Biography

The Gilded Angels were formed under loud speakers in the final days of smokey Glasgow clubs, starting out with three and now numbering nine in their ranks, they are the complete 'Rolling Country Revue', digging deep to rewrite old country classics. They play Honky Tonk anthems of good times, bad times, about sweethearts and heartaches, focusing on chestnuts by the likes of Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Gram Parsons and George Jones. The Gilded Angels challenge the audience to have as much fun as they are having onstage, but at the same time they deliver musically.

Under their leather belts are a number of barnstorming live shows that include 4 sold out nights at the UK's premier country music club and venue - The Grand Ole Opry (capacity 450) . The band also followed in the footsteps of one of their idols Johnny Cash by performing at Scotland's most notorious and high security prison - Barlinnie, for 200 wildly appreciative inmates.

The Gilded Angels were also earmarked by the NME as one's to watch in their 'On Radar' section, as well as being personally invited to open for both Glasvegas and The Corb Lund Band on recent Scottish dates.

Various festival appearances and weekly and monthly residencies around their native city of Glasgow, one of which, 'Buckaroo', is an event run by the group themselves in which they play live and DJ sets of classic country, honky tonk and rockabilly, has gained the Gilded Angels the deserved reputation as one of Scotland's most promising young groups...

...Yee-haa!
