HOAX Live: Manchester 23rd July 2019

The fifth stop (& the last semi final) of the HOAX Live Tour took place on Tuesday night at Gorilla, Manchester. Five incredibly talented artists (shortlisted over hundreds of applicants) took to the stage to compete for a slot in the final of the HOAX Live competition, with the overall winner supporting Ed Sheeran on his last date of his Divide World Tour.

The winner was decided by five industry experts on the night. It was mutually agreed that the trio 'Germein' were the most deserving of the fifth finalist spot in Norwich on the 16th August 2019 at Epic Studios.


"Growing up jamming together on their family farm in South Australia, sisters Georgia (guitar, keys), Ella (bass, electric cello), and Clara Germein (drums) have since been turning heads across the globe with their unique brand of catchy indie rock pop songs & signature harmonies.

Having toured with the likes of Phil Collins, Little Mix, & Jess Glynne to name a few, Germein’s energetic and charismatic live show has been described as nothing short of mesmerising."
