Originally from Inverness, Josephine Sillars is a talented young singer-songwriter currently living in Glasgow.

Over the past few years, she has toured throughout Scotland, Europe and internationally in addition to appearing at local festivals like Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival and XpoNorth. This year she launched her debut EP Ripped From The Wire Spine with a string of sold out performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Playing piano and singing, Sillars is a genuine talent who breathes new life into the singer-songwriter genre with her quirky and off-kilter phrasing [reminiscent of Regina Spektor].

New single Vincent is self released digitally on 14 December but receives it’s first national radio spin courtesy of Roddy Hart on his BBC Radio Scotland show tomorrow night [7 December]. See Josephine live supporting Rachelle Rhienne at King Tuts on 17 December. Listen to her single at and see for more info
