Still working on that hot first release.



Cairn grew up playing the guitar, hooked from age 11 to the likes of Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain and Davy Graham through his Mother's hippie influence. After finishing his school education, he has honed his songwriting and guitar playing craft through countless concerts and travels all around Europe and beyond to form an amalgam of Mississippi-Delta-Blues, Scottish-Folk Music Traditions and 60s Guitar-Band style. He writes about his experiences in love, travel, adventure and delivers these stories and snippets with refreshing guitar playing, a gustful voice and a charismatic appearance. He has played in a vast number of different places such as a waterpark in Turkey, Blues bars in Copenhagen, on the beaches of Barcelona, pool bars in France, at the tunnelbana stations of Stockholm, an Australian night club in Beijing, the Dragonfly hostel in Dali (South of China), at a 60s club in Riga, at numerous Festivals as well as numerous gigs all around the three cities he likes to call home: Hanover, Glasgow and Berlin. Here he performed at tradefairs, street parades (Pankeparcours), churches, live-venues, countless dive-bars and occasionally in the streets. He has taken inspiration and connection from each place, and each trip seeps into his music and songs.
He also runs a music night in Berlin featuring the creme de la creme of the considerable local talent in Folk and Blues music, as well as some outstanding poetry.
He is set to release his second solo album at the end of this year which is being produced by the internationally known guitar virtuoso Raoul Vignal, who also features as co-musician on the record.
Recently he has also founded the band "The Blue Bats" who are looking to record coming autumn.
