The Best of Manchester's Unsigned.

Recently Manchester has been under fire from music’s biggest judge and fellow Mancunian, Mr Noel Gallagher. Gallagher claims Manchester isn’t what it used to be, and I’m here to prove to him that he is wrong. MCR is home to some of the most influential bands to date, Oasis, Joy Division, The Courteeners, The Smiths… the list continues, and in 2015 the city is still overrun by its passion for music.

Similar to The Kooks and One Night Only, the rhythmic band can offer you an entertaining and enjoyable set. With the frontman’s husky voice and alternative indie rhythm, Fluidity reminds us that Manchester’s music scene is still very much alive, thriving and extremely Northern.

Shelbi is an unsigned singer/songwriter from Leeds and relocated to Manchester gracing the north of England with her gentle and soft vocals.

Acoustic and Folk enthusiast, Shelbi is currently gigging around Manchester and getting her much-deserved and entirely original vocals heard.
Shelbi’s voice cannot be compared to anyone currently in the UK charts, effortless and mesmerising, I expect huge things for this Manchester gem.

Shelbi’s music reminds Mancunians to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life and to comfortably enjoy a completely unique, refreshing and graceful sound.

The band are extremely unique, with a taste of rock, The Fevers take you right back to 1980’s Sci-Fi scene worthy of many modern film soundtracks.
