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