Ideal Forgery are an unsigned Alternative Rock Band hailing from Manchester, UK. With raw vocal power, weaving lead cello lines and a gritty rhythm section, and with genre defining influences including Biffy Clyro, Ben Howard, Led Zeppelin, Sound Garden and City And Colour their music entices listeners into a unique and diverse sound world.
Following the release of their ‘Debut EP’ in 2017 and several sell-out shows in Manchester’s leading music venues such as The Deaf Institute, Manchester Academy, The Ruby Lounge and Night and Day Cafe, the band released their single ‘Chase The Light’ in 2018, which saw them embark upon a tour across the UK, which concluded on the Isle of Man.
Currently in the studio working on their first album, the band is set to release a double A-side single, followed by more live dates and a subsequent UK tour in 2019, their music entices listeners into a unique and diverse sound world.
I grew up on a farm in the highlands of Scotland but am now a Nottingham based Singer/ Songwriter. I originally was inspired by the acoustic and poetic tendencies of Passenger, James Blunt etc. Throughout my teens I listened to a lot of pop such as Lorde, Mike Posner, Mø etc. I try and blend different ideas from across the musical spectrum. My rack was recently spun on BBC Introducing Nottingham and I have just booked my first London Show on the 9th Aug at ’93 Feet East’. I am looking forward to showcasing a large catalogue of unreleased music. I have big plans for the following year with multiple more releases planned.
