Edinburgh four-piece The Blet Project have been picking up interest in some respected quarters since forming in spring 2015, with their single Mr David Harris picking up spins on Amazing Radio and Parisian station Radio KC, as well being shortlisted on Tom Robinson’s Fresh on the Net’s Fresh Fave’s.

Frontwoman Maisie Hutt delivers their social comment-infused lyrics, and the band’s tracks vary from the jazzy reggae feel of Eight Till Ten to the combined synth and guitar of Anthem.

The Blet Project have supported former UTR-featured acts The Mirror Trap and Kirsten Adamson, and launch their debut album at Edinburgh’s Mash House on 18 November. Entitled Now Live, it is a perfect introduction to the band’s eclectic style.

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
