Gus Harrower is a talented 17 year old singer songwriter from Edinburgh, whom we first encountered in September via youth music touring project Hit The Road for emerging artists.

Self-released in June, his debut EP ‘Mystery,’ has generated praise from tastemakers like Amazing Radio’s Jim Gellatly, Podcast/Blog outlet Scottish Fiction and contributed to Harrower deservedly ending the year on numerous 2016 ‘Ones To Watch’ lists.

His new single, ‘Girl I Didn’t Know’ released last month, showcases his knack for crafting an infectious pop gem. With piano and guitar backing and catchy singalong chorus, the song signals the beginning of a promising music career.

Catch him live on 17 January as part of the Celtic Connections Hazy Recollections night at ABC in Glasgow. Listen to Girl I Didn’t Know at
