OK Broken

Ok Broken have been on the Manchester music scene since 2012. They've played venues all over the North including O2 Ritz Manchester and O2 Leeds Academy. The band consists of 3 members: Gareth Wright on guitar and main vocal, Phil McArdle on bass and vocals and Alexander Whitehead on drums. They've just completed a session in Oscillate Studios recording their next EP, hooking up with The Courteeners engineer to help them through the process. Their sound is a mix of British and American rock/indie with songs such as Waiting In Line - a melodic crown anthem being played at Old Trafford during half time. The influences of the band range from Kasabian to Queen, Foo Fighters to Biffy Clyro and back again.

Upcoming Gigs include:

The Bred Shed with The Moods
Wellifest - Saddleworth
Shure5 show with The Transmitters
