We’re delighted to helping glowe launch their new album!

Hauntingly beautiful, gritty and uplifting, Manchester-based collective glowe create intense darkness and light with mountain vocals, shimmering strings and smashed up beats. Influenced by sounds from Bjork, Shostakovich, Kraftwerk and the Balkans.

glowe is led by Lis Murphy, vocalist, string player and song-writer. Lis performs with Jane Weaver, featuring on her albums Kosmology and The Fallen Watch-bird.

She has also performed with Amadou & Mariam at Manchester International Festival, supported New Order with Jez Kerr (ACR) on their Scottish tour, in festival line-ups at WOMAD, Boomtown and on BBC Radio 3 and 4 with Manchester Chamber Choir.

‘Delivered with dedication and versatility… glowe made an immediate connection with the audience with their compelling music and on-stage presence’ – Steve Mead, Manchester Jazz Festival

Special guest is Sanja Cin. Sanja Cin’s songs are snapshots in time. Her music naturally embraces influences from music she loves, among them classic pop and folk, as well as music from Brazil to the Balkans. Born in Bosnia and Hercegovina, Sanja grew up in a small Austrian town. After several years spent in Vienna, she landed by surprise in Manchester. Here it is where she recorded her solo EP Bees, together with Manchester-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Alan Keary (alias Shunya), in collaboration with musicians from Austria and Manchester.

Sanja’s music talks about the urgency of life and the ever present resistance towards it, about recognising your own super powers and honouring them by stepping out of the old, over and over again. The songs’ sound is rooted in pop, yet, taking surprising turns at times, playing with structures and melodies, quietly bypassing predefined routes.

As part of the Northern Line Scheme sponsored by Jazz North.
