LAURENCE MADE ME CRY Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 7 August 2016, Laurence Made Me Cry

Laurence Made Me Cry is the songstress, artist and multi-instrumentalist Jo Whitby, who is based between Glasgow and the Highlands.

We first encountered LMMC’s electronica folk at the XpoNorth Festival in June, and witnessed another impressive set on the XpoNorth Seedlings stage at the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.

Whitby has been picking up plays from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Vic Galloway and Roddy Hart on BBC Radio Scotland, Amazing Radio and has supported artists like Gulp and Rae Spoon. The artist was also nominated for a Welsh Music Prize for her crowd-funded debut album ‘The Diary Of Me.’

Her latest EP, ‘Titans’ Daughters’ features collaborations with artists like Rachel Sermanni, Chrissy Barnacle and producer Simon Parton and the results are sublime.

UK and European tour dates are to be announced very soon. To listen and find out more:

The 2016 line-up for the XpoNorth Festival Seedlings Stage has been unveiled for the SOLD OUT Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival which takes place in Beauly near Inverness from 4-6 August. The line-up represents some of the most promising up and coming bands from The Highlands & Islands, the rest of Scotland and Europe. Fort William four-piece Bloodlines headline one of the days.

Edinburgh, tropical-pop quartet Indigo Velvet are also a top tip, if their debut T In The Park set on the T Break stage last weekend is any indication they’ll have a healthy crowd. Other artists we’ve covered in Scotland On Sunday and The Scotsman include; Ded Rabbit, The Lapelles, HQFU, Eleanor Nicolson, WOMPS and Be Charlotte.

The excellent lineup also includes; Crash Club, Forever, Redolent, Jointpop, Pure Grief, Charlotte Carpenter, Medicine Men, Mt. Doubt, Miracle Glass Company, ONR, American Clay, The Claramassa, Laurence Made Me Cry, The MacGills, The Begbies, This Machine, Dead Zebras and Purple Felts.
