Formed in July of 2014 through a local open mic, The Maple Clouds have risen rapidly in their local music scene of Crewe and Nantwich before beginning to take over outer parts, with gigs in Manchester, Liverpool and The Midlands under their belt as well as very well received performances at festivals such as Nantwich Jazz Blues and Music Festival, Standish Live Festival, and Wigan Live Festival!
With music ranging from Aretha Franklin to Jessie J, The Maple Clouds deliver a solid showcase of soulful songs. Combining the smooth voice of Sharmane Smith with the accompaniment and backing vocals of Marc Gallagher, The Maple Clouds have filled venues from around the North West and beyond, with harmonies tighter than Beyonce’s jeans!
Eager to spread their music through more than just live shows, The Maple Clouds got straight to work in the studio, releasing their debut covers album ‘Volume 1’ in December 2014 to good acclaim. They released their follow up ‘Volume 2’ in July 2015 achieveing similar success. 2016 has seen extensive gigging thus far, and even a tour of Northern Ireland is scheduled for July!
