Boxed In

Oli Bayston comes from a varied musical background, but listening to the indie pop gems he’s churning out now, you could say it’s all been leading up to Boxed In. Frontman of Manchester band Keith back in the mid-2000s, Bayston became a production assistant after they disbanded, penning songs with the likes of The 2 Bears and George Fitzgerald. As a producer in his own right he set up a studio locally and co-wrote with Anita Blay and Lianne La Havas. Now back front and centre with Boxed in, and joined by Liam Hutton and Mark Nicholls, the group serve up a beautiful synthesis of production savvy and hook-conscious song writing.
