BIOGRAPHY: Middleman is a four-piece pop-hop band from West Yorkshire. This consists of four Midlanders who have been drawn to the north to find their fortune. The poetry of Andy Craven-Giffths is combined with an upbeat combination of live and electronic sounds. Krishna, Matthew and Lee have previously worked together on other projects, such as supporting the Mad Professor, Mr Thing, Junior Murvin and Shimon (Ram Triology), and were looking for inspiration for a new musical venture. They discovered Andy and his lyrical imagination through a group of Leeds break dancers, which was the perfect solution. Middleman is shortly to be embarking on their debut UK tour, which includes venues in Leeds, London Manchester, Nottingham, Leicester and Brighton. Check out the official website for dates and info.
STYLE OF MUSIC:  Middleman are bouncy, pop-hop coming to you from the heart of Leeds!
