I Am Blackbird EP Launch – Night & Day Cafe – 7th May 2010

Posted on May 15, 2010


Last Friday saw the official launch of I Am Blackbird’s fantastic new EP ‘This Town’ at the Night & Day Cafe in Manchester. Recently named Piccadilly Records’ ‘Record of the Week’, a truly deserved accolade, the EP is excellent and there is a review available on Passions Just Like Mine for anybody not familiar with the band. The night was a fantastic success, as a large crowd witnessed another top quality performance from Manchester’s finest band. Jonny Baldwin, the bands lead singer, guitar player and songwriter, delivered an inspired display, again proving that he is nailed on to become a big success – he truly is a master of the big chorus. The band introduced a new song to the set, once again featuring an infectious, high-intensity chorus of the highest order. It wont be long before they are more widely known but for now they can be found playing across Manchester. See the bands MySpace for upcoming gigs.
