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 at 7pm Fridays, we present full sets from a different artist, broadcast ‘as-live’ for you to watch along. This week we present Secret Night Gang.
Founding members of Secret Night Gang, Callum Connell & Kemani Anderson have shared a love of writing music together since they were 14-year-old school friends. Hooking up with bassist Stuart Whitehead in 2018, a summer of endless late nights was spent combining their shared vision, and writing their debut album.
2021 has already seen hugely positive movements for Secret Night Gang, having just signed to Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings, the BBC 6 Music DJ, founder of Worldwide FM and celebrator of soulful sounds from across the globe. Listen to SNG’s latest single ‘The Sun’ for a taste of what to expect.
Live-ish streams are free to watch, but these are extremely difficult times for independent artists. You’ll see a donations box at the bottom of this page where you can give as much or as little as you wish to help support the musicians.
100% of all proceeds go to the artist.
