The Magic Numbers
The Magic Numbers are a UK-based four-piece comprising two pairs of brothers and sisters (Romeo and Michele Stodart, Sean and Angela Gannon) who are known for their unique harmonies, melodic hooks, songwriting craftsmanship and their timeless sound.
The Slow Show
If you can imagine the most warm and organic sound you've ever heard, then imagine that the same sound is a huge worshipper of America's folk alt religion and, at some point, glided across the floor of a Northern cotton mill, then you've got 'The Slow Show' in one. Or, if a little easier, Manchester's most un-Manchester like five piece
Shake Tiger Shake
Described by BBC6 Music as "a Glorious Sound", Shake Tiger Shake are pop magpies who create music that is inspired by the best synths and beats from the 80s, grooves from 70s disco, and twists it all with a contemporary sensibility. If Fleetwood Mac met Prince, [Metronomy], and [Aluna George] at Studio 54, this is what it would sound like.
The Real Tuesday Weld
After a series of low key single and EP releases on British, US and Japanese independent labels our first full-length release When Cupid Meets Psyche (2001) was acclaimed as: “a warm and welcoming arty gypsy knees-up, a psychedelic bossa with the polite reeds of a ’30s dance band crushed by booming hip-hop bass…” (Q Magazine) and was an album of the week in the Sunday Times.
Alongside touring the world, releasing albums with double platinum sellers The Magic Numbers and becoming a mother, Michele has stolen every chance she could get to take her songs into the studio. Written and produced by Michele, with a helping hand from engineer Phil Brown (Talk Talk, Beth Gibbons, Joni Mitchell), ‘Wide-Eyed Crossing’ dishes up a veritable banquet of delicacies on a debut that owes as much to the strum of the acoustic guitar as it does to the richness of the jazz vocal, noted particularly on track 'O Heart of Mine'.
The FB Pocket Orchestra
Takes its listeners back to the hot jazz, blues, ragtime & popular dances of the 1920/30s & earlier. The members originally began playing together in various FB Music & Media Projects and officially began playing as The FB Pocket Orchestra in 2012
