Jacob & The Dazey Chain bring their “DON’T LOOK AWAY!” Club Tour to Manchester, with special guests Little Strange, Doublethink, Noah Speaks, + Joey Beesley, for a night of pure, unfiltered rock’n’roll. Read about this stacked bill below!

Jacob & The Dazey Chain is the vision of Jacob Reese Thornton, a prolific 21-year-old singer, songwriter, and guitarist who brings a richness and depth to his music that exceeds his years. Jacob & The Dazey Chain is infused with the DNA of early influences like Oasis, The Strokes, Green Day, and R.E.M., resulting in an utterly unique blend of Brit-pop and alternative rock. “Roots Run Deep,” the latest single from the band’s upcoming LP is a soaring and irresistible rock anthem that glimmers with fresh power-pop sheen. “It was one of the first songs I wrote after moving to Nashville,” says Jacob. “It’s a declaration of independence. About chasing your North Star without fear — not rambling down the conventional path someone else imposes”. The track was showcased by Apple Music and VEVO on release day with placements on multiple editorial playlists. A few of Jacob’s early career highlights include being invited and performing at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival in Dallas (2019) and breaking into Amazon’s Top 25, best selling alternative rock releases as an independent artist with his debut EP, “The Sky Is All I Need to Get High”. The EP’s accompanying single and title track entered the Top 20 downloads for all AAA + U.S. Rock Specialty radio stations, as well as receiving an impressive 300,000 streams within the last three months on Spotify. Select tracks on the EP were recorded with Grammy-nominated artist and producer Bill Reynolds of Band of Horses in Nashville, and featured Rami Jaffee of Foo Fighters on B3 and keyboards. The Aquarian Weekly most recently quoted, “Jacob & The Dazey Chain represent Tasteful, Artistic Nostalgia. Young taste-maker Jacob Thornton, the talented and prolific rockstar-on-the rise who has one hand reaching toward the 2020’s and the other holding on tightly to the 1970’s.”

Little Strange:

Emerging from the shadows – as if their Tarantino-esque logo is beamed into the night’s sky – Little Strange’s never-say-die attitude is a true testament of character. Returning in 2022 after a two-year hiatus, the band have quickly made up for lost time, complete with a new line-up and many new songs to boot. Following the releases of ‘Holy Rigmarole’, ‘I Get By’, & ‘Hard Days Hard Times’, the excitement surrounding the group is quickly spreading. Several headline shows across the UK, have earned the band a reputation for their emphatic live sound. Supported by the likes of BBC Radio 1 & Absolute Radio, subsequent airplay has followed from BBC Introducing, XS Manchester and Boogaloo Radio, as well as support from Pretty Green and The Manc. With a busy release schedule decided for 2024, the band are currently promoting their new single, ‘Alright Now’, a stomping Beat record with ferocious energy. Cut alongside, ‘Hard Days Hard Times’, the track is a statement of intent from a group shifting through the gears. Handpicked by Danielle Perry, the band were named Absolute Radio’s ‘Self-Released Artist of the Month’ for February. Unapologetically themselves, the band’s mantra of ‘alt-rock for all’ is a simple statement of inclusivity: if you’re along for the ride, then buckle up. The Strange have arrived. Little Strange are Jamie Thompson (Vocals), Olly Davis (Guitar/Backing Vocals), Jack Clynes (Bass), and Charlie Harris (Drums).
