Junebug

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!

Belle & the Busker

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!’

Belle

Check out this track – it’s a pretty good example of what they do!

Q&A

Q: Where did your love of music come from?

A: My love of music came from my parents and family – I was exposed to music from a very young age.

Q: When & why did you start playing and singing?

A: I started playing and singing because I wanted to be able to play & sing the songs that I was falling in love with. Learning chord symbols was the most important step in the early days.

Q: What do you think makes a great song?

A: A great song for me is a combination of a dynamite melody, how it interacts with the chords/harmony below it and crucially, a subject matter that has the ability to be both relatable and also intimate.

Q: Which famous musicians have you learned from?

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.
