CALUM MACKENZIE JONES Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 28 May 2017, Calum Mackenzie Jones

Hailing from Moray, Calum Mackenzie Jones has packed an impressive amount of musical activity into the three years since he started playing open mic nights at the age of 13.

Drawing on folk, country, blues and Celtic rock, his debut single Your Man, picked up a spin on Jo Whiley’s Radio 2 show when it was released in February.

This followed on from a string of live slots in 2016 including XpoNorth, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, Speyfest and more. This month he released a charity single, The La La Song, which is due to be followed by a debut album, Wasted Days, on 21 June.

Get a taste of what is to come with the title track – http://bit.ly/utrcmjones on which Jones, plays every instrument (except fiddle). With bookings lined up for Eden Festival, Northern Roots, Seafest, Bootstock and Fur Folks Sake, we expect a lot more people will be hearing this promising artist in the coming months.

NOVEMBER LIGHTS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 30 October 2016, November Lights

Originally from The Three Towns area, northwest of Kilwinning, indie-pop band November Lights now live and study in Glasgow.

The young trio have supported bands like Fatherson and The LaFontaines and we first encountered them at the XpoNorth festival then again in August via youth music touring initiative Hit The Road.

Their catchy new single ’A.U.X’ is an excellent indication of what to expect from their EP ‘Talk’ due out at the end of next month.

In support of the release of th EP, the band embark on a mini-tour, performing at Cafe Drummonds in Aberdeen on 9 December at The Hug and Pint in Glasgow on 10 December and at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on 11 December. Retro Video Club and Audiokicks join them on tour.
