Line Up


“A five piece band from Scotland with strong Americana vibes, who originally formed in 2007 and have had a few different line ups of band members since. They pull on influences from artists like The Jayhawks and Lucinda Williams, but have a distinctly unique style of their own. With all the musical ingredients you'd expect from an Americana band, you can expect to hear some strong guitar solos from lead guitarist, Michael O'Brien, and a solid rhythm section from bass player Sandy Mercer and drummer Rab Campbell who can easily shift from their more upbeat numbers to the stillness of tracks like 'Rex Harrison' and 'Woman'. The band write music as a group and mainly pull their lyrical inspirations of rhythm guitarist, John Hanley, and lead vocalist, Barbara Simpson, who frequently co-write together.”
