the dance music circuit. I have released two collaborations with the Drum & Bass duo and we are currently working on a future release together - so look out for that!


Rock n Roll indie lads - huge tunes these boys have been producing and growing bigger with each release and show. They have a headline show at Band on The Wall in Manchester 1st September.

Anthony Szmierek

First heard his tunes through BBC Introducing in Manchester - got a real edge and something unique going with his music. Love his tune The Words to Auld Lang Syne - cool concept behind the theme and lyrics.


What a voice this Manchester songstress has! Pure soul and exactly what I like to hear in music. No gimmicks required - you can't teach vocals like this!


Band on The Wall

Such a good venue in Manchester. See many shows here including Craig Charles Funk and Soul show which is class!

The venue has also been recently refurbed - the live sound is always top notch + also run an education programme for local communities.

Deaf Institute

The music hall is class - Live Gigs, Comedy & Club nights in the ballroom under a massive mirrorball. Just off Oxford road in the heart of the city Centre.

Albert Hall

Bucket list venue for me - I would love to play here. I recently saw Maverick Sabre play live - who is a big inspiration to my music. Unreal setting in this grade 2 listed building - a must visit music venue in Manchester.

Record Store

SK1 in Stockport, Greater Manchester. Cafe and record store in Stockport's Old Town. Do a great job at showcasing local talent!
