Check out Glasgow’s distorted Rock Band, Junebug!
Junebug are a four piece Scottish band who have been recording original tracks since 2012. Producing a mix of distorted rock with acoustic harmonies, these guys have some real potential to be big.
Lead singer Katie Irvine’s voice echoes Florence with a splash of Blondie.
Regularly gigging in Glasgow – find these guys in King Tut’s or Nice n Sleazy’s.
I was drawn to the next two tracks, listen to both – it’s worth it!

Spot them busking on the Queens Walk or gigging in Ronnie Scotts! These guys are a treat!
I spotted Belle & the Busker in Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in Soho & ever since I’ve been keeping my eye on them!
5 piece band, lead by Ciara Rafferty; they are often spotted busking on London’s Southbank or visiting other small-ish venues around the Capital.
‘They have a contemporary folk sound, great lyrics, nice charisma & great musicianship!’
Check out this track – it’s a pretty good example of what they do!

A: I’ve learnt from countless musicians – some being: Tony Bennett, Louis Armstrong, Ed Sheeran, Oscar Paterson & Ella Fitzgerald. I also listen to Radio 2 in the car as it’s wide variety of music subconsciously influences so much of my songwriting.
