Liam Frost

Having played every den in Manchester over the past couple of years, 22 year old Mancunian Liam Frost released his debut EP, She Painted Pictures, in February 2006 on Lavolta Records. Liam made his live debut at 15 years of (under) age, reeling off fake dates of birth to perform at the infamous Akoustic Anarchy nights at the Star & Garter. After a few years singing in 'shouty punk bands around Manchester', Liam went solo in 2003 at the ripe old age of 20. Shouty punk's loss is charming, eccentric, acoustic pop's gain as the man who has also been described by Guy Garvey as "the UK's answer to Bright Eyes" started to write prolifically over the following two years. ...show more

Having played every den in Manchester over the past couple of years, 22 year old Mancunian Liam Frost released his debut EP, She Painted Pictures, in February 2006 on Lavolta Records. Liam made his live debut at 15 years of (under) age, reeling off fake dates of birth to perform at the infamous Akoustic Anarchy nights at the Star & Garter. After a few years singing in 'shouty punk bands around Manchester', Liam went solo in 2003 at the ripe old age of 20. Shouty punk's loss is charming, eccentric, acoustic pop's gain as the man who has also been described by Guy Garvey as "the UK's answer to Bright Eyes" started to write prolifically over the following two years.

Building a devoted fanbase in Manchester and wowing crowds nationwide supporting fellow troubadour Stephen Fretwell, Liam has also shared a stage with Nine Black Alps, Willy Mason, Badly Drawn Boy and Kinks legend Ray Davies. It's been a busy year so far for Liam and his band The Slowdown Family. They spent the early part of 2006 locked away in a north London studio with Coldplay producer Danton Supple. The end result was their debut album 'Show Me How The Spectres Dance' which is due for release in the autumn, preceded by new single 'The City Is At Standstill'.

They completed their first headline tour of the UK in May to rave reviews and released first single proper, 'The Mourners of St Paul's', in June. (Source official bio from liamfrost.co.uk). ...show less
