ALI ROBERTSON Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 2 October 2016, Ali Robertson

Originally from Fife, 20-year-old singer-songwriter Ali Robertson impressed us recently at his debut headline gig in Glasgow.

Despite being a relative newcomer to the live music scene, he has already generated a considerable buzz and has teamed up with Grammy-winning producer Dave Donaldson and Write Club Music.

Singles ‘Something About Your Love’, ‘Crazy’ and his latest release ‘Closer’ have clocked up more than 250,000 plays on Spotify, attracted radio support in the UK from BBC Radio Scotland and Amazing Radio and airplay in the US on the KCRW station in California.

Robertson has a knack for writing slick, superbly-produced pop gems and we predict it’s only a matter of time before he achieves commercial success.

You can see him live at Glasgow’s St Luke’s on 12 October supporting Jones. Listen at https://soundcloud.com/alirobertsonmusic

BRONSTON Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 25 September 2016, Bronston

Edinburgh four-piece Bronston burst on to the scene in February with a sell-out launch gig for their debut single, I Feel Safe. The track garnered respectable feedback at the public listening session during our music industry conference Wide Days, with veteran producer Youth giving it an emphatic thumbs-up.

Since then the band have developed a sound which incorporates funky bass, heavy guitars and some anthemic grunge vocals which occasionally stray into emo territory. I Feel Safe’s follow-up Where Can I Hide? continues in this musical vein, and a launch night to celebrate its release takes place at Glasgow’s Nice’n’Sleazy on Wednesday 28 September, followed by a Perth show. The band resume live activities at the end of next month supporting Losing Ground in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dunfermline.
