----- artist info --------

RACHEL SERMANNI
The music of Folk-Noir Balladeer, Rachel Sermanni, has the flesh of Folk but, if you were to cut the skin, youd find it pumped with contemporary, genre blended blood.
In 2011, Rachel Sermanni released her first EP, The Bothy Sessions, recorded quite spontaneously, deep in a Highland forest with 10 friends. Soon to follow came the studio EP, Black Currants. And on the 12th September 2012, Rachels debut Album, Under Mountains, was set free into the ether.
In March 2014, hiding in the sticks of Nova Scotia, Rachel sowed the seeds of her latest creation. Tied to The Moon is Rachels sophomore studio album. It was released in July 2015 to wide spread critical acclaim. The songs follow the theme of being Like a Moth; of being in darkness but drawn to the flame. To hear it is to take a walk in the moonlight.

Minimal, Murky, Magnificent  MOJO

Unnervingly pretty and graceful  NME

Stately, Poetic, Rooted in the Traditional  CLASH

A beautiful record, so full of intricacies that it continues to reward with every listen, allows you to lose yourself in its stories  The Line of Best Fit

SOLAREYE
Dealing in grim fairytales and unlikely truths, at once home-grown and universal, Solareye is best known as the lyricist and principal songwriter with alternative hip-hop group Stanley Odd. With Stanley Odd, Solareye has toured extensively throughout the UK and around the globe. The band's second studio album 'Reject' was shortlisted for Scottish Album of the Year 2013 and third album, 'A Thing Brand New', was placed at No.2 in the Herald's Best Scottish Albums of 2014. His music has been featured on BBC Radio and Television, RTÉ2, CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), ARD Germany and many others. His written poetry has been published in a range of publications including Gutter Magazine and Neu! Reekie!'s #UntitledTwo anthology.

BEST GIRL ATHLETE
Following the success of debut, Carve Every Word, in 2015, Katie Buchan  aka Best Girl Athlete  returns with new album  the self-titled Best Girl Athlete out on Fitlike Records.
By the age of sixteen years, Katie Buchan had already toured the U.S and Europe and released an album that was nominated for a Scottish Alternative Music Award. Carve Every Word was named the second best Scottish album of 2015 by Ravechild and received acclaim from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Clash Magazine, Folk Radio, Artrocker, The Sunday Herald and BBC Radio Scotlands Vic Galloway and Roddy Hart. One can only imagine what the future will bring for this young artist, but it looks certain that this innovative new album is sure to propel her even further forward.
