8pm EARLY SET – Dan Patrick

Dan’s a 22-year-old singer-songwriter currently living in London. Dan has been playing music from a very young age, having been inspired by a wealth of Irish singer-songwriters including Damien Rice, Foy Vance, Glen Hansard, and Van Morrison. Dan also draws inspiration from artists across the Atlantic, citing Howlin’ Wolf, Mahalia Jackson, and Bon Iver as important influences on his reflective and emotive sound. His powerful, soulful vocals are an effective tool for delivering thoughtful and provocative lyrics that range from joyous to melancholic.

BEN WILLIAMS


When Ben was 5 he discovered The Beatles in his parents’ music collection and by his early teens he’d picked up his first guitar to follow inspiration from songwriting greats including Paul Simon, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell.
After graduating from Salford University with a degree in Popular music, Ben began busking with his good friend Kristyna Myles. The duo were spotted by The Manchester Evening News who featured them on their front page, and were the winners of a national busking competition on BBC5 Live. Ben can still be found busking on the streets of Manchester from time to time and he maintains that it is the best place to hone new songs – the ever-changing audience gives him the opportunity to repeat and perfect new material throughout the day.
As a guitarist Ben has worked with Grammy award winning producers and has played concerts supporting the likes of Nile Rodgers and Chic, Mick Hucknall, Will Young and Lisa Stansfield. Having worked for years on other peoples’ projects, refining his songwriting craft and supporting artists on tours and at festivals around the world including South By South West Festival, Ben woke up one day and randomly wrote a song by and for himself. The song, Change It, opened the floodgates to writing many more and encouraged him to pursue his solo endeavours as a singer-songwriter. It later featured on his debut album, Who Do You Think You Are? (2015) which received airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Introducing Manchester.
In 2017, Ben released his second album, Put It On Ice, and since then has been busy playing gigs and stripping back his sound to record a new acoustic album titled Minimum of Fuss which is set for release in early 2019.
“AN EXCELLENT GUITARIST AND GREAT TO HAVE AROUND ON A RECORDING SESSION” – KEN NELSON, GRAMMY AWARD WINNING PRODUCER (COLDPLAY, PAULO NUTINI)
“GREAT GUITARIST AND TOP MUSICIAN” – STEVE WHITE, DRUMMER AND PRODUCER (PAUL WELLER, STYLE COUNCIL, OASIS)
