They started gigging together early 2017 and play great original material as well as some brilliant covers.
They made it to no.9 in The Scottish New Music Global Chart this January 2019 with the great song Let’s Not Pretend when Kirsty got in on the act as well with her first attempt at songwriting.
They have fantastic new songs in the works at the moment. Lights, a brilliant slice of blues for a modern generation. Sapphire Waves swirls around with great joy and an infectious beat. Guarded needs some finishing touches but it is very haunting and draws you in to the story of the song.
They have been offered a chance to record soon by someone very impressed with their sound, so let’s see where that goes as the year unfolds. I am sure you will see them gigging soon and details will follow during 2019.
In June 2018 they made it no. 5 in the Scottish New Music Global Chart with The Streets. Their debut single The Abandoned Highway is also available on iTunes along with a video of the track on YouTube. Both tracks were written by Scott Hewitt and Scott Nicol (Possibility Screams).
They played the fantastic Minstrels and Mayhem 2018 in August at Dundonald Castle and Prestfest the same weekend. They played Live@Troon early September and got a great reception and fantastic reviews from the audience. I am sure they gained new fans.
Elaine Lamb has been playing their tracks on Heat Fm New York and Sparkle Fm which is just fantastic. They played a storming set in October at TamFest in Ayr and they were just brilliant at The Saltire Awards in the Horizon Hotel Ayr in November. They had a busy weekend as they also played the Newmarket St street party in Ayr for Steven Brown Artist.
Gavin Wallace played Let’s Not Pretend at Rugby Park on Saturday 1st December which was wonderful and they played Wildwood Winter Festival in Ayr also in December.
Watch Catching Fireflies grow stronger in 2019 and come along with us on this electrifying ride.
