“One listen to Wynne’s music and you’ll find an accomplished songwriter just hitting his prime” MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS
“His songs are sharply observed tales of what he sees going on around him, exaggerated at times for effect, but delivered with a crisp effortless vocal style that is both raconteur and future rock star in equal measures.” EVEN THE STARS
“A Mancunion lad with more than a touch of the Alex Turner’s about him’” GET INTO THIS
“Engagingly energetic songwriter with a hefty dose of gritty vocal power, best showcased on pulsating hit ‘Why Don’t You’.” ON THE RADAR
SINGLE ‘WHY DON’T YOU’ OUT NOW ON SKELETON KEY RECORDS
As 2015 ended with his festive track ‘It’s A Shame All Christmas Songs Are Cheesy” and some live performances at Phil Taggart’s Slackers Club and a hometown show at The Castle Manchester, Rory Wynne has been tipped as one to watch in 2016.
Current single ‘Why Don’t You’ received plays from Phil Taggart and Huw Stephens Radio 1, BBC Manchester Introducing and Radio X, were the track made the evening playlist and was named the 37th Xposure Big One Track of 2015.
‘Why Don’t You’ also earned track of the days on various blogs including the likes of Gigslutz and Little Indie Blog.
A recent hometown write up in the Manchester Evening News said “Rory Wynne’s teenage rock n roll revolution shows no signs of slowing down in 2016”… which is certainly true for the 16 year old.
Last year for a bit of festive fun, Rory Wynne also unveiled new song ‘It’s A Shame All Christmas Songs Are Cheesy” just for Christmas which earned major plays from Radio 1, Radio X, BBC Radio Introducing Manchester amongst being part of Huw Stephen’s Alternative Christmas. The anti-typical festive track showcased his effortless tongue and cheek lyrics along with epic dirty guitar hooks.
Over the past few years Rory Wynne has been a truly independent pioneer from recording all his own tracks, playing all the instruments as well-being his own press officer/plugger. He released his first single ‘Post Party Confusion’ last year on New York label Mermaid Avenue (Spring King, DMAs, The Big Moon, Hinds) to releasing second single ‘Why Don’t You?’ on James Skelly’s label Skeleton Key Records, sharing its home with She Drew The Gun, Sundowners, Marvin Powell amongst many more. The label was also the birthplace of fellow Stockport natives and BBC Sound Poll shortlister’s Blossoms, who have subsequently shown support to Rory by naming ‘Why Don’t You’ one of their favourite tracks of 2015.
Fresh from support slots with Yak, RatBoy and Blossoms, Rory is set to support The Coral at Manchester’s Albert Hall on 12th March and Yak at Gullivers Manchester on 3rd Feb. More dates will be announced so watch this space.
