An engaging young singer-songwriter from Oran, Moray, creating original material rooted in Folk but influenced by many genres including Country, Indie, Blues, Traditional and Celtic Rock. Best described by Vic Galloway as Indie-Folk-Rock with mature and powerful vocals.

2017 was a great year for this young musician, his debut single was showcased by Jo Whiley on BBCRadio2, tracks from his debut album received airplay on numerous stations and his 2 charity singles raised over £2700 for his five chosen charities. He received positive write-ups in The Scotsman & The Sun and showcased his music on STV Live at Five.

He also hit the Festival circuit running, performing at Belladrum, Eden, Northern Roots, Speyfest, Jocktoberfest, Killin (where he won the competition to open this year’s festival) and more.

Other highlights include performing to a packed Perth Concert Hall, in the great hall of Edinburgh Castle, at SWG3 Glasgow, with the Manchester Royal College of Music Session Orchestra and supporting Brownbear, Callum Beattie & John Smith (at Eden Court)           

2018 is looking to be equally exciting. Having got off to a great start with a Highly Recommended performance on the Danny Kyle stage at Celtic Connections and the release of his Debut Scottish Folk EP https://youtu.be/UCz35rQdNBA he has performances confirmed at Groove Cairngorm, March Into Pitlochry, supporting Skerryvore at The Arc Sessions, supporting Elephant Sessions at The Ironworks and many more festivals still to be announced.
