“The next big thing to come out of the UK” BBC 1XTRA

The freshest talent on the RnB scene” Notion Magazine

“The five piece have managed to do things their own way” Clash

“Be on the look out for MiC LOWRY” RWD

MiC LOWRY are quickly establishing themselves as one of the most exciting young RnB groups in the world right now.

Having just announced a string of new dates, the band will be heading out on a UK tour in September 2016. The four-date run will see the guys perform across some of the UK’s major cities, kicking things off in London at The Garage on September 22nd and will run through until September 26th taking in Manchester’s Club Academy.

The young men from Liverpool continue to seduce an incredibly loyal fan base on the regular worldwide - in their first year as a professional outfit, their debut EP ‘The Show’ went straight in at No.1 on the UK iTunes Official RnB Chart and they won the MOBO Unsigned competition – not to mention being nominated for the BET Awards ‘Best International Newcomer’.  Their new single, “Oh Lord”, is out soon and is sure to be even more successful.

Selling out their first UK headline national tour in minutes, MiC LOWRY’s grassroots popularity is undeniable for such a young group; a fact apparent throughout their first summer of festival performances including at Glastonbury on the BBC Introducing stage following a personal invitation by DJ Target.

Over the last 12 months they have taken their talent abroad, with performances in Germany, Cannes, and Amsterdam. Embarking on their second headline tour, this time not only entertaining the United Kingdom, but also travelling further afield to The States.

Tastemakers and industry across both sides of the Atlantic are now picking up on the heat with BEATRWD and Digital Spy adding to the critical acclaim they’re gathering online. With major support by BBC Radio 1 Xtra labelling them ‘the next big thing to come out of the UK’, MiC LOWRY are undeniably one of the most exciting acts coming out of an increasingly vibrant UK scene.

Townsmen is the pop/rock group established by Yorkshire born singer songwriter, Johnny Carr, with Dave Thompson on lead guitar, Joey Conley on drums and Jonny Greenwood on bass and has been gigging around the north of England for the best part of 2016. 

 

Appearances at 3 festivals (and more in the pipeline), have seen Townsmen rocking audiences with their brilliant mix of original songs and covers of some of the best pop/rock bands.

 

With 3 singles already released and more in recording, the band hopes to have a full album release in early 2017.

 

Joining Townsmen for the gig is acoustic singer-songwriter, Chris Birdsall, from Macclesfield, who's album 13 Songs (which is just that!) is now available.

 

This promises to be a night of superb music & dancing.

BLOSSOMS ANNOUNCE AUTUMN HEADLINE UK TOUR  

 

BAND’S SELF TITLED DEBUT ALBUM IS RELEASED ON AUGUST 5

 

“Massive riffs and surging singable choruses that’ll make you feel 10ft tall.” - NME

 

“The Stockport band’s cathartic sing-alongs hark back to the region’s pop greats.” The Guardian

 

“Mancunian pop perfection” Shortlist

 

“Minor key moodiness with the kind of bravado not seen since the glory days of The Stone Roses and The La’s” The Times

 

Following the release of their highly-anticipated debut album, out August 5th, Blossoms will embark on a headline UK tour, taking in 11 venues across the country including London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town and The Academy in Manchester.

 

Ahead of the tour, Blossoms will perform a hometown show at the Stockport Plaza at midnight on August 5th (Thursday night!). The band also recently announced two special album launch shows at Manchester’s Gorilla, one of which will be a matinee performance, on Sunday August 7th – the shows sold out in just 3 minutes. 

 

The forthcoming self-titled album was recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios, produced by the band’s sonic mentor, The Coral’s James Skelly and Rich Turvey. The pair produced early EPs Blown Rose and Charlemagne (No 1 in iTunes Alternative Chart as well Christmas No 1 in the UK Vinyl Chart), their first release of 2016 - the dark future-glam of At Most A Kiss (No.1 in the iTunes chart) and current radio hit ‘Getaway’ (playlisted across Radio 1, Radio 2, 6 Music, Radio X and Absolute).  “James has been really important for us,” says Ogden. “He can listen to one of our songs and instinctively know what bits to push forward. He’s got an amazing ear for a good pop melody. He just brings out our best, and makes it a little bit weird in the mix as only he can. Being fans of The Coral anyway, having him produce our debut album is a perfect marriage.”

 

Taken from the debut album, ‘My Favourite Room’ is now available as a download for anyone who pre-orders the album. Watch the band perform an acoustic version of the song at The Great Escape earlier this year here

 

Blossoms are currently performing at festivals across Europe and have already appeared at Glastonbury, Field Day, Bilbao BBK, Rock Werchter, The Great Escape, T in the Park, Parklife and Isle of Wight Festival. The band will also be appearing at Reading and Leeds, Kendal Calling, Festival No.6 and more.
