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.

DENI SMITH Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 20 November 2016, Deni Smith

We first encountered singer-songwriter Deni Smith performing at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in August on her 19th birthday. The musician started out performing covers on YouTube and gradually began gigging live around Fife.

She’s played the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, supported more established artists such as Fatherson, Mull Historical Society, Sinderins and Model Aeroplanes and recently released a single, Bring Back The Sun, which is bound to get stuck in your head thanks to the catchy singalong chorus.

She tours this week as part of youth music initiative Hit The Road, headlining at home on Friday at PJ Molloy’s in Dunfermline, followed by gigs at The Stove in Dumfries and Oran Mor in Glasgow, with Elia Davidson and Rebekah Kirk. Watch the video for her single [below] or visit www.denismithmusic.co.uk
