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.

Glasgow punk trio Breakfast Muff are Eilidh McMillan, Simone Wilson and Cal Donnelly, and they are setting the blogosphere alight with their effervescent live shows.

Formed in 2014, their third album Eurgh! is out via Amour Foo on 7 July.

The trio create ferocious three-minute songs, bursting full of anger, passion and joy. All members share guitar, bass and drumming duties, switching around between songs, and their lyrics explore sexuality, feminism, bullying and more.
