Album Launch Special Guests : Briggs & Bradley

Very happy to announce that Chris Bradley and Riley Briggs (who are also in the band Aberfeldy), will be playing songs as their new duo Briggs & Bradley at the ‘Antidote’ album launch on 9 May!

Unearthing the forgotten mechanics of rhythm, and unpacking the mysteries of melodic invention, Briggs & Bradley invite you into their inner circle- one of pure musical intrigue. Might these two old friends have something to offer the music world once again? How would such a combination of talents sound? A new ship has set sail from Leith, loaded with vocal tricks and guitar sleight-of-hand. Here begins the story of Briggs & Bradley.

Antidote has now been released and is available in all good record shops!

This great review has just come in from Marc Higgins at Northern Sky Mag, who writes

This is a glorious album, both understated and majestic, very much a quiet storm..”

I’m looking forward to announcing the album launch date soon.

Pledge Campaign – 6 Days To Go

It is 6 days until my Pledge campaign closes! I have just reached 75% of target and looking good.  I am going to start sending pre-order CDs from Friday as I wanted everyone who has supported the project to get the album ahead of the official release date on 7 April.

It is great being an independent artist – you can just do what you like! Although sometimes things do get a bit haphazard… At times I feel like I am a one man crew on a very big ship. There are so many things to manage.

I posted this song on youtube the other day – I wrote it on a very sunny clear day and the beautiful weather over the weekend inspired me to share it :

The full album is being streamed on The Big Takeover this Friday 31 March. CDs have been sent to Proper Music to be distributed to shops, and it feels exciting to have the album go out into the world!

There is still time to support the project, just click on the link below to pre-order your copy of Antidote.





New Album News



I have reached the end of an intense 2 months recording at home and am getting ready to send tracks to Calum Malcolm to be mixed. ‘Antidote’ is my 6th album and features the amazing musicians Fiona Rutherford (harp) Lawrie Macmillan (bass) Sue McKenzie (saxphone) and Liam Bradley (drums). There are field recordings of sounds from Edinburgh city weaving in and out of the tracks, with a few experiments here and there. I have felt very free with it and it feels true to who I am. I am extremely happy with how it is sounding!

It’s £8 to pre order the digital album or £12 for the CD

To be released end of March 2017.
