· News From Manhaton Records
2015 has been a very busy year for the staff at Manhaton Records, and we see no reason why 2016 should be any different!
You can expect a brand new album from the legendary Robin Trower, and I must say the demos we've been sent are terrific so far. You'll love them.
King King go from strength to strength, and as a real reward for their hard work over the past years they've accepted to perform on an arena tour with the 90's rock band Thunder. Something the guys are very excited about. Alan has been a big Thunder fan for many years!
Both Ben Poole and Stevie Nimmo will release new albums in the early part of 2016. This will coincide with a vast co-headline tour of the UK. So keep your eyes peeled for when they visit a town near you, and go and see them do their thing.
Hat Fitz & Cara continue to put together album number four, and will return for a few select shows in April/May, with some festivals to be added over the Summer.
Finally, we'd like to welcome new Yorker Sari Schorr to our roster of acts. Sari was introduced to Manhaton records by our old friend Mike Vernon. Legendary producer (Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall).
New York hall of fame inductee Sari is working on a new album with mike and her band The Engine Room, and that will also see the light of day in 2016.
