“Ruthie Collins wears her heart on her sleeve and pretty much always has a sparkle in her eyes. Raised on a farm in Fredonia, NY, Ruthie blends the vulnerable, the volatile and the serene in her music.
As demonstrated on her debut album, ‘Get Drunk And Cry’ and her recently released second, ‘Cold Comfort’, her songs straddle the line between Americana, bluegrass and modern country, upheld by buoyant and agile vocals reminiscent of her musical icons, Patty Griffin and Emmylou Harris.”
Chris Mossop is a Scottish singer/songwriter, who has had a blend of comparisons made of him ranging from Damien Rice to Bruce Springsteen and even David Gray. He has one of those distinct voices that fully engages the audience and his tone is heartfelt and surprisingly disarming. No wonder that Jason Rosman of BBC London Radio describes his music as “stunning”, while Forth One Radio say that he is “definitely one to watch”.
17 year-old Contemporary Country singer-songwriter, Megan Louise, from Merseyside, released her debut single called ‘Train Song’ (on MLB Records) in August 2018 to great success and critical acclaim, going straight in to the UK iTunes Country Chart at number 3. Megan Louise has performed live sets and been interviewed on many of the biggest National/Regional radio stations in the UK, including BBC Radio 2, Under the Apple Tree Sessions with “Whispering Bob Harris” and Chris Country.
Scottish born singer songwriter Sandy McLelland released his very successful new album ‘Cross The Line on 18th September. 2019. The music in ‘Cross the Line’ is unashamedly rooted in the American country, blues, folk and soul music he absorbed in his early days in Glasgow. In addition to being a three-time Grammy winner, Sandy has won many awards during his long and illustrious career. Often full and vibrant, sometimes achingly bare and personal, Sandy is capable and comfortable across many, diverse, musical styles, always with a highly personal core.
