Francis Bowie

Francis Bowie is a metrosexual whirlwind of creativity within the Danish music and art scene. His new EP is a beautifully crafted selection of his finest songs in a pop-ish mode. With soaring synth-lines and orchestral backing, it’s light yet deep; sincere and thoughtful; catchy yet cool.

In Copenhagen in 2007, Francis opened his first art gallery, while also releasing the debut album “Too Much” with his indie art rock band “A LOVE YOU“. GalArtery soon became a place where young artists could gather and do their shows and performances. In the spring of 2011 along with two designers, he opened a second art gallery called MATT 18 which also exhibits fashion, clothing and design.

Gerry Marsden

Gerry and the Pacemakers‘ claim to fame is being known as the second most famous group from Liverpool. It’s not such a bad thing considering who the first one is! They achieved no less than three UK Number 1’s, two Top 5 and one Top 10 singles since the bands formation in 1962.

Gerry Marsden created a national anthem with his endorsement of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” which has become the signature tune of Liverpool Football Club and to this day is sung at grounds throughout the UK.

In 1981 Gerry met up with David Martin (singer/songwriter and producer) when they were holidaying in Spain. Having struck up a lasting friendship they decided to mark 2012 with a 50th Anniversary album.Skerryvore
