Angus Munro is a multi-faceted vocalist with a four-octave range that can break glass and suitcases full of piano-soaked memories.
London-born and Scotland-bred, his 2014 EP Shooting First received international acclaim for its 60s nostalgic sound and vocal gymnastics that saw Angus tour North America and Eastern-Europe.
2017 saw the release of Mirror Man — a deeply personal account of the loss of his father, subsequent breakdown and triumphant recovery — armed to the teeth with a 6-piece indie band, brass section and heavenly backing singers.
Angus has toured with a wide range of artists from Scott Bradlees Postmodern Jukebox, Scouting For Girls to The Hoosiers and Tom Jones; all of whom have been weirded out by him.
Cutting a strange figure in the current Scottish music scene, Angus is workshopping his newest funk-influenced songs with vim, vigour and a tenacity that can only be seen to believed.
KAZE are a vibrant, future-facing band based in Manchester. Graham McCusker, from Paisley and Amy Webber from Kent, met while studying opera at the Royal Northern College of Music in 2012. They started writing songs while Graham was undergoing chemotherapy for Leukaemia in 2016 and as soon as he finished treatment, they recorded and released their first EP in 2017. Amy writes the lyrics and is the lead singer while Graham writes the music, plays keys and cracks bad jokes. They decided on the name KAZE, because it means wind in Japanese well let you decide why
KAZE have been supported by BBC Introducing and have secured airplay on BBC 6Music, BBC Radio Scotland (Live session & Single of the Week), BBC Radio Manchester, BBC Radio Oxford, and Amazing Radio. KAZE have been selected on numerous playlists and as Artist of the week for Richer Unsigned. Their one-take music video for their first single 'Pinned On You' was made Video of the Month by OurStage for 2 months in succession.
Acoustic Folk trio with eerie harmonies
Aonghas and Chloe first met at an open mic night that they would go on to host. Since then, they have refined their sound through weeks of countless acoustic covers and untested originals. Jack then came into the fold after regularly jamming alongside the hosts. Northern Central was thus formed, with a focus on pulling on the heartstrings of punters with eeries harmonies and a blend of three multi-instrumentalists.
Influences include traditional folk, heavier punk bands and the complete collection of Mozart piano sonatas.
