Issue:- SATURDAY 4 July 2015

...continued.... Fresh from being nominated as one of the top 3 bands of Liverpool Sound City 2015, Oranj Son are described as smart, hip and cool. Their sound is a mixture of gritty Northern Fall style grooves laced with great melodies. Singer, songwriter, rapper and producer, Merki Waters has supported the likes of American rap star The Game and US rap duo, Method Man and Redman and recently lit up the Africa Oye festival. 5 piece band Cavalry‘s dramatic brand of alt folk marries classic and contemporary influence from Paul Simon to The National; Fleetwood Mac to Villagers and The Beatles to Bon Iver.

The Ambition brings raw energy, great beats and guitars and guaranteed excitement to the stage. They already have a huge following. Ego are a 5 piece girl group developed in Liverpool with help from Chelcee Grimes and Ciaron Bell, with a large social media following and great support from their home town the girls are now on the major label radar, simply outstanding pop songs with full energy performances. Tipped by some of the City's greatest writers and with Elbow's Guy Garvey as a huge fan, Paul Holden's pure melodies and great lyrical hooks prove him to be of Liverpool's finest undiscovered singer/songwriters.

Satin Beige steps into the spotlight with her unique blend of sultry cello-led R ‘n' B and soul, and is another hotly tipped new solo female songstress. Shamanarchy's 1st single is due out this August after Steve Levine snapped them up to his label.

The 4 piece band are a fusion of punk principles, blend of surf beats, waves of rock and hints of psychedelia. Cool beats from cool brothers Jacob and Charlie Bell, Phaedra simmer with their underground beats, if you like Beck, the XX or Temper trap you're going to love this band.

From the foaming and frothing seas of musicality emerges a lyrical and melodic individual by the name of Blue Saint, a man with a spirit that seems to encapsulate the elaborate but heartfelt signatures of music.

The Floormen are a hotly tipped psychedelic groove driven 3 piece from Liverpool. Fresh from his debut album launch which hit No.1 in the Radio Caroline charts, Gary Edward Jones typifies the growing mood in Liverpool of acts who want to prove that the City and its surrounding areas are the true musical heartbeat of the UK. A cocktail of indie rock, psychedelic blues and Merseybeat influences makes The Holograms are a force to be reckoned with on the circuit having broken through at last year's World Merit Day.

Shamona, winners of the Out On Stage talent competition, will also perform. Out On Stage is organised by The Michael Causer Foundation, and a slot as part of the Liverpool Loves New Music programme is part of the prize. Shamona are a 3 piece band from Liverpool who have received great acclaim from many of Liverpool's finest musicians.

Liverpool Loves is the brainchild of City Centre  based events company Orb CIC, who created Liverpool Pride 2010 and is co-creator of the Brazilica Festival.

Liverpool Loves will showcase the very best in grass roots business and creative talent is being supported by the City's Mayor Joe Anderson.

The festival has number of key commitments which are at the forefront of every stage of planning. These include employing locally; contracting local businesses to deliver the event; generating a significant economic impact for Liverpool City Region's visitor economy; and that all profits will be reinvested into an entrepreneur fund to support aspiring local business people to set up in business.

Liverpool Loves starts on Thursday, 6 August 2015, with Liverpool Loves Business and continues on Friday, 7 August with Liverpool Loves Ireland, culminating in Festival Day, on Saturday, 8 August 2015. 

Exhibitor packages and sponsorship opportunities are also available.
