  1.  Ink – Kill the Flame – Demo – local band made up of students from Swinton High School.
  2. Open Party– The Standing – Demo – Open party started of as a home studio project between singer Richard Brady and producer Tony Kavanangh, after a year of writing and recorded they formed the band which, in full is, Richard Brady-Vocals , Tony Kavanagh-Guitar, Adam Birch-Bass, Roxx Enroll-Guitar, Daryl Rogowich-Drums. They are now playing gigs in Manchester/Salford and hoping to get on a few local festivals this summer.

  6. Open Party – Emotional Burns – Demo
  7. Lisbon – Empires – Vulnerable Mind – “a 5-piece pop band hailing from Manchester, England. With a penchant for dramatic pop music, the band began with one clear objective – creating high-quality, modern songs with universal appeal.
