Scottish singer-songwriter Adam Beattie has released 5 self-penned solo albums. Adam’s roots are in Scottish folk music and many of his songs have melodies and lyrical themes that transport us there. He started performing live in Glasgow where an early break had him supporting Bert Jansch shortly before he moved to London.
Adam has recently released a new album ‘Somewhere Round The Bend’ which has received high praise:
“Uplifting reveries of love” – Mojo Magazine
“Stirring Folk Balladry” – Line Of Best Fit
The album was championed by BBC Radio Scotland and presenter Roddy Hart, who featured it as his ‘Record Of Note’ and featured Adam as his ‘Me-In-3’ guest. And also earned him an invite to record an Under The Apple Tree live session for Bob Harris.
Adam’s new album features Seb Rochford (drums), Fred Thomas (bass) and Fiona Bevan (vocals) alongside Adam’s regular bandmates.
The album came fresh off the back of his Rough Trade Records release with PicaPica. As well as his folk 12-piece Band Of Burns’ latest release receiving 5 stars from BBC Music Magazine. As a multi-instrumentalist he has accompanied Birdy, Lulu, Michael Chapman, Sean Hayes, Mikey Kenney, Fiona Bevan, Garance Louis, Gabriel Moreno, Leonie Evans, Brooke Sharkey and The Bonfire Band.
