Biography

The Imagineers: Biography

Glasgow based 4-piece The Imagineers have enjoyed a very successful year since their debut gig in the spring of 2010.
The bands energetic Live shows combined with their well crafted melodies have earned them favourable reviews from national papers ‘The Daily Record’ and ‘Evening Times’ as well as mainstream radio play in Scotland and the U.S on BBC Radio 1’s Introducing with Ally McCrae and on Clyde 1 with new music DJ Jim Gellatly.

The Imagineers are known for playing to suit the atmosphere of a venue by occasionally performing stripped back acoustic sets with additional violin accompaniment from their friend Miranda Whitmarsh, 17.
The band first met Miranda by chance during the summer of 2010 as she busked outside Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens with her violin to make some extra money on a Saturday afternoon.

The bands first release, a double A-side single, featuring signature songs ‘Mariana’ and ‘Fairground’ was released on September 3rd through Independent label ‘Sunstone Records’ and digitally via ITunes.

2011 has already been busy year for The Imagineers as they began recording their debut EP in Glasgow’s renowned CaVa studios in early January with producer Brian O’Neil.
Fan favourite ‘Spanish Sands’, which appears on the EP, has been selected as their debut promotional video for the EP with the filming taking place at Ayr beach with a BBC production team.

2011 has also seen the band choose to live together in Glasgow’s Southside in order for them to focus on their song writing partnership and to increase their creative output as a whole.

The EP will be released on April the 1st 2011 in a special live home show to mark the start of the bands UK wide Spring Tour, with festival season beginning for them shortly after the tour comes to a close.
''The song that stood out is Mariana; it will appeal to the same fans that catapulted Paolo Nutini to fame''
-The Daily Record

“Honest and authentic and gave me a sonic sense of some Scottish heritage” Raul Gonzalez, The Red Door, New York City.

''Catchy melodies, tight rhythms, and harmonies with a distinctive west of Scotland twang'''
-The Evening Times
