ONE OF SCOTLAND’S FINEST SONGWRITERS
John Douglas (Trashcan Sinatras) released a debut solo album on October 6th 2023.
At long last, fans and newcomers alike are treated to an intimate snapshot of the talent, charisma and depth of this celebrated Scottish indie songsmith. With this release comes the start of a new chapter in John Douglas’ creative life as he simultaneously looks back at a lifetime of musical adventures and accolades and moves forwards.
The album ‘John Douglas’ features new recordings of some of John’s favourite Traschcan Sinatras material, alongside new songs he has written and his own rendition of the Prefab Sprout classic ‘We Let The Stars Go’.
Hailing from Irvine on Scotland’s west coast, John has a rich history, making music with Trashcan Sinatras for over thirty years. Apart from his role as a songwriter (and guitarist) there, John has been playing live gigs across the UK and Ireland as part of his partner Eddi Reader’s band.
He has also been performing solo sets at shows with musical friends, such as Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), Jill Jackson and James Grant (Love & Money). Whilst visiting Irvine recently, John was invited to guest with Martin McAloon (Prefab Sprout), the two artists having first met in 1990 during Trashcan Sinatras’ ‘Jordan – The Comeback’ tour with Prefab Sprout.
