Our feature for today’s Knead To Know is the fantastic Farrow & Friends Promotions 🤘 they host various open mics across Manchester and they’re a real cornerstone of the scene!
During the pandemic last year they hosted open mics over at Lions Den Bar Deansgate each Friday and provided a fantastic covid-secure environment for performers to keep going, with busy nights each week with some of Manchester’s finest artists and really kept the scene alive during a tough time! 🌞
They now host two open mics – the Friday one down at Lions Den as previously mentioned and also one on a Sunday at Royal Oak, Chorlton-Cum-Hardy 🤘 they have featured artists for each one, if you want to perform just drop them a message! 😊

our Knead To Know feature today is the fantastic Tom Metcalfe Music! originally from Preston (we’ve known Tom a long time!) Tom has just moved to Manchester and is sure to be a familiar face on the local scene
not only writing his own music, Tom also works as a guitar tutor, teaching not only guitar but extensively music theory, which he is extremely proficient in – he’s easily able to make even the most complicated theory easy to understand for budding guitarists; we’ve spoken to him about all kinds of scales and he’s taught us a whole bunch!
he’s also a session musician, multi-instrumentalist, composer.. if you need anyone to jump in and help out on a track, get in touch with him! he attained a Master’s Degree with Distinction in Music (Performance) from Salford University last year with a record-breaking mark of 96! he’s often seen performing as a flamenco guitarist with dance accompaniment – definitely one to watch here in Manchester.
Tom will also be the featured artist tonight at Lions Den Bar Deansgate for Laura Farrow‘s open mic – come on down and catch him doing what he does, you’ll surely be astounded at his guitarwork! if you’re looking for a guitar tutor, get in contact with Tom for sure. one of the best around!
for our Knead To Know feature today, we’ve got the absolutely incredible Mad Fox studio! they’ve been super busy lately, producing and recording some incredible music over there – including releases from Minervadaisy MILLICENT Kestrel Palace and Supera Morza
Tayte started this studio to provide not only a recording space for bands and artists – but to try and give them a platform for their music to not only be heard but evolve and develop. The work he has been doing on production is absolutely incredible, and the studio has only gone from strength to strength over the last year! They’ve been seeing radio play from not only BBC Music Introducing but also XS Manchester Amazing Radio and getting on some huge Spotify editorial playlists.
he’s even expanded out to having two main studios now, allowing up and coming producers and engineers to come in and rent the rooms for their own recording projects – absolutely incredible stuff. there’s some fantastic gear over there too, industry-standard equipment but also some preamps used by The Beatles on three of their albums!!
definitely, definitely a serious Knead To Know up here in the North West. we’re absolutely in awe of how Tayte has provided a lovely space for the community and we CAN NOT wait to see what else he has in store in the future! drop them a message or go to their contact at https://www.madfoxmanchester.com/contact to get in touch with any enquiries!
Jess is a photographer originally from Liverpool, but now based up in Leeds for university. She’s been getting involved in the local music scenes across the North West for a few years now, and has been working a bunch with creatives across Liverpool up until the pandemic – and is looking now to expand further out into Leeds now that things are opening up again
As restrictions ease, Jess is hoping to make an impact with photography, focusing on gig photography and photoshoots for musicians, but also hoping to expand out into fashion and portrait photography. We’re proper looking forward to what is in store for Jess over the next few months, and her photography is insanely great!!
