Manchester based Tay Temple is an alternative folk-rock band, who actively promote self-confidence and self-belief to empower others. Tay is no stranger when it comes to taboo subjects, her second single ‘Ladybird’ depicts how a women’s value is determined by the cruel beauty standards within society. Tay has an emotional, dynamic, yet a powerful voice, which can be heard in every song. Partnered with the band, who bring each song to life with their vibrant instrumentation, Tay’s lyrics are fuelled by her personal struggles, experience of relationships and social consciousness.
Frankie Jobling is a Neo-Soul singer and songwriter, and a founding member of the NEWISM collective (north East Women In Soul Music). After studying music in Manchester, she returned to her native Newcastle and continued honing her sound and unique voice. Influenced by old school soul and jazz titans such as Aretha Franklin and Billie Holiday, Frankie’s sultry R’n’B tones stay true to those roots whilst bringing them into a more contemporary world. Off the back of the successes of her first two singles she has quickly proven herself as an inimitable artist, receiving airplay on BBC Introducing Newcastle and Teeside and performing to sold out audiences. With her debut headliner selling out in one week, Frankie Jobling, “a northern Jorja Smith” with a “liquid gold” voice, is definitely an emerging talent to keep an eye on.
Female fronted, PAVÉ are a A Manchester-based 6-piece alt-rock band.
