S.T. Manville grew up playing in punk bands. After tiring of non stop DIY touring he went on to write both platinum and gold selling records, working with artists such as Mø, Biffy Clyro, Burna Boy, Little Mix and Becky Hill.
Records he has worked on have been streamed over 50 Million times. However, disenchanted with the pop world, towards the end of 2018 Manville picked up a guitar and started writing for himself. What came next was a flood of highly personal songs full of regret, awe, sorrow and hope. His debut release however was an album of punk covers called ‘Somebody Else's Songs’. Featuring songs by Green Day, Blink 182, The Offspring, Weezer, plus other lesser known bands such as ALL and Owls. Recording and playing everything himself, his hushed vocals, intimate guitar playing and rustic accompaniments on banjo, violin and accordion bring a sentimental gravitas to songs you may not have thought it possible to. Following the covers album the subsequent slew of original singles and the release of his ‘Little Victories EP’ has not only cemented his unique style but also showcased his beautifully personal approach to songwriting. In the 6 months since his first release Manville has been supported by Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing, Kerrang! Radio, Flux FM, DIY Mag, i-d Magazine and Discovered Magazine. 2019 saw him play a successful run of dates all over the UK, perform at Dot to Dot and Handmade Festival as well as supporting Frank Turner.
