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.

Scotland On Sunday, 7 August 2016, Laurence Made Me Cry

Laurence Made Me Cry is the songstress, artist and multi-instrumentalist Jo Whitby, who is based between Glasgow and the Highlands.

We first encountered LMMC’s electronica folk at the XpoNorth Festival in June, and witnessed another impressive set on the XpoNorth Seedlings stage at the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.

Whitby has been picking up plays from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Vic Galloway and Roddy Hart on BBC Radio Scotland, Amazing Radio and has supported artists like Gulp and Rae Spoon. The artist was also nominated for a Welsh Music Prize for her crowd-funded debut album ‘The Diary Of Me.’

Her latest EP, ‘Titans’ Daughters’ features collaborations with artists like Rachel Sermanni, Chrissy Barnacle and producer Simon Parton and the results are sublime.

UK and European tour dates are to be announced very soon. To listen and find out more:
