Grayling:

Hailing from a wee house in Bonhill, Scotland where the sounds of Queen, Carole King and Billy Joel reverberated through the walls…

Grayling grew up in a musical family however – shied away from performing and stepping into her own light until later in life. Busking on the banks of Loch Lomond saw the start of her full time music career.

Her time is now spent writing in her flat in Glasgow, leading songwriting workshops and gigging with friends and bandmates around Scotland. ‘Greenhouse’ Grayling’s first offering released in August 2022 – had a focus on getting well, growing through painful experiences and learning to care for oneself.

‘River Song’ the first single from the debut EP saw her reach new heights as it gained ‘Track of the Week’ on the Afternoon Show – BBC Radio Scotland as well as being featured on BBC Introducing Scotland.

Since then she has played sold out shows with her band in The Old Hairdressers Glasgow as well as support slots at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, The Poetry Club and The Glad Cafe supporting the likes of Charlie Hickey, The Joy Hotel and Stu Larsen.

Recently deemed one of Vic Galloway’s (BBC Scotland) ‘Ones to Watch for 2023’ – Grayling is in the midst of writing EP No.2; finding inspiration in nature, poetry and of course… heartache.

Finding peace and clarity in the catharsis of writing, Grayling hopes her music will help others find the same solace.

Rhona MacFarlane:

Scottish Singer/Songwriter Rhona Macfarlane, from the seaside town of Montrose, has the spirit of folk music running through her blood. With ancestors hailing from the remote Scottish Islands of Harris and St Kilda and growing up around the records of Joni Mitchell, John Martyn and Nick Drake it is no wonder she has been described as someone who “has the soul of someone years beyond her age”. Macfarlane holds the folk heritage of storytelling at the heart of her music but delivers it in a modern light. Embracing vulnerability and introspection, Macfarlane invites audiences on a journey of self-discovery and reflection through conveying the deepest of human emotions through her own experiences, emotions, and personal growth. Her “emotional and reflective storytelling” has been described as “casting a gentle spell over her audience” fostering a sense of shared experience and human connection. As a multi-instrumentalist she consistently makes an impact on audiences with her intricate and melodic writing. With a love of both classical and folk music, the two worlds collide creating an evocative musical landscape that has been described as “building an atmosphere of tranquillity and respite.”

Rhona released her last EP ‘Closing the Window’ in November 2021. Produced by Matt Ingram (credits Laura Marling), the EP is a collection of songs inspired by a time of inward reflection and solitude during the pandemic. A time when family and friend ties were cut and sharing music was limited.
