Cinnamon Girl is delighted to announce a one off Manchester show with Turrentine Jones in support of their debut album 'Our Days'. Support on the night comes from the superb Black Lights and Jim Adama.
Turrentine Jones are an English rock band formed in Manchester in July 2010. The band have been receiving recognition in the UK and also in America. 2013 proved a banner year for the trio, linking a publishing deal with renowned London-based record label Rough Trade, home to The Strokes,Jarvis Cocker, Antony and The Johnsons etc. and went on to perform on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury music festival. The band have featured in the Guardian and Telegraph, and were recently playlisted for the half-time show at Old Trafford football stadium.
“The band's early music was an upbeat blend of Southern rock and blues influences, but has
gradually expanded and now often falls under the umbrella of indie rock and roll.” -
Manchester’s Black Lights are a band that delivers deftly beautiful songs; ones to make the heart soar. Jamie McCool (vocals), Jack O Connor (guitar), Howard Eastwood (piano) and Josh Hussey (drums) are already creating a stir around their home city. Having met at college, Jamie and Howard wrote their first song together, 'In My Soul' in 2010. The addition of Jack and Josh completed the chemistry and last year’s EP, ‘In The Dark’, stands out as a wonderfully crafted debut for a band not yet in their twenties.
This Manchester four-piece has created a record of pure beauty and, without the usual hype of such new comers, have already forged a live reputation that has seen sell out shows and rapturous reviews. There is little doubt this is a band at the beginning of an exceptional journey; enjoy them whilst they are still ours.
"With unmistakably Mancunian tones riding gleefully over bluegrass slides, bends and voodoo backing vocals, he’s managed to make a tried-and-tested formula entirely his own"
Drowned In Sound
"Jim Adama is a bluesman for the 21st century"
Louder Than War
"This is everything the blues should be, and everything a lot of people playing "blues" aren't these day. His bare bones style and innate sense of the perfect riff - the dirty distorting bass string rhythms, the bends on the high notes and the loosely picked chords - echo those legends of the pre rock'n'roll era"
