Biography

The Slow Show are a recently formed Manchester based band with a dynamic, warm, beautiful organic sound that has many references to American alt folk rock but with a distinctive Northern English touch.

Their critically acclaimed debut EP Midnight Waltz displays their carefully crafted musicianship and lush melodic songwriting. The diverse instrumentation, in particular the use of a colliery type brass band sound, adds an extra dimension to their music.

Drawing on a diverse range of musical inspiration you can hear influences from classic artists like Neil Young. Tom Waits & Bob Dylan echoing through out their music.

The Slow Show have quickly built an excellent reputation for their live shows where they are often joined by their brass section and the occasional extra vocalist.

Even at this early stage of the band’s existence they have attracted enough attention to be asked by the BBC to perform at their Radio 2 In Session show supporting Elbow at Manchester Cathedral.

    I guess I have a first contender for AOTY. Amazing sound somewhere in between The National, Elbow, Augustines and Tom Waits. Instant love
