In February 2020 astrid released the first single from their Storm Sessions EP. It was an acoustic re-working of one of their popular early singles 'Distance'. A cover of Jeff Bridges’ 'Falling & Flying' from the Movie Crazy Heart came next. It charted at number 20 in the Scottish Singles Chart a few months before the Chart itself was abandoned by the Official Chart Company. Spring 2020 should have seen Stornoway's finest rolling round the UK for a couple of weeks bringing their acoustic EP to life. Yet we've all lived the story of what came next instead. Happily, in 2022 astrid return to give an acoustic airing to the songs from their 5 studio records and play the Storm Sessions EP in full.
Ewan Macfarlane’s burgeoning reputation is of a musician whose experience matches his many miles travelled. Broadening his horizons as a solo performer in his own right for the first time, Ewan's debut album Always Everlong sees the former Apollo440 and The Grim Northern Social frontman tell tales of tension with pledges of eternal love. As a writer he bares his soul from pen to paper wearing heart on sleeve and singing like his life depended on it. His career in music has meandered like a long flowing river that knows no boundaries.
