Raised in Birmingham to an Irish mother and Jamaican father, Ceeow is now Manchester based and has been steadily building an avid fan base with his highly personal combination of hip-hop and jazz.
His SoFar EP was released to acclaim in 2019, his music a melting pot of detectable influences from Dizzee Rascal to David Bowie, from classic Garage to Erykah Badu. Funk bass, trap beats and acid jazz organ complement Ceeows emotive delivery. Thriving off community, Ceeow also dedicates time to mental health recovery, working in a behavioural needs unit. He is an emerging, unique presence whom we’re thrilled to welcome to the festival.
Joining Ceeow for this celebratory evening of Alternative Hip-hop is Staffordshire born Blaze Florence. Blaze evolved from making early Grime recordings to fashioning a hip-hop sound that’s all his own, merging genres over smooth but hard hitting beats. In 2017 he won the Staffordshire best urban artist award and has been a BBC Introducing featured act. He has subsequently released 2 further EPs.
