Dragon’s Den-backed duo release summer album
Dragons Den has backed spirits producers Liam Manton and Mark Smallwood, the duo behind Didsbury Gin and ARLU Rum hope to follow in the footsteps of Mancunian musical royalty with their first-ever release slated for later this year.
The couple have signed with Manchester-based music publishing and talent management firm NQ, the team behind Aitch and a host of other talents.
The duo have reworked a number of classic duets and are set to release their debut single “We Two Can Have A Party” this summer.
Liam Manton said:
“We are absolutely thrilled to partner with NQ, Adex and the team share our vision of pushing the boundaries of musical genres in so many directions and I can’t wait to take these songs from the shower to the stage”
Mark Smallwood added:
“Me and Liam often sing songs on the terraces of Old Trafford so it feels like a natural progression. There are so many classic duets on this album, we cover everyone from Marvin & Tammy, Kendrick & Mary, Elton & Kiki to PJ & Duncan, it’s going to be a great summer.
NQ’s Michael Adex said:
“The entire NQ team is thrilled to partner with Liam and Mark on their foray into music. This project could bring more people in different fields to experience music”
