"The singer of Aberdeen indie pop band Edgar Prais has gone solo and produced some of his finest work to date. Scottish folk music has rarely sounded this good" - Nitrogen Fanzine


"Milky Yonder EP" (self-released, Mar 2009).
"Blue EP" (self-released, Apr 2009).



Having dragged my sorry arse across every inch of the UK for the past three years fronting indie-pop outfit, Edgar Prais, the hankering to return to the 60s folk music that I’d been brought up with became all encompassing. The band had a good run and during our time, we'd seen everything from the unspeakably filthy, fly-infested and completely unsanitary toilets of Liverpool’s Barfly, to the lush surroundings of a Victorian spa-resort, Strathpeffer, whilst on tour with The Kaiser Chiefs in 2008.

Ultimately, I needed to cut down my own route, off the well-beaten path and scout through the hinterlands in hope of finding something new. What exactly that something is, I haven't figured out yet; but I’ll keep at it with the vigour of an addict after the next hit.

As a lonesome singer, I approach song writing from the Dylan school of thought, where the music is primarily a vehicle for the sad-sack-drunks and broken-hearted-lovers to inhabit. That’s not to say I can’t carry a tune! Having been around all the great soul and pop records from the 60s, I have that Motown sound deep in the marrow of my bones. It’s with a keen ear for a great pop-hook and the golden age of radio that I write the majority of my melodies.

Despite my short tenure as a solo artist and despite having only just set out on this new venture, I’m proud to say that I’ve already released two EPs, both of which I recorded at my home studio. A third is due in May, along with a small tour around the country (once again!) to raise awareness. In July / August, I intend taking a small band into the studio to re-record twenty or so songs for my debut full length. It’s this prolific output that informs everything that I set out to do, in the hope of writing something I can stand behind fully.
