This weeks band of the week on Tameside Radio's Local Music Spotlight feature is Stanleys.
Named Stanleys due to the fact they met and formed at Wigan's Winstanley College, the four piece have already cemented themselves as one of the most talked about up and coming bands on the North West music scene.
After forming in 2017, the four piece, consisting of Tom Concannon on vocals, Jake Dorsman on guitar, Harry Ivory on bass, and Rob Hilton on drums and backing vocals, have already found themselves playing at festivals such as Kendal Calling and Y-Not, plus many of Manchester's iconic venues such as Manchester Academy, O2 Ritz, and Albert Hall, as well as supporting the likes of The Lathums, Inspiral Carpets, The Lottery Winners, and Jamie Webster on tour dates.
They have also completed succesful UK tours of their own. Influenced by the likes of The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Oasis, The Smiths, Blur, and The Stone Roses, they have a sound which combines all, yet with a unique sound of their own.
All four lads in the band are sought after musicians and singers, and in the next couple of months will be starting another headline UK tour, as well as playing at several festivals including Neighbourhood. They will also be heading out on tour supporting The Sherlocks.
Their songs are catchy and relatable, and tracks such as 'A Better Life', 'Why Would I?', 'Measured In Gold', 'Time Waits For No One' and 'Maybe' are already anthems which they will be playing to fans for many years to come. Stanleys can be found on all of the usual social media sites and streaming platforms, and at stanleysband.co.uk.
You will hear their music played every weekday this week on every show on Tameside Radio between 7am and 7pm. For more information on Stanleys, the Local Music Spotlight feature, and a link to the features official spotify account, visit tamesideradio.com
