NO SLOWDOWN FOR FROST
By JA22 December 2005

“The most talented young songwriter Manchester has produced for years” – Guy Garvey, Elbow

“Frost’s richly thick Northern tone and escapist lyrics are mesmerising. Bittersweet regret has never seemed so inviting.” - NME

Having played every den in Manchester over the past couple of years, 22 year old Mancunian Liam Frost will release his debut EP – She Painted Pictures - on February 6th on Lavolta Records. Liam made his live debut at 15 years of (under) age, reeling off fake dates of birth to perform at the infamous Akoustik Anarkhy nights at the Star & Garter. After a few years singing in ‘shouty punk bands around Manchester’, Liam went solo in 2003 at the ripe old age of 20.

Shouty punk’s loss is charming, eccentric, acoustic pop’s gain as the man who has also been described by Guy Garvey as “the UK’s answer to Bright Eyes” started to write prolifically over the following two years. Building a devoted fanbase in Manchester and wowing crowds nationwide supporting fellow troubadour Stephen Fretwell, Liam has also shared a stage with Nine Black Alps, Willy Mason, Badly Drawn Boy and Kinks legend Ray Davies.

The EP track list is as follows:
1. She Painted Pictures
2. If Tonight We Could Only Sleep
3. Try Try Try
4. Slow Slowly Slow

Liam will be doing residencies at the Night and Day in Manchester and London’s Water Rats Theatre to coincide with the EP release. He’ll be joined by his band The Slowdown Family, the shadowy group of musicians that Liam had recruited over the last couple of years. A full supporting cast will also be announced soon. The dates are:

Manchester Night & Day
26th January
2nd February
9th February
16th February
