SHREDD Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 7 January 2018, Shredd

Glasgow satellite towns such as Paisley, Bellshill and Hamilton have long served as talent feeders for acts the Scottish metropolis goes on to claim as its own. In 2018 the Le Corbusier-inspired seat of learning, Cumbernauld, could soon be joining the list thanks to the self-described garage fuzz rock outfit Shredd.

The trio kicked off last year with the EP Every Time We Meet I Want To Die, which was followed by the singles Cobra and our favourite, Flight Of Stairs. Moreover, sell-out headline shows along with slots at Stag & Dagger, Tenement Trail and the BBC 6 Music Festival, led to being crowned best newcomer act at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards.

Plans are afoot to record a new EP in the spring to be followed by an album and UK tour later in the year. In the meantime, Shredd play Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s on 30 January and Glasgow’s Stereo on 16 February, listen at: https://soundcloud.com/shredd-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

Under the Radar is in association with Off Axis, a touring and gig swapping network enabling artists to play successful shows and festivals, in over 75 towns and cities across the UK register at https://whatisoffaxis.com

Scotland On Sunday, 14 May 2017, Shogun

Nineteen-year-old Joe Heron, from Paisley, AKA Shogun is one of the fastest rising stars being associated with the increasingly popular Grime genre.

The young rapper/emcee’s lyrics are sharp, perceptive and politically charged. Videos for recent tracks ‘Unrivalled’ and ‘Vulcan’ have been viewed nearly three million times on YouTube and he featured on a recent BBC documentary highlighting some of the UK’s best new artists.

He has shared a bill with acts like Lowkey and Akala, performed at Tenement TV’s Tenement Trail festival, and is set to release debut EP ‘Katana’ in the next couple of months.

See Shogun live at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton on Friday (19 May), in Bristol, Manchester and London in June and Glasgow’s ABC venue on 1 July. Watch the videos of Shogun HERE or below
