The Deep Blue

Manchester's hottest new band, The Deep Blue are quietly outspoken with an air of rebelliousness, punk attitudes fused with hypnotically beautiful harmonies and intertwined instrumentations. Their lyrics range from small, detailed vignettes and musings to anthemic calls to arms, with strong elements of storytelling, always deeply personal and reflective.


Gnoss

Gnoss’ signature sound is a rich tapestry of acoustic layers; outstanding musicianship, deep traditional roots and contemporary compositional flair combine to create songs and tunes brimming with character. Formed by the award-winning Orkney duo of fiddler/mandolinist Graham Rorie and singer-guitarist Aidan Moodie – with Connor Sinclair (flute/whistles) and Craig Baxter (bodhran/stomp) – the Glasgow-based quartet combine livewire instrumental sets with richly stirring song arrangement.
