LILURA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 22 October 2017, LILURA

LILURA signals the successful transition to electro-pop for Highlands singer-songwriter Jemma Tweedie who previously built a solid profile as an acoustic artist.

Over the past year, LILURA has performed at XpoNorth, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival and recently returned from a writing trip in Los Angeles. The result, new single ’Darkest Desire’ which was co-written by Dan Richards (One Direction), is a confident slice of dark, glitzy, electro-pop at its finest.


To coincide with the official release on 17 November, LILURA tours alongside fellow Highlands act Josephine Sillars + The Manic Pixie Dreams playing Green Rooms in Perth on Friday, The Drouthy Cobbler in Elgin on 4 November, Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on 5 November and The Hug & Pint in Glasgow on 7 November.

ANNIE BOOTH Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 15 October 2017, Annie Booth

Edinburgh-based Annie Booth is a familiar face on the Central Belt scene thanks to providing vocal and guitar duties for Mt Doubt. Now striking out as an act in her own right, she is due to release her debut album An Unforgiving Light on Friday, on what is being billed as a joint venture between the labels Scottish Fiction and Last Night From Glasgow.

Citing early influences such as Turin Brakes and Bombay Bicycle Club, she has recorded a confident collection of songs which serve to highlight a great voice and some interesting guitar sounds. The track Chasm comes accompanied by a video shot by veteran music photographer Brian Sweeney, while the clip for the rockier second single, Over My Dead Body, came out on Wednesday.
An Unforgiving Light will be launched with gigs at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s on Thursday, and Glasgow’s Hug And Pint on Friday visit www.facebook.com/annieboothmusic
