Y.O.U.N.G are a rock/rap band based in Manchester, who initially formed in 2017. They consist of singer Chez Davis, rapper Benjamin James, guitarist Jamie Skehan, bassist Tom Whitehead and drummer Graeme Smith

Y.O.U.N.G’s sound is a true mashup of  influences drawn from the core songwriting members differing musical  backgrounds. Ben, the band’s rapper and keyboard player draws on  influences from OutKast, G eazy and Loyle Carner through to Linkin Park.  He brings his own energetic style of rap and vocal hooks to the  songwriting, as well as adding FX textures and synths to the Y.O.U.N.G  sonics. He has had previous releases as an individual on Universal  records (AATW) and has featured on two number one compilation albums.  When not recording or playing live with the band, Ben plays hype-man for  the band’s drummer DJ Yetti at dance events at Manchester’s Warehouse  Project.

George Fell

 With his unique fingerpicking guitar technique combining sweet, rapid  melodic runs with driving locomotive rhythm, George Fell has been  mesmerizing UK audiences with his  instrumentals and arrangements for almost a decade. Originally  developing his technique from early Blues and Country recordings, Fell  has extensively explored the capacity of the guitar as a solo  instrument. His versatility as a guitarist has lead to a colourful back  catalogue of collaborations, including numerous performances with Bez  (Happy Mondays), making guest appearances on Manchester Hip Hop mixtapes  and recently touring with DJ Yoda as part of his collaborative album  project “Breakfast of Champions”, which was play-listed on 6music and  performed at major UK venues and festivals.  Fell’s debut solo EP  “George Fell-From Grace” was launched on 22nd May 2016. His solo  performances display a vividly refreshing approach to the guitar and  leaves audiences enthralled and exhilarated.  

The Lilacs

 4 piece INDIE/POP band from the North West of England with influences such as  The Courteeners, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Artic Monkeys. 

Cobain Jones

 18 year old multi-instrumentalist from Manchester
