Band on the Wall presents Free Jazz – a free-entry event showcasing some of the most exciting new artists pushing genre boundaries, playing jazz, electronic, hip-hop, funk, soul and experimental sounds. Sign up for free entry and discover new music from the likes of Hunrosa, Artephis, Ova and Andchuck.
Sam Vicary A.K.A ‘Hunrosa’ (to dream) is an electronic music producer based in Manchester, UK. He is principally a bassist and currently a member of ‘The Cinematic Orchestra’ (Ninja Tune), ‘Paper Tiger’ (Wah Wah 45’s) and ‘The Dominic J Marshall Trio’ (Challenge Records). As well as also performing with artists such as Manu Delago, Imogen Heap, Matthew Halsall, Anil Sebastian and Stuart Macallum.
Contemporary jazz-rock quintet based in Manchester, UK, Artephis comprises some of the North’s most creatively diverse young musicians, who met at the Royal Northern College of Music. Their debut album, ALL CHANGE NO CHANGE, was released in June 2017 with an accompanying UK tour and aired on Radio 2 by Jamie Cullum, who chose ‘Feroz’ as his BBC Introducing highlight of the year.
Blending atmospheric lo-fi synthesisers with rumbling bass lines, deep kicks and minimalist production, Ova provides the perfect backdrop for Lizzie Vince’s hushed and fragile vocal melodies.
Exciting, Dynamic and Contemporary jazz trio drawing influences from the likes of Esbjorn Svensson trio, Impossible Gentlemen and Radiohead.
