Breadstock: Artist Focus β˜€οΈ

here’s a little look at the first batch of artists we’ve got performing for us next week at Breadstock β˜€οΈ

Olivia Browse – her brand new single ‘Sober’ will be out this coming Friday, we managed to feature it on yesterday’s Just The Crust so go and check that out! she’s played many of our gigs and we’re super happy to have her play this one πŸ™‚you can pre-save her new single at this link.

Benjamin Finney – Benjamin is a multi-instrumentalist songwriter based in Manchester who weaves lovely tapestries of music with his intricate guitarwork. He’s a big part of the scene, having performed solo for a while now and also playing alongside Izzie Walsh in her band! Go and check his latest release ‘rabbit / for sarah’ alongside Matt Smedley!

Dora Noszkay – we first found Dora through the release of her single ‘In The Morning’ and we loved the songwriting style of it – you can find it online on Bandcamp and Spotify! We’re looking forward to hearing more from her, we were very lucky to catch a great Joni Mitchell cover on one of her livestreams over the past few weeks!

Jessamine Grace – Jessamine has been involved with many of our gigs for a very long time now and has been at so many open mics and gigs across Manchester over the past few years!! We featured her new single ‘Broken’ as part of our Just The Crust feature a few weeks back – you can find it online on Bandcamp and Spotify! Definitely worth listening to. There’s a video too!! β˜€οΈ

Fordaze – Mike aka Fordaze has been running open mics in Manchester for a while now but we’ve recently got more involved with him since the start of self-isolation – he put out his debut single Like a Sunrise last week and it is unreal! You can find it on Spotify here! His blend of mellow acoustic and electronic components to his music is a lovely fresh breath of air to a scene usually full of acoustic musicians!

indefinite articles – we’ve known indefinite articles for a very long time and we’re super proud to have him performing for us again! Joseph puts on open mics and gigs across the city weekly and is a cornerstone of the local music scene in Manchester. his folk-punk style is instantly recognisable and we love his songs – you can find more on his Bandcamp or on Spotify! πŸ’₯

that just about wraps it up for us on this post, but we’ll be doing another posts featuring even more artists who we’ll have performing for us next Monday 25th May! 🍞
