Cityscape Presents

A very belated Happy New Year! I thought is appropriate that the first post of the new year features a whole load of new music. Cityscape Presents returns once again to the Octagon next month (Saturday 7 Feb) with some bright, shiny, new musicians. Well new to the Octagon anyway.
First up is Micky P Kerr. Here's the skinny...

Five things your should know

1. Micky is friends with The Pigeon Detectives.
2. Apparently he is a legend in his home town of Leeds.
3. He has supported such names as Reverend & The Makers, Girls Aloud, The Ordinary Boys, and Kate Nash.
4. Feb 07 'Jet2' TV ad hits the airwaves featuring Micky's track Dreamers Club.
5. He has played for Huw Stephens’ famous ‘Introducing Christmas Party’ show (from Maida Vale) which was broadcast on BBC Radio 1 on 18th Dec 08

Not only have his singles garnered huge support from a host of the most influential DJs around, including Huw Stephens, Colin Murray, Rob da Bank, Steve Lamacq and Lauren Laverne, the press seem to ahve a lot of nice things to say about him.
Here's what the press are saying:

‘Absolutely brilliant!’ - Rob Da Bank, Radio 1
‘Very, very good - an Indie Ronnie Lane!’ - Gideon Coe, BBC 6 Music
A catchy Christmas single which is already proving a YouTube hit!’ - The Telegraph
‘Amazing!’ - Jim Gellatly , Xfm/BBC Scotland

If the above isn't proof enough you ought to give him a go, then you can hear him via his MySpace page or watch a video for this timely ditty Credit Crunch Christmas below

Ably supporting Micky will be the delights of Andrea Glass, who describes her sound as Americana soaked in Bolton rain....if you don't know what that sounds like then have a listen here. She might hail from Bolton but her debut album was recorded in arguably her spiritual home – Nashville,Tennessee.

Completing the line-up is 17-year-old singer-songwriter Alex Hulme whose unique acoustic sound is full of sweet melodies and intricate guitar work. Think Nick Drake-style guitar with more commercial vocal melodies reminiscent of the likes of Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly. You can hear him here. Promises to be a fun night.
