Party in the Pantry: Artist Focus!

We thought we’d do a massive post about the artists we having coming up for you on Saturday for Party in the Pantry alongside Manchester Women Songwriters!

Rob Crampton – we’ve caught Rob plenty of times on the local circuit and he always continues to impress us! we featured his latest single ‘Deeper Than A Thousand Miles’ on our ‘Just The Crust’ a few weeks back and it’s a brilliant song! Check it out on Spotify here! Definitely one to watch on the scene!

Sophie Grace Ahmed – we’re huge fans of Sophie’s music, we’ve known her for a long time and she is fantastic! we love her honest and focused songwriting style – a huge talent on the scene! can’t wait to see what she’s got planned for us this time 🙂

Claire Jordan – Claire is a familiar face across Manchester especially over at MWS gigs and she always excels! her songwriting ability is lovely and she always delivers a captivating performance! we can’t wait to catch her set, sure it’s going to be fantastic!

Chloe Lawrence – we aren’t really that familiar with Chloe!! so we’re going to post an excerpt from Manchester Women Songwriters’ post‘From her bohemian roots in the mountains of Spain, Chloe has been forged in the folk revelations of the 60’s. Her natural wanderlust led her to revelously dance barefoot with her audience at beach parties and juxtapose this with contemplative intimate sets, where the ethos of her style showcases the classical elements of folk music, synergising it with her own fierce independent modernity.’ We can’t wait to catch her set!! you can catch her latest release ‘CAFÉ’ here!

Ade – Ade is one of our favourite songwriters on the scene, with an absolutely recognisable songwriting talent that has delighted listeners all across Manchester! we love his music and he is a fantastic person – he keeps on releasing fantastic songs and we absolutely can’t wait to catch him performing live for us again. go and find his music on Spotify here!

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!

That’s about it for our post.. make sure you catch us on Saturday from 7pm on the Facebook pages Bread Records and Manchester Women Songwriters to catch all the action! Raising funds for Emmeline’s Pantry – you can donate here!
