An Evening For Anthony – artist focus!

We can’t wait for our gig on Saturday in aid of The Anthony Nolan Foundation alongside Manchester Women Songwriters!

Here’s a little post detailing each of the artists we’re going to have performing! It’s a stellar lineup if we say so ourselves!

First up, we have Run Remedy – a lovely songwriter whose been on the Manchester scene for a while now, she’s collaborated with many many musicians on the scene, accompanying people on violin, and guitar and vocals! Definitely one to keep an eye on. Her songs are wonderful! Check them out on Bandcamp here!

Nat Dempsey has been playing many of our gigs, especially over lockdown, and he always delivers a lovely set! We’ve had him featured on our Just The Crust segment for his new track ‘Last Call‘ which only highlights his songwriting ability – only a young lad, but with so much talent – go and check him out on Spotify.

Toria Wooff is one of our favourite people in the entire world – such a talented individual!! An absolute joy to catch live, with fantastic songwriting talent and beautiful delivery on each and every part of her songs. Her EP ‘Badlands‘ released last year was incredible (shout out to Sloe Flower Studio) and is definitely worth checking out! Go and drop her a follow on Spotify to keep up with any new music! (We highly recommend her cover of Alice Cooper’s Poison.)

Dora Noszkay is a regular Bread performer nowadays! We’ve had her perform for us many times, most notably at our Breadstock 2020 event, where she played us a blinder of a set ๐Ÿ˜Š her new single ‘Reset‘ was our Just The Crust feature the other week, a fantastic tune definitely worth listening to! Go and have a listen her over on Spotify – we can’t wait to see what she brings to the table this Saturday!

Laura Farrow is a regular on the Manchester scene, putting on a weekly open mic over at Lions Den Bar Deansgate, and performing across the city and with her band. We caught her EP launch the other year at Jimmys where she absolutely dazzled the audience with the full band set up and fantastic musicianship! We also featured her music on our Grain Radio segment – you can find her music over on Spotify!

Our final artist is our very own michael webster – most of you who are familiar with us will know of michael very well, so we don’t need to explain too much of his music here! His previous single ‘ibis hotel / collision course‘ was released in June, with great reviews coming out about it – and there’s a new single ‘linger, still / single malt‘ out on the 8th August! Go and check him out on Bandcamp and Spotify.

That’s all the artists we’ve got performing this Saturday! Big shout out to Manchester Women Songwriters for helping us organise another fantastic gig in aid of a very worthy cause. You’ll be able to find all of the livestreams on our Facebook page, or in our ‘Bread Social’ Facebook group! Definitely one to catch. See you guys on Sat from 7pm!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 60โ€™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 ‘CAFร‰’ 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 donโ€™t think we need to talk too much about our next artist. Michael runs the label and hosts all of our gigs โ€“ inspired by artists such as Courtney Barnett, Kate Bush, Bob Dylan, Neil Young โ€“ and everyone on the scene too! Check out his music onย Spotifyย orย 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!
