Manchester Story - #HEREANDNOW

“There’s nothing quite like the feeling when you’re listening to a song, written by someone that you don’t know, who you’ve never met, who somehow manages to describe exactly how you felt at a particular time in a moment in your life”.


You cannot talk about Manchester without mentioning the incredible music that people from the city have produced.

We want to use lyrics of those songs and the memories that they have for people to look at a very simple story….

the moment when you first meet someone that you love.

At that moment, you don’t know if that person will be the person you end up spending your whole life with, someone who ends up hurting you more than you could ever imagine or someone that you never ended up seeing again and always wondered about. But in that first moment, when you first see each other, when everything else fades into the background, anything is possible.

We want to help people remember what suddenly falling in love felt like again.
