RICHARD Oakes from Suede performs in Bradford this month with his other band Artmagic. The band can be seen at Sorm Studios on May 11 to promote their latest album and singles.

Richard has played since 2012 in the duo Artmagic with Alison Moyet musician Sean McGhee.

Following the release of the duo’s 2012 debut album, Richard returned to Suede, re-establishing them with a trilogy of UK top 10 albums – Bloodsports, Night Thoughts and The Blue Hour.

Meanwhile producer and vocalist Sean McGhee joined Alison Moyet as backing singer and musical director, participating in two world tours and co-writing the two singles from her 2017 top 20 album Other.

However, Artmagic always planned to press on with their partnership, and after a seven-year silence they have returned with second album The Songs Of Other England.

The Bradford gig is the first of a series of events to promote the upcoming Shuttle Shuffle Festival in August. Visit for information.
