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.

The announcements represent a significant boost for the youth music activities carried out by the Scottish Music Centre across Scotland.

PRS Foundation’s Talent Development Partners are selected for the quality and range of opportunities they offer and the year-round impact their work is having on the music creators they support.

Help Musicians UK National Grants Programme Awardees are supported for three years. HMUK invest in organisations where innovation is supported and progressive services and opportunities for musicians are delivered.

These announcements will enable Scottish Music Centre, through their national youth music initiatives, to further nurture and develop musical talent throughout Scotland over the next three years. The additional support will be used to expand and enhance existing projects as well as creating new intensive artist development opportunities.

Scottish Music Centre currently manages two national youth music projects, mentoring initiative Music Plus+ and touring project Hit The Road

Both projects have secured performance slots and training roles at festivals including Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival and Electric Fields as well as helping emerging bands and artists gain coverage in national newspapers, radio, TV and online.

Gill Maxwell, Executive Director of the Scottish Music Centre, said,
“We are thrilled to announce Help Musicians UK is supporting Scottish Music Centre to further develop our activities throughout Scotland over the next three years. At the same time, we are delighted to become a PRS for Music Foundation Talent Development Partner.
