Breadstock: Artist Focus continued! πŸž

Here’s the rest of the lineup for our event Breadstock on Monday!

Laura Farrow – Laura is a Manchester-based singer songwriter who hosts her own weekly open mic night at Lions Den Manchester every Monday (when not in quarantine!) Her first EP ‘Waiting For Something’ is a lovely collection of her songs, and she’s just released another EP ‘One Take’ which really encapsulates her live performances – definitely worth checking out!!

O’Neill Bros – we’ve known the O’Neill Bros for a long time now and their americana/folk rock blend is right up our street! We’ve had them perform for us a few times and they’ve recently started up Music Solid which focuses on promoting local artists – a venture we can all get behind! Check out their EP ‘Flight of the Earls’ here!

Edward Thomas – Ed is a regular on the local music scene, performing across Manchester on a very regular basis through open mics and gigs! His intricate guitarwork is always great to hear, and the structuring of his songs brings a fresh twist to modern singer-songwriters! Check out his first single ‘Breathe / Business or Death’ here!

Millicent – we’ve personally known Millie for a very long time, being from Preston and she’s only gone from strength to strength! Her vocal talent is insane and her songwriting work really stands her out from the rest – her 2018 release ‘Senses’ is full of great tracks and gives us a great glimpse into her ability – find it on Spotify here!

Harrison Rimmer – Harrison is a Bread regular nowadays, performing at plenty of our gigs and often making an appearance at our open mics – especially with the turn to virtual spaces for performance! We love his music – he’s able to write folk-punk tunes such as ‘Ripped Up Magazine’ and then also bring it down to a more relaxed level with songs such as ‘I Am On Fire’ (which we featured on the first episode of Bread Radio!) and ‘Scared’. He’s just released a brand new EP ‘Broken Strings’ which is definitely worth a stream!

Mathew Kerry – Mathew is another artist who we’ve featured heavily lately – easily one of our favourite artists on the scene and a lovely chap too! His songwriting capability and lyrical wizardry are evident as soon as you listen to him, especially on his single ‘Paper Round’ which we’re huge fans of! You can find his EP ‘Okie Dokie?’ on Spotify here – we went down to the launch last year and had a lovely time πŸ™‚

michael webster – we don’t think we need to talk too much about our next artist. Michael runs the label and hosts all of our gigs – inspired by artists such as Courtney Barnett, Kate Bush, Bob Dylan, Neil Young – and everyone on the scene too! Check out his music on Spotify or Bandcamp!

Wanda Roslyn – we’ve only known Wanda for a while but we’re truly amazed by what we’ve seen! Unreal songwriting capabilities and intricate performances. Would be perfect on a Sofar Sounds gig. We are super looking forward to new music!!

Matt Smedley – Matt is a guitarist whose talent is beyond belief – gets better every time we see him perform. His guitarwork is insane, such care taken with each note and melodies that could fit into a lovely soundscape! Definitely worth checking out. We featured him on Just The Crust a few weeks back – you can find his music on Spotify here! He also recently put out a collaborative release with Benjamin Finney which is amazing!

That’s the lot! A lot of artists to check out, and plenty of great musicians performing for you on Bank Holiday Monday! Go check out the event page on Facebook! πŸ‘½
