REVERIEME Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 4 June 2017, Reverieme

Airdrie is not the first place that springs to mind when it comes to musical excellence, but a high school English teacher in the town is set to change that. Louise Connell, who records under the name Reverieme, has been attracting attention of tastemakers including Radio 2’s Bob Harris, 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and even Radio 4’s Clive Anderson.

With a pop sensibility, combined with a way with words not usually associated with the genre, she creates joyous songs, many of which are accompanied by video clips [http://bit.ly/revmeyoutube] Her most recent, Ten Feet Tall, has a rousing feel and showcases a new band.
Reverieme’s next gig is at XpoNorth in Inverness on Wednesday (7 June) and will be followed by festival slots including North Hop (17 June), Solas (24 June), Bute Fest (29 July) and Hawick (3 August). We can’t think of a better reason for standing in a field. https://reverieme.bandcamp.com

CALUM MACKENZIE JONES Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 28 May 2017, Calum Mackenzie Jones

Hailing from Moray, Calum Mackenzie Jones has packed an impressive amount of musical activity into the three years since he started playing open mic nights at the age of 13.

Drawing on folk, country, blues and Celtic rock, his debut single Your Man, picked up a spin on Jo Whiley’s Radio 2 show when it was released in February.

This followed on from a string of live slots in 2016 including XpoNorth, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, Speyfest and more. This month he released a charity single, The La La Song, which is due to be followed by a debut album, Wasted Days, on 21 June.

Get a taste of what is to come with the title track – http://bit.ly/utrcmjones on which Jones, plays every instrument (except fiddle). With bookings lined up for Eden Festival, Northern Roots, Seafest, Bootstock and Fur Folks Sake, we expect a lot more people will be hearing this promising artist in the coming months.
