Akcadamy are introducing something new to the rap genre.

Fusing hip-hop beats with funky guitar-based rhythms, the 5-piece bring a fresh approach to the game. Taking an innovative look into how rap can be delivered, they are definitely a band to watch out for in 2017.  

The band were joined by new-comer to live music and long-time friend of frontman Adam C, Paddy Connelly. Reflecting on his first gig, he told us: "The nerves were massive beforehand, but after the first song I really got into it, really enjoyed the night!"

Creative Sessions, recently adding shows to Manchester, provides a chance for upcoming artists to showcase their talents, adding to the already vibrant music scene in Manchester. 

Fronted by Adam C, the band's music can be found on their Soundcloud Facebook, and Twitter.
