EASY Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 28 January 2018, EASY

Formed while studying at University of the West of Scotland in Ayr, Easy are a fun, eclectic-sounding five-piece now based in Glasgow.

They’ve played alongside rising Scottish acts like The Vegan Leather, Vistas and Pronto Mama, made their debut festival appearance at Party At The Palace in Linlighgow and have toured as far afield as France.

Their sound is a groove-laden, melting pot of styles, from rock and pop to funk and reggae complemented by a fine Scottish accent.

Debut single ‘Bringin’ Me Down’ is released on 9 February with a Scottish tour to coincide, visiting Dundee on 13 February, followed by Aberdeen, Stirling, Edinburgh and ending in Glasgow on 19 February.

Fans wearing a colourful / Hawaiian shirt to any show will receive a free download of their single, see and get tickets at:
