ALEX MAXWELL Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 11 June 2017, Chris Greig

Hailing from Dumfries, Alex Maxwell first came to our attention at our Wide Days conference, where he was one of only a handful of artists to receive positive feedback about his music on our “A&R You Brave Enough” session.

He has performed local festivals like Eden and Electric Fields and featured in various blogs. Maxwell’s debut single, The Want Comes In Waves, also the title of his debut EP, has a clear Frightened Rabbit influence (no bad thing) and features Lissa Robertson enabling sweet girl/boy vocal harmonies.

Scotland on Sunday readers can watch the video for the single below or visit: https://youtu.be/NtLIzbQ7FWs

Live dates include 1 July at Kelburn Garden Party, 20 July at The Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh, 28 July at Mugstock Festival (full band set) and 9 September at The Live Lounge in Dumfries. For more info see www.alex-maxwell.com

CHRIS GREIG Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 11 June 2017, Chris Greig

Chris Greig first caught our attention last year with his debut EP Down The Road, which was launched with a sell-out show in Edinburgh’s Mash House.


The impressive collection of songs clearly demonstrated his potential as a songwriter and this has been further cemented by having a full band to deliver his compositions.
Greig has already enjoyed a spin on Radio 1 and secured support slots for local favourites Indigo Velvet and Vistas as well as American performer Tim Kasher.

Friday saw the release of Greig’s new single Railways (listen here: (http://bit.ly/chrisgreigutr) and a gig at the capital’s La Belle Angele.
With its anthemic feel and singalong chorus, it has a strong pop feel which would sit comfortably on a Radio 2 playlist. Greig and band next perform as part of King Tut’s Summer Nights Festival on 18 July.
