“New Man” from Warme’s debut album, “Council house Opera” – out this week- will kick off the launch of Yorkshire Music Box. The new feature on the screen has been especially designed to give profile to Yorkshire musicians and bring new music to Bradford at the same time celebrating the filmmaking talent that is capturing artists so well. The Buttershaw band’s new single about growing up in Bradford will play alongside local bands Nervous Orse, “Dead is the New Alive,” Apache Tears “Bear Trap” and singer songwriter, Iman Hekima’s “Keep it Simple.”

Warme lead singer Lee Walsh said: “Yorkshire Music Box here in Bradford is a brilliant opportunity for local talent. There is so much creativity in this area and I hope that us getting a slot on Music Box inspires new and young musicians to carry on making music and putting it out there for people to hear.”

Bradford UNESCO Director of Film, David Wilson said: “We’ve been delighted with the response to Yorkshire Music Box from local bands, singers and songwriters. The quality of the acts and some of the filmmaking techniques used to capture them really needs to be celebrated more widely.

“The screen in City Park is a great platform for any artist – with more than 400,000 people passing by every month. We’re welcoming all types of music from pop to folk to classical. I hope Yorkshire Music Box will also give people access to music they may never have listened to before.”

Yorkshire Music Box on the big screen will run twice a week from Wednesday at 6pm and Saturday at 3pm.
