Win tickets to see Mancunian indie/hip-hop duo Prose and acclaimed chamber orchestra, Manchester Camerata at Manchester Academy 2 on March 23, 2019.

Prose will be playing live with nine members of Manchester Camerata and special guests, exciting new artists Tobi Sunmola and James Holt.  Prose are Mike Murray (singer/rapper) and Lee Royle (guitar, vocals) 

One of Murray and Royle’s previous collaborations was with four-time BRIT Award winner Emeli Sandé who joined Prose for their track Head Sick after being introduced by London DJ and producer Naughty Boy, a long-term collaborator who signed Prose to his label after discovering them on YouTube. The full Empty Hands EP will be available in March 2019.

Prose drew a broad variety of comparisons in their early press coverage. They were described as a combination of down-to-earth U.K. hip-hop, similar to the The Streets or Plan B, and a touch of melodic lad rock that took its cues from fellow Mancunians Oasis. Their lyrical approach was inspired by life experience, often covering very personal subjects.

Prose released their debut album Home of The Brave which was well received across the U.K. and beyond. Playing sold out shows in different cities and supporting the likes of Emeli Sandé, JP Cooper, Professor Green, Naughty Boy and more.
