music

Kid Katharsis

Bringing on point delivery of his account of Manchester life. Soul infused with elements of hip hop, Katharsis continues to write songs and improve his live performance. I expect big things of this lad this year.

Sobi

She will captivate any room with her pitch perfect vocals. Humble and shy outwardly but Sobi has all the wow factor.  She released her first EP, Creatures in My Mind, last year. A must see.

Mento B (AKA Calypso George)

A Moss Side legend and calypso don. Charming, cheeky and everything in between.

poetry

Alex Webb

A key member of M20 Collective and thoughtful writer. Check out his piece God is Dead on our site.

Call-out: band wanted!

Any bands, singers, solo artists etc. out there fancy playing a gig at Manchester’s Victoria Baths this October? The MAVA Screening will be a film and interactive media exhibition held to celebrate the amazing work of the 2014 Manchester University’s Visual Anthropology Masters students…

 

Call out for Musicians:

The graduating visual anthropology masters students from Manchester University are hosting a screening event of their final film and sensory media exhibitions at Victoria Baths the weekend of 17-19th Oct. We are looking for a suitable musician or band to play on our opening night on Friday 17th. This would be background music whilst our guests enter the event, and after the opening speeches to accompany people’s browsing of the exhibition. We are working with a very tight budget – we could offer a modest fee in addition to advertising (logo/website) for you or your band in on our programme and website (to be launched next week). For further details or to send us a demo of your work contact Lucy at mavascreening2014@gmail.com

For The Young, Talented and Unsigned

Alex Rigg tells us exactly why its so important to support the hard work and talent of Manchester’s young local musicians…

Music has the power to run society. As well as all of the more famous hits and celebrities, there are also unsigned acts featuring powerful talent that can send messages to society’s ears. Music is strong, but stronger to those who choose to use it with determination and talent. Bands and solo performers are key to how everybody behaves on Earth. Musical chimes of beauty can be created, but by all kinds of people. Unsigned bands can be inspirational and bold, bringing the best out of audience members.

Manchester is fortunate for the large amount of local talent that gets to be experienced in venues across the North West – but are you seeing them? There is so much people are missing that is right beneath their noses. The sensation of live music is so great, for both the performers and the fans. Young talent is needed to keep the world informed on the passion and beauty of musical sound. Whether it is acoustic or rock or a DJ, all of the sounds successfully open up emotions, both happy and sad.

From an audience perspective, you can build up with countless emotions at the same moment. It makes you think and wonder, while making you enjoy such an amazing time. Gigs with unsigned bands are not a form of wasting time, but bringing something extraordinary into your life that you can be first to witness. The vibes of success will ring into your ears where magical words whisper to you.

Great melodies can be transformed to passionate tunes for all ears within Manchester. Performances in pubs, nightclubs or stages all give out the same message. The message of life.
