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
