ESKA: Meet The Artists

We’re thrilled to announce the 14 incredible artists selected by ESKA to collaborate during an exciting four-day residency “Are You Here?”. Brand new music and visuals will be showcased at Band on the Wall on Sunday 28 May in a special one-off event.

Please note this is now a free event but tickets MUST be pre-booked as we will not be selling walk-up tickets due to increased security. You can register for your free tickets here.

We’ll be collecting donations for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund on the night.

The talented group have amongst them a soul-pop singer/ songwriter who has been tipped as one to watch by BBC Introducing and MOBO awards, a jazz vocalist / composer who was part of Jon Hendricks’ Miles Ahead premiere in New York and London, and a singer / songwriter whose collaborators include Clean Bandit and Mercury-Prize nominated producer Chris Bond. Find out more about all our artists below…

Adrian Jackson, founder and artistic director of award-winning theatre company Cardboard Citizens, will join ESKA as associate director. Together ESKA and Adrian will be challenging the emerging artists, working across art forms, to create socially conscious music in response to the turbulent political landscape.

The residency is the eighth in Brighter Sound’s Artistic Directors Series which aims to support artists in all stages of their careers, giving them the time and space to experiment.

ESKA – “Are You Here?” is on Sunday 28 May, 7.30pm at Band on the Wall, Manchester. 

Book free tickets here.
