Canter Semper Canter Semper are an acoustic duo hailing from Chorlton, South Manchester. Our eclectic mix of folk, soul and jazz are underpinned by bold and intricate harmonies, giving our sound a unique, live lounge style quality. Influenced by artists such as Florence and the Machine, Eva Cassidy and The Civil Wars, we strive to make music that captivates new audiences with soulful vocals and emotive melodies. Starting out as a duo in 2012 we have gone from bedroom rehearsals to performing at nights put on by up and coming label Scruff of the Neck Records and gigging prolifically around greater Manchester at Acoustic nights and new music events. Recent gigs include Pop Up Festival, Night and Day cafe, Matt and Phreds and Headlander festival. Last April saw the release of our EP 'Halflight' launched at the popular venue The Castle Hotel, we released our first single to Itunes in November also. We are performing for Sofar Sounds this month and working towards our next self-produced music event.
