We shall be looking toward securing two exclusively new live-music acts to complete this lineup. Stay tuned as we confirm over the next two months.
The River Versus - For a mesmerising blend of progressive and neoclassical rock look no further than Manchester three-piece The River Versus, which is preparing to release its first album and tie-in comic; Movement I . In Search of the MiSinG.' Comprised of Alec Davis (vocals/keys), Jim Trippier (bass/vocals) and Aaron Stanton (drums/vocals), their music takes you on an adventure through a post-apocalyptic world, seamlessly mixing complex prog structures with hooky, visceral tunes. With influences including Biffy Clyro, The Cat Empire, Rachmaninoff and Coheed and Cambria with a love of all things geek, from comics to computer games, The River Versus produces and insatiable combo of blistering hooks and thoughtful vocals.
Zonic (Ziggy Newman) - Ziggy Newman (Better known in the music world as Zonic) was born in 1989 in Cambridgeshire. She began her musical career at a very early age writing songs to the tunes of retro Sega Megadrive games. Since then she has gone on to study music at City University London as well as having vocal training from the Guildhall School Of Music and Drama. Her music specializes in that of ambient, electronica based pop and dance with influences such as Lady GaGa, Madonna, Diane Arkenstone, T.a.t.u and Depeche Mode. http://www.zonicmusic.com
