Gideon Conn [+]

Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

Gideon Conn completed an art degree in Manchester where he quickly established a reputation for playing the piano in the main gallery and using the whole building as his studio space for outlandish sculptures.

The band formed around Gideon in 2005, and have gone from strength to strength. They have wowed at major festivals and toured with some fantastic artists including Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip6 Day Riot and Jason Mraz. They released a catchy, hip hop/indie crossover single called I Want You Around which was well received by radio – playlisted on Xfm and awarded breakfast single of the week on BBC 6 music as well being championed by Huw Stevens and Rob da Bank on Radio 1.

Gideon’s debut album entitled New Bop Sounds was released in August 2010 and he has a new album due this May with some great new tunes and videos to boot.
