Ventrelles began as the solo project of singer songwriter Phil Knox Jr, who brought the project home to Manchester from where he began building the blueprint in Chicago several years ago.
Since the first recordings that were released with a helping hand from Manchester label Black Bleach Records the band has slowly started to seep into the hearts and minds of all who come across the Ventrelles sound and they have gone strength to strength. releasing their latest single ‘County Lines’ a three minute, thirty seconds of heartfelt vocals, driving rhythms and dreamscape guitars, to much local acclaim.
Their melodic and and visually sonic Synesthesia will leave you wanting more and wondering where they’ve been hiding. Do not miss out.

Support comes from Patrick T. Davies
Patrick T. Davies began performing a ramshackle brand of shouted word around the open mics of Manchester three years ago, before developing a self-produced musical backing to his work that culminated in the release of two EPs in 2019.
A collaborative single with break-core producer, Gore Tech, followed - as well as a guest spot on The Blinders' 'For the Many' Tour & live shows at The Ritz, Bluedot & Shambala Festival to name a few.
