Stepping into the UK music scene just 3 years ago, Hamish developed a passion for music growing up in the Isle of Man, where he grew a strong fanbase.
From a very young age, Hamish was always a massive music fan. As a child he enjoyed smashing the pots and pans, which he says “…is one of my earliest memories I think!”
The kitchen utensil- smashing quickly developed into a strong passion for drums. Obsessed with it until about the age of 15, he got first acoustic guitar. Teaching himself a few covers, he then discovered the art of songwriting. He entered a few live music competitions until I was old enough to start gigging in the local manx pubs.
Hamish stepped into the UK music scene just 3 years ago and quickly gathered a backing band. They can now be found performing around some of Manchester’s most iconic venues.
In recent years, his biggest gigs to date have been opening for Tom Jones and James Blunt.
Last year, Hamish and the band headed to Edge Studios to record the first single ‘My My Lady’, which they released last summer. Since then, he’s developed a strong interest in producing everything himself. Hamish says “I always loved recording my own demos but just recently I’ve taken it a lot more serious. My latest single was all done in my spare room. It took me months but I absolutely loved doing it. My plan is to just keep writing and recording until I find that sweetness. I’ve got a few in the pipeline which I hope to record within the next few months.”
He continues, “my music now takes inspiration from the likes of Portugal the Man, Mac DeMarco and Dope Lemon. I like to think I bring a cocktail of my own cultural mix to the strong Indie Pop genre.”
