Mann Friday – Featured Band On 365 Radio Network
Originally hailing from Zimbabwe but now based in London, Mann Friday have emerged as a force revered for producing an emotionally charged, melodic and captivating sound.
Mann Friday music has also been noted for its provoking lyrical technique.
Extremely ambitious, Mann Friday have gained a loyal fan base from the London gig-circuit and have also released a riveting current independent album, ‘Blue Sky Science’.
The Mann Friday appreciation is a beast that continues to grow worldwide and things are all a-go!
Having ‘Gone Fishing’ in the Summer of 2007, the Menn are currently working on their follow up album to ‘Blue Sky Science’ called ‘Waiting for the Flash’, so get those taste buds ready.
Their live performances, predominantly rock and emotive lyrics also lead to an award winning featured appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. They have gone on to headline various famous London venues such as The Borderline, Bull & Gate, Halfmoon Putney (sold out five times in a row so far), Camden Barfly (broken record), the Clapham Grand &the Marquee Club. The band was also invited to perform the topically controversial rock-show at the prestigious Riverside Studios in Hammersmith for a prime ten-day summer run.
Their ability to produce sounds ranging from big melodic rock to acoustic sets, plus being able to pen tunes gently mixed with African rhythms right through to smooth Electronica has also caught the eye of the media. A sample of their delicately crafted electronic track ‘Counting Down’ was used on Sky News’ Year in Review.
