The Arts Centre at Edge Hill University teamed up with online magazine Getintothis to present a night of new music in the campus venue.

Getintothis’ Deep Cuts is a well-respected regular showcase gig that has presented 25 nights of ground breaking music in Liverpool. The collaboration was the first ’away day’ for Deep Cuts and the first time the Red Bar has been used for a large-scale rock/pop gig.

First up were The Cherries, fronted by first year Music Production student Cai Thomas, with Music student Karl Davies on the guitar and Ben Court, a Media, Music and Sound student, on the cajon.

Next up was Charity Shop Pop, the performing identity of second year Music Production student David Hughes, whose single Always You was released last year though The Label Recordings, Edge Hill’s own record label.

There were also performances from TRACKY, Hanover and Big Bambora.

First year Film and Television Production student, Natalie Cannell, thoroughly enjoyed the event.

“The Deep Cuts event was a night I’ll hold fondly in my memory during my time here at Edge Hill,” said Natalie. “Not only was I able to meet and interview some of these bands before the event itself, but I was able to experience the talent of these bands and solo artists up close which was beyond brilliant. All the bands were instantly found on social media and followed in the hopes to see more of their musical talent and upcoming performances!”

Peter Guy, Editor at Getintothis, said:

Getintothis‘ ethos is to champion vital new music to new audiences – and Deep Cuts provides that platform. Everything came together for our first Deep Cuts outside of Liverpool, and it was a pleasure to see so many people come down and support four brand new bands and musicians. There was a genuine buzz in the venue and it was a real swell night. From all the Getintothis team we’d like to thank the artists, staff and audience for ensuring such a great night – here’s to the next one.”
