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.

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
