Gerald Rydel Simpson, better known as A Guy Called Gerald was born in Moss Side, Manchester, England back in 1967 – and has been in the music industry for over 25 years now, and I ONLY JUST DISCOVERED HIM!
Gerald and I come from the same part of England, (which makes me very proud to be a Mancunian!) and is best known for his work in the acid house scene of Madchester in the late 80’s.
Considering the fact that G’s been going for quite a few years now, I came across one of his biggest tracks called Voodoo Ray (one of his first tracks) and it’s immense!
Gerald played in The Haçienda back in 1988 – damn, if only I was born a few years earlier, I would’ve loved to have gotten the chance to go to Haç! He has over 10 studio albums and has even collaborated with Herbie Hancock!!!
Anyways, I’d like to share this piece of gold with you all, hope you enjoy it, and long live Manchester and it’s music!
Born and raised in Manchester, England, JJ Hodari, is a down to earth, passionate, deep guy with an immense love for music that is noticeable the minute you hear him sing or see him play.
I’ve known JJ for years, since we were toddlers, and when I heard his music the first, I remember I was speechless. I had no idea JJ was into music! We were friends on social networks, but hadn’t really kept that much in touch…
JJ has said that he wants to make real music, no gimmicks – and this is evident in his emotive vocals and catchy melodies.
It’s weird to be a fan of someone you’ve known for years, but I must say, I am a big fan of yours JJ!
May your passion spread around the world, and I wish you the best in the world.
Have a listen to JJ perform his debut single Break our Bones released last October here:
