FOLDA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 14 January 2018, Folda

One of Edinburgh’s newest bands, Folda launched into the public domain with their debut single Aurora last week.

The quartet is Mark Morrow (no stranger to this column, he has produced scores of emerging Under The Radar-featured artists), David Ritchie, Ewan Simpson and Steve Morrison. Morrow, alongside Simpson were also members of the excellent  The Winter Tradition, whom we’ve also featured.

Aurora is a promising debut – a catchy, dark, electronica-pop track with commercial overtones. It’s expertly produced and guaranteed to get people dancing. So far it’s been featured on Radio Summerhall and smaller blogs including; Alive & Amplified and Club Decode – and no doubt there will be plenty more interest to come.

Listen to Aurora at: https://soundcloud.com/folda and visit www.facebook.com/foldaband and @Foldaband for live announcements and more music.

Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon run the Born To Be Wide music industry events and seminars. Their next events take place on 1 & 2 February www.borntobewide.co.uk

CHRIS GREIG Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 11 June 2017, Chris Greig

Chris Greig first caught our attention last year with his debut EP Down The Road, which was launched with a sell-out show in Edinburgh’s Mash House.


The impressive collection of songs clearly demonstrated his potential as a songwriter and this has been further cemented by having a full band to deliver his compositions.
Greig has already enjoyed a spin on Radio 1 and secured support slots for local favourites Indigo Velvet and Vistas as well as American performer Tim Kasher.

Friday saw the release of Greig’s new single Railways (listen here: (http://bit.ly/chrisgreigutr) and a gig at the capital’s La Belle Angele.
With its anthemic feel and singalong chorus, it has a strong pop feel which would sit comfortably on a Radio 2 playlist. Greig and band next perform as part of King Tut’s Summer Nights Festival on 18 July.
