Possibility Screams… JULY 2019
So many great things happening here at @Scott Nicol Music and @Possibility Screams. Catching Fireflies recorded a brilliant version of a new song The Speed of Stillness and Emily Best recorded Still Saying Goodbye. We are waiting for the final mixes at the moment.
There have been a lot of gigs since my last update in June from the fantastic Unity Grill gig. Here are some highlights...
Emily Best smashed it up at Music on The Prom, Girvan. Catching Fireflies and Emi V played at a wonderful outdoor event in beautiful weather at the stunning Culzean Castle alongside Joe McNair, Daniel MG and Hollie Robinson. Emi V played main stage. They are all so talented.
I had a wonderful time playing 4 times over two days in Arran. I am looking at joining forces with Samuel Gallagher from EssGee Productions for an exciting project (more details to follow).
We finished July with a great gig for SAW Acoustic at the beautiful New Cumnock Town Hall. Four amazing young acts, Caitlin Taylor shone at her first Gig with me with her lovely voice and personality. Hollie Robinson played superb original material and had a great way with the crowd. Emily Best sang very well as she treated the crowd to an 8 song set that include 3 originals. Scott Hewitt from Catching Fireflies played some stunning guitar licks during his set and the crowd just soaked it all up and loved it.
August / Sept are looking like a whole lotta fun with Prestfest… I am playing for Olivia Campbell and Evie O’Hagan Hughes. Catching Fireflies at Live@troon and Centre Stage Kilmarnock. Enterkine House gig with Italian Guests for PTTA and a trip ‘overseas’ to The PHT in Arran ….no doubt I will be writing about these in my next update.. thanks again for your support.
Much love, Scott Nicol xx
POSSIBILITY SCREAMS - UNITY GRILL - 14 JUNE 2019
What a fantastic night at Unity Grill Ayr. This was the second time that I held a Possibility Screams event in this beautiful venue…
THAT’S TV SCOTLAND
I was delighted to be interviewed for That’s TV Scotland - watch the clip here!
Saturday 1st June was spectacular. We Started recording Butterfly With the super talented Charlotte Rutter and Unoma Okudo.
It was a really wonderful day... wow, such amazing vocals. I also want to thank Samuel Gallagher from EssGee Productions for all his work recording and playing on the track. The song will be out at the end of June.
The track is in aid of the great Houston TX based charity Hope Pyx Global. I wrote the song after meeting Eileen Dong and hearing about her story as a survivor of domestic abuse and the fantastic charity she has set up to help other women.
The song is really her story. Charlotte provided an amazing vocal to bring it to life and Unoma layered the song with her lush harmonies.
Watch this space for details of how you can download Butterfly in the days to come…
