Biography

Glasgow Alt.Country, Honky Tonk band, The Scuffers, release their debut album, "The Life I've Had" on Miracle Town Records on 10th November 2007. The Scuffers take Honky Tonk Country as a base and create music which also draws upon influences from Rock n Roll, Skiffle, Folk and Gospel and mould it into their rural contemporary sound. Songwriter Gavin Wallace's distinctive lyric writing style helps to create songs which, although grounded firmly in Americana, take on a characteristically Scottish feel - Atl.Country washed down with Irn-Bru! For two years now the band has grown in size and stature and has received rave reviews wherever they have played in Glasgow, Edinburgh and beyond. Significant gigs have included Glasgow Barrowlands, The Garage and The Arches; the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in Inverness and a headline slot at Glasgow's West-End festival. The bands current line up includes Gavin Wallace (lead vocals, acoustic guitar and harmonica), Ian Fraser (Bass guitar), John Murphy (Drums), Dochan MacMillan (banjo, mandolin and dobro) and newest recruit Sara Cull (fiddle and harmony vocal). The Scuffers will launch their debut album on the 10th November with a special gig at Furry Murry's, Glasgow. Keep Scuffin'!
