Announcing: Streamed shows from Mali Hayes, Werkha x Contours, Yemi Bolatiwa + Secret Night Gang

Live-ish from fivefourstudios

While live music has been on pause, we’ve been busy working with a cohort of emerging artists from Manchester, recording full live sets over at fivefourstudios, Salford. These artists, who feature on the ‘2020’ compilation (available now via Band on the Wall Recordings) represent the future sound of Manchester – an outstanding collection of musicians whose work spans neo-soul, jazz, afro-electronic and more.

Weekly starting 7pm Friday 9th April we’ll be presenting full sets from each artist, broadcast ‘as-live’ for you to watch along, so make sure you set your alarms to tune in on time!

Each week will feature a different artist, and we’ll be announcing the first gig on Tuesday, so check back then to find out who you’ll be watching.

Live-ish streams are free to watch, but these are extremely difficult times for independent artists. On every stream you’ll see a donations box where you can give as much or as little as you wish to help support the musicians.

100% of all proceeds go to the artists.
