DENI SMITH Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 20 November 2016, Deni Smith

We first encountered singer-songwriter Deni Smith performing at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in August on her 19th birthday. The musician started out performing covers on YouTube and gradually began gigging live around Fife.

She’s played the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, supported more established artists such as Fatherson, Mull Historical Society, Sinderins and Model Aeroplanes and recently released a single, Bring Back The Sun, which is bound to get stuck in your head thanks to the catchy singalong chorus.

She tours this week as part of youth music initiative Hit The Road, headlining at home on Friday at PJ Molloy’s in Dunfermline, followed by gigs at The Stove in Dumfries and Oran Mor in Glasgow, with Elia Davidson and Rebekah Kirk.

Scotland On Sunday, 13 November 2016, Crash Club

Glasgow’s electronic/rock quartet Crash Club are a real family affair, consisting of brothers Aran and Neal McHarg with cousins Sammy and Colin completing the line-up.

The band don’t have a dedicated singer, instead vocal duties are fulfilled by a rotating group of friends from other bands. Crash Club earned themselves the Best Electronic Artist award at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards last month and have been picking up praise from various media outlets as well as counting members of groups like Kasabian and The Klaxons as fans.

They release their debut EP C.C.101 on 2 December via Samba Hut Records. To promote the release, the quartet play a launch night at Glasgow’s St Luke’s on 3 December with support from The Calm Fiasco. Watch the video for Pennydrop with Ian Mackinnon from Medicine Men at:
