"Live connection"

Finally headliners and Winners of the “Clyde 1 In Demand Band Of The Year” Little Eye took to the stage, they really had their work cut out to deliver a performance equal to the previous bands..but they certainly did not disappoint.Frontman Alan Sieczkowski brilliantly commanded the stage with an attitude that matched his amazing vocals and dished out his own unique take on some of the crowd’s favourites tracks. You could feel the love in the hall for these guys and the crowd that started the evening in good form were by now almost euphoric. It’s evident Each of the band members are completly tuned into one another and the sheer energy, enthusiasm and passsion Alan delivers with each song proves that he is completely at home on a stage. They ended their incredible set with my Favourite, Distort the Sky with Alan treating the delighted crowd to some of his stage gymnastics. Little Eye are now being co- managed by Alesha Dixon and her Manager Malcolm Blair and are gaining considerable recognition and following up and down the country.
Four very different bands with four very different musical styles, who collectively entertained their elated fans to potentially headlining performances, which they are all more than capable of, in their own right. Each are top class bands with quality live performances, that are worthy of being named among the best in the Scotish music scene. It was a truly memorable night and I don’t believe anybody left the gig disappointed. - Dunoon community radio

Well it’s quite a rare thing for me to go weak at the knees over a voice. And in recent times, it seems that nothing quite does it like a Glaswegian accent for me. First it happened after hearing what's now one of my favourite albums of the year so far, 'Free' by Twin Atlantic and now from alternative, power-pop group Little Eye. Since being formed last year by frontman Allan Sieczkowski, they have been working on their debut album which is coming this summer. In the mean time they have teased us with a couple of music videos, one in particular which has clocked up over 40,000 hits on YouTube. The video in question is a brilliant live acoustic performance of Britney Spears’ recent hit “Hold It Against Me”. I’ll go into more detail on that later, but for now I’m focusing on their latest single “Burgundy Sky”, a promotional song for the Colorado Rapids soccer team.

Now you’re probably thinking eh? How does a Scottish band end up penning a tune for an American sports team? Well it’s because Allan’s brother-in-law is ex-Celtic player Jamie Smith who is now part of the Colorado Rapid’s team (as their striker). Hence the link is explained. And so Little Eye, completed by bassist Nigel Dunn, guitarists Euan Malloch and Jamie Duffin and drummer Jay Hepburn, will be playing the track at the team’s home stadium later this year. As with any other motivational sporting theme song, it has the uplifting lyrics and sing-a-long choruses. However even without the “Colorado!” chanting chorus, it would still stand as a really strong and solid single.



That particular heart-warming accent I mentioned earlier glides in and out of sections smoothly and effortlessly; Allan singing with passion and heart, “We defied all the odds, we stuck to our game. We stood our own ground, we made history”. As slightly cheesy as the lyrics may be, the music and its structure is mature enough to give young bands like You Me At Six a run for their money. A strong intro with a driving bass-line and pounding drumming isn’t overshadowed by the vocals; every instrument having a chance to shine. The particularly lively guitar parts through the choruses are a really nice touch and remind me of one of Kings Of Leon’s more summery numbers.


After the catchy official number, I can talk more about the unique B-side of the Britney Spears cover. Popular American pop-punkers All Time Low also recently covered the track for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. Now despite being around for nearly eight years and with (almost) four albums under their belt, it’s clear that the young stars’ version has failed to generate the same buzz as the relatively new and local Little Eye. Their version is a stripped down, intimately deep affair which is neither obvious nor boring. Opening like Genesis’ classic “I Can’t Dance”, the short and sharp acoustic chords are accompanied by simple rhythmic tapping before Allan’s charm steps forward.


It almost sounds like a completely different track; a sure sign that they’ve not just done the song justice, but that it sounds even better than the original. There’s no question that leading man Allan is easy on the (little) eye, but the combination of his distinctive, sultry tone and the song’s flirty nature makes it like one long and lingering pick-up line! I can’t help but giggle through the soft and distant piano chords when straight-faced he croons “Pop it like a hood and show me how you work it out!” through the breakdown. It’s a winning situation where less is proven to be definitely more; one of the best covers I have heard in recent years.

With “Burgundy Sky” generating major radio play across the seas, I’m sure it won’t be long before it's more than Colorado who are fans of these Scots. I look forward to hearing the album, hopefully proving that their original material is just as strong as their covered classics. They have a beautifully shot video for last year’s “Potential Future Adventures”, which sounds like an omen in itself. If their passion and drive (as well as YouTube hits) stays at these heights, they’ll be one to watch this year for sure.

Little Eye hail from Glasgow so it's no surprise, perhaps, that their music comes with a tough exterior wrapped around a tender heart. This track, "First Flight", is an energetic burst of bop bop that is just made for the mosh pit. However, I think they will pick up fanboys and fangirls alike with their sweet songs and a very gentle touch in the arrangements. It's what pop really should be about. Music to dance to, music to hold hands by and music to grow up with.This is dynamic stuff that understands the rules of economy and that brevity is the soul of wit. They will be touring next year and their following can only grow if the are offering such polished material on their first recordings. - Sorify.com

Little Eye Interview
Posted in Entertainment, Music, Scotland by daliakvd

Heya guys,

Little Eye

Hopefully the winter is finally over as the sun came out and all the snow have finally melted down. With all the warmth I have some good news, remember the band I scribbled about earlier, Little Eye? Well, they were very nice and answered some questions I sent them over, I hope you will check it out!

So how did the band came about? Did you know each other for a long time?

We basically all met in Glasgow, I was looking for Musicians & was lucky to find the boys very quickly! We have only known each other for about 2 years!

Have you been busy lately?

We have been so busy touring & recording our debut album down in London!

I heard you guys been at Britain’s Got Talent audition. How did that go? Was it hard to perform in front of judges and waiting for the feedback?

It was a great experience playing for the judges at Britain’s Got Talent and getting amazing feedback and a standing ovation but we decided to pull out the competition after getting through as we felt it wasn’t right for us, great fun though.

Where do you imagine the band being after a year?

We hope to be playing to as many people as we can with our album out touring it.

If you could choose any musician, dead or alive, to have a dinner with, who would you choose?

We would all chose Jimmi Hendrix, what a guy!

And the last, what would you like to say to your fans?

We love all our fans so so much & they are the reason we are still doing this! They are Little Eye.

Thanks again for Little Eye, for answering the questions! If you like the them here’s their Twitter and Facebook. They’re truly a great band and I feel very lucky I discovered them. Check them out!

Hope you enjoy! - dalia media

"Little Eye, King Tuts"

hen came the moment I was waiting for! LITTLE EYE! Tonight saw the band as a 4 piece, 3 of which are the main bulk of the band. Now for two of these guys playing gigs is nothing because they’re two pretty big session players but for the band, this gig was huge! Only two songs in and I was saying that it was going to be a night I wouldn’t forget.

One thing I love seeing in a band is a passion and a deep love for music, this band had it nailed! At some points all the band had huge smiles on their faces. Especially when the crowd were singing their songs, I admit I may have been one of them... DON’T JUDGE!

They ended their gig with ‘Remember Yesterday’ and I found myself absolutely losing it! I had at that point I thought kept some composure, my friends may think differently. During the last song Allan, the lead singer, introduced the band and by eck did they introduce themselves. Each member of the band doing the mighty ‘Bass Face’ and loving the crowd going nuts for them! Rightly so the Lead singer stood on the barrier and you could tell he loved it by again the huge smile on his face.

We were left in the darkness with just a stage full of instruments and discarded beer bottles. Were we satisfied? No we were not! Like a newly married couple we couldn’t get enough of them. A small chant of encore began, it gradually got louder and louder and the band came running back on! I thought it was strange for an unsigned band to get the all mighty call back, but they did! The ending came like a tragic ending in a novel, we knew it had to arrive at some point. This time we understood that it really was the end, this time we were a little more satisfied with ringing in our ears and our hearts beating hard. We walked out in utter disbelief at just how good they were.

This band, Little Eye, have only been in the industry together less than a year but watch this space, they are going to be huge! - never enough notes

Little Eye + Supporting Acts ????
By Gig'd Oot Ma Nut

King Tuts, Glasgow
26/01/12

Supporting Acts:

The Alter-Natives
Waiting For Go
__________________________

The first act on stage were a 4 piece indie/rock band named “The Alter-Natives”. Their 30 minute set consisted of many original songs including their newest single ” Mistakes Don’t Understate” which proved to be a great hit with the crowd, helped by the catchy, relatable lyrics. A good cover of “My Hero” by the Foo Fighters was also performed during the set which enabled many of the crowd to sing along, creating a good atmosphere within the room. With this being one of the bands first gigs, it was evident that they lacked confidence on the night however with a bit more experience, I’m certain they will improve greatly.

Next up was a 5 piece Indie/Rock Glaswegian band named “Waiting For Go”. Having previously seen them perform in December ( read the review here ) , I was eager to see if the band would maintain their great enthusiasm that was evident in their last performance. And I was nothing short of impressed. The band appeared on stage to open their 30 minute set with original songs such as “Conflicted Hearts” and “Stay”. These were clearly a huge crowd pleaser with so many people singing and dancing along to every song. A great atmosphere was present throughout the room, as the band performed further songs including ” What’s It Gonna Be”, “Believe Me” and the ever popular, “On The DanceFloor”. Chants of “Here we f*cking go” were screamed aloud by the crowd before the band introduced their newest single “Let Go” which will be released in March. Sadly there was no crowd surfing this time around, however lead singer, Jordan Butler did wow the crowds by performing the end of the set whilst standing on top on the barrier. The bands passion for music and clear love for performing was evident throughout the set last night, I would have liked to have heard a cover song performed however it was an overall great performance, and they successfully got the crowd hyped for the main act.

Finally, Little Eye were on stage to perform a 60 minute set at the sell out gig. Having previously been voted “Winners of the “Clyde 1 In Demand Band Of The Year” and “Young Scot Best Unsigned Band”, There has been a lot of hyped surrounding them recently and last nights gig made it evident as to why. The 4 piece scottish band performed a series of original songs including “Can’t Relax” and “Remember Yesterday.” This band have a really great stage presence and created a great atmosphere throughout their performance. And with an album due out in the summer, we can only expect greater things to come from this band in the future.

An overall great gig and I’d really advise everyone to go check them all out !

I love it when bands I’m not familiar with offer up their music on a metaphorical silver platter by introducing it to me themselves. It screams conviction, shows dedication. It’s especially nice when I connect with the music. It also pisses me off, just a little, that I didn’t already know about a specific artist but with the world of music being an infinite mass comprised of infinite individualities of sound that includes good, bad and mediocre it’s obviously not a feasible fantasy…to hear every song ever created. There is nothing mediocre about Little Eye or their “alternative/rock/powerpop” style. They are currently based out of Glasgow, Scotland. Members include Allan Sieczkowski (vocals), Euan Malloch (guitar/backing vocals), Jay Hepburn (drums) and Marcus Cordock (bass). Little Eye won ‘Clyde 1 In Demand Band of the Year’, has a debut album due out in early 2014 plus a recently released debut single entitled ‘Choked Up’. They’ve also covered some hits by popular artists, including Paramore’s ‘Monster’. The studio session video for that song was featured on Fueled by Ramen.com and is fast approaching 250k views with no hint of an end in sight. I listened to the ‘Monster’ cover first and was mesmerized by the vocals. It kicks other covers to the curb and with no disrespect intended to Paramore, is at least, equal to their original in my opinion. Straight off they reminded me somewhat of South Africa’s Civil Twilight, whose song ‘Letters From the Sky’, I would love to hear them cover. Next I checked out the official video for ‘Choked Up’. The visuals and instrumentals are very nicely paired with an emotional deliverance of vocals that pull you inside the lyrics and hold your attention with completely satisfying tones. Little Eye also did a series of studio and session videos featuring originals and covers while showcasing some of Scotland’s best locations as well as the urban streets of New York. Deciding which video to share was next to impossible as they are all so good. I finally decided on ‘Ruins’ because it’s shot so well, I love the song, and Little Eye is present in its entirety.

I highly recommend you check out more or all of their videos as they are visually stunning and songs that, once in your head, won’t let go. I think seeing these guys perform live would be amazing. Allan shared a bit of exclusive information and shared that they would be announcing dates and locations for a UK tour soon. Bottom line… Little Eye is going to be huge. With over 30k facebook fans www.facebook.com/littleEyeOfficial they are already making their mark in the music world but I predict it’s only the beginning for these guys from Glasgow. www.twitter.com/iamlittleye, www.littleyeband.com - Muen magazine

In Conversation with Little Eye

By Sabrina Hutchison.

littleye2

Little Eye is a talented five-piece power pop band from Glasgow. Lead singer Allan Sieczkowski’s captivating Scottish accent making them a force to be reckoned with. After accumulating over an impressive 700,000 views on YouTube due to their unique covers ranging from Rihanna, Paramore and Katy Perry gaining them a lot of recognition and fans. Their cover of Paramore’s ‘Monster’ received acknowledgment from the acclaimed record label FBR, and even Hayley Williams herself. They have recently released their debut single ‘Choked Up’. With an album in the pipeline I cant wait to see what this band gets up to next. Luckily, I had the pleasure of meeting these lovely lads and asking them a few questions.

Sabrina Hutchison: You guys have racked up an impressive amount of views on YouTube, what has been your favorite song to cover so far?

Little Eye: As a band it has to be the Paramore cover. The response we got from that was amazing and we are all huge fans of the band, so for them to blog about it was a great moment for us.

SH: Your debut single Choked Up is out now – what is it about?

LE: The track is mainly about wanting a person, or a situation, away from you. Even though you care about whatever it may be, you know the two just aren’t good for each other. We try and have a universal appeal in our songs so people can take them whichever way they choose.

littleye1

SH: You have just come off a mini UK tour, do you miss home when you’re on the road?

LE: Yeh I guess we do miss home, but gigging every night makes it easier because its what we love to do, we are all pretty chilled out guys on tour.

SH: Have you got any funny tour stories?

LE: I’m afraid we have no Rock & Roll stories for you, but we do love to have a laugh on tour and we are constantly pranking one another.

SH: What’s to come for Little Eye?

LE: We have an album coming out next year also loads of more dates! We are just hope to be able to keep on gigging and to keep playing to as many people as we can!.

Little Eye is a talented five-piece power pop band from Glasgow. Lead singer Allan Sieczkowski’s captivating Scottish accent making them a force to be reckoned with. After accumulating over an impressive 700,000 views on YouTube due to their unique covers ranging from Rihanna, Paramore and Katy Perry gaining them a lot of recognition and fans. Their cover of Paramore’s ‘Monster’ received acknowledgment from the acclaimed record label FBR, and even Hayley Williams herself. They have recently released their debut single ‘Choked Up’. With an album in the pipeline I cant wait to see what this band gets up to next. Luckily, I had the pleasure of meeting these lovely lads and asking them a few questions.

Sabrina Hutchison: You guys have racked up an impressive amount of views on YouTube, what has been your favorite song to cover so far?

Little Eye: As a band it has to be the Paramore cover. The response we got from that was amazing and we are all huge fans of the band, so for them to blog about it was a great moment for us.

SH: Your debut single Choked Up is out now – what is it about?

LE: The track is mainly about wanting a person, or a situation, away from you. Even though you care about whatever it may be, you know the two just aren’t good for each other. We try and have a universal appeal in our songs so people can take them whichever way they choose.

SH: You have just come off a mini UK tour, do you miss home when you’re on the road?

LE: Yeh I guess we do miss home, but gigging every night makes it easier because its what we love to do, we are all pretty chilled out guys on tour.

SH: Have you got any funny tour stories?

LE: I’m afraid we have no Rock & Roll stories for you, but we do love to have a laugh on tour and we are constantly pranking one another.

SOUNDCHECK: LITTLE EYE
SOUNDCHECK gives you insight into the best of the best up-and-coming acts from around the world.

LITTLE EYE

Allan Sieczkowski – Singer/Songwriter
Jay Hepburn – Drummer
Ewan Malloch – Guitar/Backing Vocals
Nigel Dunn – Bass

Together since: 2010
Based out of: Glasgow, Scotland

INK: Why did you decide to start Little Eye?
ALLAN: I started writing my own songs on an acoustic guitar and always felt they had to sound bigger. I was curious of getting a band together because I felt I had something different to share with people and wanted to let people hear my stories.

I: How would you describe your music?
A: We are listed as Powerpop, Rock. I feel we cover a lot of different styles and have our own unique thing going on. I like to let people listen and come up with their own opinion on what we do.

I: If your band was a food, what would it be and why?
A: Hmmmm, I feel like I should give a really smart, quirky answer, but I think we would have to be a banana, full of energy and doesn’t try and be something it’s not. A banana IS a banana!

I: What are some of your guilty pleasures?
A: I personally love chocolate, like it’s an obsession! Not the best for a singer. One other thing I’m addicted to is movies, I have to watch one every night before I go to bed, can’t get enough of them!


Check out Little Eye’s rockin’ cover of Britney Spear’s “Hold it Against Me.”

I: On a world tour, which musicians – dead or alive – would you be found performing with?
A: It might sound very random but I would loved to have toured with Micheal Jackson! He was the ultimate performer in my eyes!

I: Describe each member of your band with a word.
A: Nigel – Calm……
Allan – Hyper……….
Jay – Curious (Like a cat)
Ewan – Warm

I: What would you most likely get arrested for on the road?
A: I feel this is when I should say something really rock and roll but to be honest it would most likely be something like breach of the peace and being too loud! After too much sugar.

I: What’s the one thing you would want people to know about your band?
A: We wrote a song For an MLS Soccer Team Called – “Burgundy Sky”


Little Eye – Burgundy Sky

I: What are you working on right now? (Tour, album, new music?)
A: We are working on releasing some singles before we release our mini album at the end of the year. We have a few more session covers coming out as well as a UK tour planned.

I: What do you hope to accomplish over the next few years?
A: We just want to keep on writing music and having as much fun as we have been doing so far. We have met some really cool people along the way and hopefully we will keep on getting the chance to play to bigger crowds as we continue.

Thanks to Little Eye for being such a good time and starting SOUNDCHECK off with a bang! For more from the band, please be sure to check them out on Facebook.

"Little Eye, Everbetter"

Little Eye, Everbetter
Written by patricia
Little Eye is a Scottish powerpop/rock band created last year by the singer and frontman Allan Sieczkowski.
The other members are Euan Malloch (guitars and backing vocals), Jay Hepburn (drums) and Ross Saunders (bass guitar).
They are the winners of Young Scot Awards on the category of Best Unsigned Band.

They've been writing and recording their debut record set to be released in 2012, which surely include the single Burgundy Sky.

They are also known for covering songs like Monster by Paramore, Part of Me by Katy Perry and Hold It Against Me by Britney Spears.

Everbetter is a song based on Dexter Morgan from the series Dexter - but a lot of other impressions can be taken from the lyrics.
According to Allan, the words "All these troubles /There leaving your had for another night" taken from the song "Basically states how sometimes people can be under so much stress, worry, pain, heartache in life that the only way to escape is to try and drift off to another world, say in a dream or pretend that the world is not real sometimes, but when you wake up in the morning the reality id that its all real."


Everbetter is the first of many videos to be part of what Little Eye called Summer Sessions - where they will perform several songs from different parts of Scotland. This version of Everbetter was filmed in Aberfoyle and directed by Drew John Barnes.


Follow this band on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. It's really worth it!

CARRICK drummer Jay Hepburn is going both east and west as his band, Little Eye, continue to gain international recognition ahead of the release of their first album.

The band are heading for stadium gigs in China and the US this year, but fans in Carrick can see them much closer to home next week as the band are playing at King Tut’s in Glasgow on Thursday, January 26.

The band, managed by Strictly Come Dancing star Alesha Dixon and Scot, Malcolm Blair, were invited out to the US after the Colorado Rapids soccer team adopted one of their songs as their anthem.

It all came about as singer Alan Sieczkowski’s brother, ex-Celtic and Aberdeen star Jamie Smith, played for the Rapids last year as they won the American MLS cup final against David Beckham’s LA Galaxy.

Alan was at that match and wrote a song about the experience called ‘Burgundy Sky’ which has since been adopted by the club as their anthem.

The band have now been invited to play live at the club’s stadium later this year.

The Chinese ex-Factor winner, Li Shangshang, also met the band in London recently and has invited them to Beijing to play a stadium concert with her.

Tickets to see Little Eye at King Tut’s can be obtained through Ticketmaster or from King Tut’s.

Band Review-Little Eye
Hey, I'm writing into you about unsigned bands...


Recently I've been getting into more and more unsigned bands & support acts..and have found/seen so many Amazing bands.
I think it's a shame that they don't get more recognition for what they do and for how hard they work..
I also think that magazines like yourself don't have an area or bigger area in your magazine for unsigned or upcoming acts...(dates for gigs & links on how to find them etc)
When there are so many awesome unsigned bands out there. I think it's time to stop sweeping them under the carpet and notice them more....! ;D


(As I'm homeschooled and have a big interest in bands and the band industry my homeschooling Welfare/home educator officer has said that I need to get out there and learn more about it by gigging and getting up and asking stuff,I've been to soundchecks talked to bands, producers,photographers and interviewers.It's Amazing how much I've learnt from it all and have taught people...my homeschooling officer also said I need to write it up and what better way to do that then to write off to you!)
Over the time that I've been giging and watching unsigned/support acts I've seen to be honest some not so good bands and some truly amazingly awesome bands...

And I'd love to share them With you!

And the one I've picked first is a
band called Little eye from glasgow!
Genre:Alternative / Rock / Power-pop
Members:
Allan Sieczkowski - Vocals
Euan Malloch - leads Guitarist /Backing Vocals
Jay Hepburn - Drums
Ross Saunders - Bass
Jamie Duffin - Rhythm Guitarist/Backing Vocals

(The band was formed last year by Glasgow singer/front man Allan Sieczkowski. Since then, they have been writing and recording their debut album soon to be released summer 2012. Burgundy Sky is the first of two singles to be released from the album. The band have also filmed various session music videos All receiving thousands of hits on YouTube)


Allan Sieczkowski - (Vocals) has recently said to me that" Euan,Jay and myself are the face of Little Eye ...you'll always find us at the gigs" but When they need other band members they use people they know and trust...like James Duffin ( rhythms guitarist) who your also find does the mixing on most bands tracks in glasgow!
All the members are amazingly in 2 or more bands! These guys are truly talented if you ask me..

I've been following/supporting them since march last year and we are now regulars to their gigs..as we(me and my mum) travel up for Shropshire to see them in Glasgow which is a 8 to 9 hour journey on the train.. But they are so worth the journey! We've been to see them play in Stereo, Glasgow which was the first of many gigs and it was Amazing . We've also seen them play an acoustic set up in Kirkcaldy ....I'd never seen an acoustic set before and was shocked by the pure beauty of the sound...that was also the gig where I learnt what a cajon (acoustic drum box) was! and Euan the bands lead guitarist showed me how it works "there's a hole in the back which a microphone goes in and it picks up what Jay (the bands drummer) plays...!"

In the time we've been following/supporting them they've
Won the likes of "The Young Scott Awards" which got them picked up
By their Co-manager Malcolm Blair. And "Clyde 1 In Demand Band Of The Year". and have recently been nominated for Best Rock/Metal alternative at SAMA and voting starts as of next week!
And the awards take place/announced 1st March 2012.To which I have been invited (with my Mum) to attend by the events organiser. (we have standard tickets,but my mum is trying to get VIP so we can meet these bands)



On the 26th of January 2012 we went up to see them play their first headline show in KingTuts which was a sellout gig!
They blasted the show off with their new and unheard before song called PANIC! Which was an instant hit with the fans.. But is very different from most their songs! They quickly moved on to play,Potential future adventures ...& Ever better..
The next song was just mind-blowingly good...as Jamie D (Rhythms guitarist) sits down on a fold up chair with an electric guitar strapped over his shoulder and tuning in an acoustic guitar on his lap...you know your in of a treat!


As the first cords of the acoustic guitar fill up the room fans quickly grab their cameras to capture the first time "I can't relax" had ever be played LIVE...as the last of the acoustic cords ring to an end Jamie D (Rhythms guitarist) quickly makes the SWITCH by whipping off the acoustic guitar and jumping back into the song as, (the drums kick off) on an electric guitar..truly stunning!
They went onto play , "The fate of us,Cold Warrior" and started to slow it down with a sad song but with an up tempo beat "First flight&quo - Beth mcfarlane

LITTLE EYE | KING TUT'S | GIG REVIEW & INTERVIEW
by Marc McAllister

So, I've been hearing a lot about the up and coming Scottish Alternative Power-pop Rock group 'Little Eye' from a lot of different sources. The four-piece band, started by main vocalist Allan Sieczkowki, were winners of the 'Clyde 1 In-Demand Band of The Year' not to mention winning Best Unsigned Band at the 'Young Scot Awards'. The band have also been getting some attention from the US due to a recent session video they shot in New York. Not bad for a band that formed very little over a year ago. When I was asked to attend the band's recent gig at 'King Tuts' I was a little hesitant because to be honest this isn't the style I would normally go for. So I went based on the fact that 'King Tuts' is a great venue but I am glad I went as I was well surprised by the performance.

On the night of the gig I was still stuffed from Burns supper the night before and was in need of a cameraman. So after a few phone calls I managed to bribe my old school friend Hush to being camera-man for just one pint of King Tuts own 'West King Tuts Beer' which is well worth the extra coinage for just the taste. So me and Hush had our pint then met up with 'Little Eye' Manager Malcolm Blair who escorted us both to the top floor of 'Tuts' where the band were all hanging out just having a laugh after they had finished sound-check. I introduced myself to the whole band only to realise that I recognised Frontman Allan from when he worked in 'Bean-scene' in the South-Side a few years earlier, Allan joked that he can still whip up an amazing Latte. As well as Manager Malcolm and Frontman Allan we also interviewed Guitarist Euan Malloch, Drummer Jay Hepburn and Bassist Ross Saunders. This is what they had to say:

How did the band meet up?
ROSS: Match.com (Band laughs)
ALLAN: Well I was doing some acoustic work and with the help of my friend who was also a Producer we got the band together.

Where are you all from?
ALLAN: Well as you know the South-Side.
ROSS: East Kilbride
JAY: Ayrshire
ALLAN: Aye and Euan is from Kirkintilloch
EUAN: Aye am a Kirky boy
JAY: Don't be so proud of that
(Band laughs)

Who are your biggest musical influences?
ALLAN: Well my biggest is definitely 'Paramore' but these 2 are more the 'John Mayer' type (pointing at Jay and Euan who both nod in agreement)
ROSS: Venga Boys (Band Laughs) Kidding I am more of a Meshuggah type of guy.

Do the band have any traditions before a gig?
ALLAN: Ehhhhhhh I would say Stay Sober, hug it out out and drive safe (Jay Giggles)

Have you been starting to recognise fan faces at shows?
ALLAN: Yes we have which has been scary!

What was your favourite song of last year?
ALLAN: I would say 'Limp Bizkit- Boiler', I know that it wasn't released last year but it was the first time I heard it. Either that or 'Rebecca Black- Friday'.

Did any of you have a traditional Burns Supper last night?
ALLAN: No, I had a curry.
ROSS: Nah, Pasta
EUAN: Yeah I actually ended up having two.
JAY: I actually just had a Haggis Supper fae a chippy but I also managed to get lucky with a young lady, Rabbie Burns could've written a poem about that (Band Laugh)

Are you fans of Rabbie Burns Poetry?
JAY: I am defo a big fan. (The rest of the band shrug)

If the band were trapped in a situation were they were forced to play Russian Roulette until there was one left alive, who do you think would win?
(The band all really think about that one)
MALCOLM: It would be me! (Band laughs)
ALLAN: Yeah I would say it would be Malcolm

Well Malcolm as the winner of Russian Roulette would you eat the losers for a laugh?
MALCOLM: Nah I am not a Vegetarian and wouldn't eat these vegetables! (Band Laughs)

It was at this time the bands Producer and on stage Guitarist Jamie Duffin entered the room whom I had also recognised from the South side. Jamie is from a very talented musical family and I have seen him perform in lots of different bands plus bumped into him at his cousins wedding, it really is a small Glasgow.

How did you come up with the name 'LITTLE EYE'?
ALLAN: Well I used to be in a band called 'Room to Let' but I hated the name so when I was coming up with this bands name I took my time and thought about the beauty of creating using ones Little Eye and that was it basically!

ROSS: Penis (Band Laugh)

I heard you met Alesha Dixon at the Scots awards how was that and also how was America?
ALLAN: We actually met Alesha because Malcolm is also her manager and she was really nice but we weren't in America!

JAMIE: Yes you were, for that video!

ALLAN: OH yeah we were, New York of course, yeah it was great (Band Laughs)

It was then I wrapped up the interview and wished the band luck on the show. So then me and my trusty cameraman Hush ha - Flicker magazine

The band have also been getting some attention from the US due to a recent session video they shot in New York. Not bad for a band that formed very little over a year ago. When I was asked to attend the band's recent gig at 'King Tuts' I was a little hesitant because to be honest this isn't the style I would normally go for. So I went based on the fact that 'King Tuts' is a great venue but I am glad I went as I was well surprised by the performance.

On the night of the gig I was still stuffed from Burns supper the night before and was in need of a cameraman. So after a few phone calls I managed to bribe my old school friend Hush to being camera-man for just one pint of King Tuts own 'West King Tuts Beer' which is well worth the extra coinage for just the taste. So me and Hush had our pint then met up with 'Little Eye' Manager Malcolm Blair who escorted us both to the top floor of 'Tuts' where the band were all hanging out just having a laugh after they had finished sound-check. I introduced myself to the whole band only to realise that I recognised Frontman Allan from when he worked in 'Bean-scene' in the South-Side a few years earlier, Allan joked that he can still whip up an amazing Latte. As well as Manager Malcolm and Frontman Allan we also interviewed Guitarist Euan Malloch, Drummer Jay Hepburn and Bassist Ross Saunders. This is what they had to say:

How did the band meet up?
ROSS: Match.com (Band laughs)
ALLAN: Well I was doing some acoustic work and with the help of my friend who was also a Producer we got the band together.

Where are you all from?
ALLAN: Well as you know the South-Side.
ROSS: East Kilbride
JAY: Ayrshire
ALLAN: Aye and Euan is from Kirkintilloch
EUAN: Aye am a Kirky boy
JAY: Don't be so proud of that
(Band laughs)

Who are your biggest musical influences?
ALLAN: Well my biggest is definitely 'Paramore' but these 2 are more the 'John Mayer' type (pointing at Jay and Euan who both nod in agreement)
ROSS: Venga Boys (Band Laughs) Kidding I am more of a Meshuggah type of guy.

Do the band have any traditions before a gig?
ALLAN: Ehhhhhhh I would say Stay Sober, hug it out out and drive safe (Jay Giggles)

Have you been starting to recognise fan faces at shows?
ALLAN: Yes we have which has been scary!

What was your favourite song of last year?
ALLAN: I would say 'Limp Bizkit- Boiler', I know that it wasn't released last year but it was the first time I heard it. Either that or 'Rebecca Black- Friday'.

Did any of you have a traditional Burns Supper last night?
ALLAN: No, I had a curry.
ROSS: Nah, Pasta
EUAN: Yeah I actually ended up having two.
JAY: I actually just had a Haggis Supper fae a chippy but I also managed to get lucky with a young lady, Rabbie Burns could've written a poem about that (Band Laugh)

Are you fans of Rabbie Burns Poetry?
JAY: I am defo a big fan. (The rest of the band shrug)

If the band were trapped in a situation were they were forced to play Russian Roulette until there was one left alive, who do you think would win?
(The band all really think about that one)
MALCOLM: It would be me! (Band laughs)
ALLAN: Yeah I would say it would be Malcolm

Well Malcolm as the winner of Russian Roulette would you eat the losers for a laugh?
MALCOLM: Nah I am not a Vegetarian and wouldn't eat these vegetables! (Band Laughs)

It was at this time the bands Producer and on stage Guitarist Jamie Duffin entered the room whom I had also recognised from the South side. Jamie is from a very talented musical family and I have seen him perform in lots of different bands plus bumped into him at his cousins wedding, it really is a small Glasgow.

How did you come up with the name 'LITTLE EYE'?
ALLAN: Well I used to be in a band called 'Room to Let' but I hated the name so when I was coming up with this bands name I took my time and thought about the beauty of creating using ones Little Eye and that was it basically!

ROSS: Penis (Band Laugh)

I heard you met Alesha Dixon at the Scots awards how was that and also how was America?
ALLAN: We actually met Alesha because Malcolm is also her manager and she was really nice but we weren't in America!

JAMIE: Yes you were, for that video!

ALLAN: OH yeah we were, New York of course, yeah it was great (Band Laughs)

It was then I wrapped up the interview and wished the band luck on the show. So then me and my trusty cameraman Hush ha - Flicker magazine

LITTLE EYE

Introducing LITTLE EYE, Scotland’s hottest new pop/rock act. Formed in 2011 by singer/songwriter Allan Sieczkowski, Little Eye are starting to make big noises in the music industry.

Allan was playing around Glasgow with his first band as a drummer, before deciding that his real passion lay in songwriting. He wrote his first song after visiting his sister and brother in law in Colorado where his brother in law plays professional football for MSL team Colorado Rapids. Allan wrote “ Burgundy Sky” as a rousing anthem, which was quickly adopted by the team and is played in the stadium before every game to get the fans hyped up before a match.

On his return to the UK, he started to write more songs and eventually hooked up with a young up and coming producer with whom he wrote a number of other songs. One of these songs “ Potential future adventures “ was entered into the Sunday Mail, Young Scots “ best unsigned act” competition and out of hundreds of entries, Little Eye was eventually chosen to be a finalist. Voting for this was open to Listeners of “ In demand radio “ and Little Eye were crowned winners at the Young Scot awards that same year.

Whilst collecting their award they attracted the attention of Alesha Dixon (singer, dancer and TV Judge ) and her manager Malcolm Blair. They both loved the song and the band and soon a management contract was secured. Malcolm then introduced the band to producer/ Musician Geoff Dugmore, a fellow scot and one of the UK’s top session drummers, having played on over 50 no 1 hits. Under the guidance of Malcolm and Geoff, the band decamped to Kore Studios in London and set about recording their debut album, an album brimming with massive anthems and hooks laden songs, that will tear at your heartstrings, whilst blowing you away with their unique sound.

The band then embarked on a UK tour to road test the songs to great response, and followed that up with a 4 week long acoustic tour of schools in Scotland.

The band placed some of their unique cover versions of great songs such as Paramore’s “ Monster” , Rhianna’s “ Where have you been “ Katy Perry’s “ Part of me”on You Tube . These covers attracted a whole new worldwide fan base and they’re you tube hits are now close on to 1 million and over 30,000 Facebook likes.

Their acoustic cover of Monster was watched by Paramore themselves, and they loved it so much they featured it on their home page.

Their debut single “ Choked Up “ was mixed by Ray Hedges, again a top producer with over 60 top 10 singles under his belt and has all the ingredients of a worldwide radio hit. The song is already racking up radio play in France and Europe and is now playlisted on several European radio stations

The band, made up of vocalist Allan Seiczkowski, Guitarist Euan Malloch, drummer Jay Hepburn and bass player Marcus Cordock have spent the last year perfecting their songs and musicianship and have developed into a truly amazing live act, as witnessed by their recent sell out show at Glasgow’s ABC, the show sold out in 3 days without any advertising other than social media.

The band are now preparing to release an Ep in August this year, again produced by Geoff Dugmore and mixed this time by the incredible Ash Howes, Ash’s CV speaks for itself as he has mixed most of the big radio records in the last 10 years, including Texas, One Direction, Dido and many many others.
