Liv May is a 17-year-old singer-songwriter from Stockport who grew up listening to an eclectic mix of musical influences, from jazz icons Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday to the more modern low-fi jazz sounds of Rex Orange County and Mac DeMarco. Combining melancholic lyrical influences with effortless vocals, Liv May creates a timeless sound that is reminiscent of the classical blues tradition of the 1920s and the folk-pop movement of the 1960s.
Having started writing songs during her school days, her talent became clear to see after an acoustic performance of ‘Jar Of Hearts’ won her first prize at a local talent competition. Since then, Liv May hasn’t stopped writing her own material, which has featured on BBC Radio Manchester, and has already supported Tony Hadley at The Lowry, Salford.
Liv May is currently working with producer and pianist Andrew Jones who, as an arranger at the Royal Northern College of Music, has helped develop her sound and musical style. Having already released the bright folk-pop song ‘On the Coast’ on Blossom’s ‘Very Clever Records’, Liv May is now looking forward to releasing more new music throughout 2019 on Seven Miles Out Records.
