The Ninth Watch are an indie band from Manchester, UK. The band consists of Ste Ahern on vocals, Mike Fieldhouse on guitar, Ian Holden on bass and Matt Ryan on drums. Our line up was strengthened recently with the addition of Jon Hollingsworth on synths.
We formed originally as a 4 piece at the end of 2011 and quickly began writing some new material. We tried to write a variety of songs to demonstrate a depth and creativity that would show diversity, whilst remaining true to our Manchester roots. Early 2012 we entered the studio to record 6 different tracks.
By summer 2012 we were regularly being asked to headline most of Manchester’s top music venues. The support and reviews we received were overwhelming, and we were pleased to hear our songs on local radio.
At the end of 2012 we decided to take a break from gigging in order to concentrate on writing some more material, and we invited Jon to join us on synths and help add more depth to our sound.
We hope you enjoy the 6 songs we have created so far, and please feel free to find us on Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud and our website.
