Rum Thief is solo artist Jot Green with support from his band, based in Chorlton, Manchester. The project began when Green, after playing as a drummer in bands for over ten years, decided to record some songs of his own. Booking into Airtight studio in Chorlton, Manchester he performed the drums, guitars, vocals and backing vocals to produce his first EP ‘Clouded Mind’. The titular lead track generated interest from media outlets across the north west and with the help of ex band mates and a new live drummer, Rum Thief secured some local gigs, festivals, support slots and airplay on local and national radio. ‘Reach For The Weather Man’ is Rum Thief’s second EP and is characterised by Jot Green’s keen ear for melody and his sharp observational lyrical content.

“In Rum Thief Manchester surely has one of the biggest talents in the UK at the moment and after the amazing ‘Clouded Mind EP’, they are back and keeping momentum going with debut single ‘Dirty Shoes'”
“From the sharp, lyrical mind of Jot Green comes alter ego, ‘Rum Thief’ – an artist whose fresh garage sound captures the true essence of Manchester grit and attitude.”
