Canter Semper are an acoustic band hailing from Chorlton, South Manchester. Our eclectic mix of folk, soul and jazz are underpinned by bold and intricate harmonies, giving our sound a vintage gospel vibe.Influenced by artists such as Florence and the Machine, Eva Cassidy and The Civil Wars, we strive to make music that captivates new audiences with harmony driven, soulful vocals.

We have gigged prolifically around Manchester at venues such as The Deaf Institute, Club Academy, Gullivers, The Castle and The Ruby Lounge. We perform as a duo, four piece (keys + vocals) and also as a full acoustic band. Our most recent shows have also included The NQ Singing Group backing choir as well as Manchester poet Steph Lonsdale. We are constantly adding and enhancing our sound and we love nothing more than performing live and collaborating.
