Son of William:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwXSQH0HFP8
Son of William are a brand new acoustic duo featuring the vocal talents of Hayley Williams and Ben Williams (no relation) on guitar and vocals. With songs ranging from intimate folk to full throttle rootsy blues, Son of William have already made their mark on Manchesters acoustic scene, despite only performing a handful of gigs. Keep your eyes peeled for their debut EP coming soon!

Neota: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFWvhqbHkek
Neota are an electronic alternative trio who fully formed in 2017 in Manchester, UK. It consists of Hayley Williams (Vocals), Matt Jeffrey (Producer and Instrumentalist) and Rachel Lasham (Kit and Percussion). All who have their own musical ventures in very different music scenes but share the same musical roots. Neota is bass music at it’s core, but quickly combines ambient electronica with rock elements which are covered with powerful and entrancing vocals. They have been in the studio this year recording their first EP which is set to be released early next year.

James Holt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRAHnzPERR0&feature=youtu.be
James Holt is an alt-rock artist from the moors of Bolton and is receiving attention and praise from music industry giants, such as legendary producer Brian Eno, and the listening public alike. With the craftsmanship and energy of his song writing translating effortlessly to his stage performance, and having performed at the UK’s most prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, this is an artist to watch out for in 2018.

Ben P Williams: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAKxMn9U5rc
A Manchester based singer-songwriter who moulds the classic song-writing sound of Paul Simon with the laid back nature of Jack Johnson, Ben Williams is a difficult artist to pigeonhole and is all the better for it. His second album ‘Put It On Ice’ is due for release in February 2017. Completely self-penned and featuring a selection of the finest musicians in Manchester, Williams has delivered a gem of an album. Often quirky, sometimes funny, and occasionally more reflective, the songs demonstrate a fantastic range of approaches and ideas.

Thanks to a busy touring and busking schedule around the UK and Europe, Ben’s song-writing and singing have matured since his debut album, which was described by R2 magazine as ‘guaranteed to bring a smile to your face’, and by Janice Long as ‘so beautiful’. The single ‘Hold Your Fire’ was played on the Dermot O Leary show on BBC Radio 2, and ‘I Can Do That’ received heavy airplay form BBC Introducing in Manchester. BBC Radio 2 also played Ben’s Christmas song ‘Too Cold For Snow’ on Christmas Day.
