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 (http://bit.ly/2cb4oHC) 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. www.faitheliott.com

Modern Studies, Scotland On Sunday, 19 June 2016

Scotland On Sunday, 19 June 2016, Modern Studies

The term supergroup tends to conjure up images of self-indulgent aging rockers, usually past their sell-by date.

However, Modern Studies are the exception, bringing together the combined talents of the amazing Emily Scott, the ubiquitous Rob St John, drummer/venue manager Joe Smillie and arguably Scotland’s most prolific cellist Pete Harvey. Carried by a piano melody and Scott’s captivating vocals, the band’s debut single Ten White Horses begins as an understated joy before building into a magical climax of quirky brilliance.

The single gives a taste of Modern Studies’ debut album, Swell To Great, which is released on Song, By Toad Records in September, and we predict it will be a contender for next year’s SAY Award.

Expect a bunch of dates to be announced soon and in the meantime listen to Modern Studies at https://modernstudiestheband.com/portfolio/sound-and-vision/
