With influences including Love, Buffalo Springfield and Television the band bring to life heart-felt, well crafted and melodic songs which breathe with warmth, intricate arrangements and moments of psychedelia.
Prior to Manistone Michael was part of Stricken City where he gained experience performing around the world supporting major bands at venues including Brixton Academy (Ldn) and Bowery Ballrooms (NY).
Manistone’s debut LP ‘Everyone Has Their Time’ is set for release March 2017 via limited edition 12" LP and online. Tracks have already been received enthusiastically by BBC London, 6 Music and Amazing Radio.
