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.

VISTAS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 2 April 2017, Vistas

Penicuick indie-rock outfit Vistas have built up an impressive following since forming last year.

Single launches at Edinburgh’s Mash House and Electric Circus sold out and the band have been heard on Radio Scotland and Amazing Radio.

Boasting a singalong sensibility which lightly nods to The Strokes, Snow Patrol and the Arctic Monkeys, the four-piece have also been garnering interest further afield, thanks to inclusion on several highly regarded Spotify playlists. Their recent release, Feel Alive has been played more than 200,000 times, taking the total number of streams for their songs past 500,000.

Their next gig will be at Edinburgh’s Liquid Rooms on 21 April, playing our (free) Wide Days showcase (Vistas Tickets Here) along with former Under The Radar act The Vegan Leather and Declan Welsh. From our point of view Vistas are set to go far.
