San Eco + SNO + Marco Woolf + Hannah Ross on Friday 9th February 2018
During the recording of Morris Cowan’s ‘Six Degrees’ album, and Tom Edney’s ‘The Manchester Underground EP’, the two became aware of each other’s music; respectively listening in through a wall between neighbouring studios. An offer of a session was tabled from Cowan, and a few years on, and many a recording session later, they are releasing their debut album, the eponymously titled LP, ‘San Eco’.

Marco Woolf (Solo Acoustic)
A delicate soul. A singer songwriter who has spent the better part of two years working on an EP that he is finally ready to share. A little insane, wholly passionate.
Nongi Oliphant has been a firm fixture on the Manchester scene for the past year, keeping dancefloors around the city moving and grooving. She features on Reform Radio monthly, playing a mix of South African, R&B, soul and disco music. Her background as a collector means that you’ll find few DJs more knowledgeable about their records than Nongi. Her rise in popularity around Manchester has been swift, in no part due to her approachable nature and penchant for picking the perfect tune for each moment. With her soulful sounds gracing bars, radio stations, clubs and even food fairs around the city, SNO has quickly become one of the most recognisable DJs on the circuit, her enthusiasm for her music as infectious as her personality.
Hannah’s voice bears traces of a lifetime spent listening to R’n’B and Soul music, whilst nodding to more recent influences such as King Krule, James Blake and Mac Demarco.
Mary Anne Hobbs selected ‘Fearing’ from her debut EP, what are the natural forms? for her 6 Music Recommends show, and then as the Sunriser track for her 6 Music weekend show. In her own words: ‘in the very first conversation I ever had with her, she made me think more carefully about how people with disabilities can enjoy going to live gigs, and be properly provided for, and I’ll always thank her for that [...] well, I bought it immediately and among the four stunning tracks is our Sunriser this weekend, it’s my favourite and it’s called ‘Fearing’.
