FAITH ELIOTT Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 28 August 2016, Stars And Sitars

Since moving to Edinburgh ten years ago, American-born Faith Eliott has become a well-kent face in the capital’s music and artistic circles, forming part of the Far Yella Collective with stalwarts of the local scene including Neil Pennycook (Meursault/Supermoon), Withered Hand, Hailey Beavis and Rueben Taylor.

Now striking out as a solo performer, a debut EP, Insects, is released on Song, By Toad Records at the end of the month. The songs are inspired by a spell living in rural Nebraska, with several boasting a distinctly experimental approach to recording.

Pyrite Ammonite ( is a sneak preview of what lies ahead and is arguably the most original title of the year, with some endearing lyrics to match.

Faith Eliott is due to play a secret launch gig in advance of the EPs release. Keep an eye on the website for details.

Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon Scotland On Sunday, Spectrum Magazine, 16 August 2015, Supermoon [formerly Meursault]

Last summer, multi-instrumental songwriter, Neil Pennycook, retired his long-term act Meursault, took off to London and spent several months devising a new musical vehicle which he Christened SUPERMOON . A year on, he has completed recording his first album, which has seen him working with an illustrious cast of fellow musicians including the ubiquitous keyboarder Ruben Taylor, vocalist Faith Eliott and drummer Liam Chapman. Titled I Will Kill Again, it boasts a sparser sound than Pennycook’s previous work, as well as incorporating piano and female vocals. While a release has yet to be finalised, Supermoon the band play a series of shows in the coming weeks including:

Glasgow’s Hug and Pint [24 August], Edinburgh’s Summerhall [27 August], Jura Unbound at the Edinburgh International Book Festival [29 August] and Eastern Promise in Glasgow [18 September]. Expect an intense musical experience, from one of Scotland’s most distinctive artists.
