Six Scottish acts, including rising stars Rascalton, Awkward Family Portraits and Scarlett Randle, have been chosen to play the closing gig at the Resonate Music Industry Conference.
The live music show featuring top young talents will bring the Glasgow event, which takes place on November 14, to a close.
Now in its third year, Resonate will feature panel discussions, one to one advice sessions, practical led workshops and informative presentations at the city’s Barras Art & Design Centre.
The event aims to promote four key pillars – collaboration, creativity, accessibility and development.
The six acts for the closing show were selected by an independent panel of judges from the industry and will take to the stage to perform in front of industry professionals and enthusiasts from across Scotland and beyond.
Past performers have included Declan Welsh & The Decadent West, ONR, Makeness, Carla. J Easton, Dopesickfly, Lizzie Reid, Kate Kyle and many more.
The first name on the bill is Rascalton, a band that has risen from Glasgow’s blistering music scene, having spent years on the road travelling across the UK and Europe supporting the likes of IDLES, Cabbage and Benjamin Booker.
Joining them on the bill, fresh from her debut at TRNSMT 2019, is Scarlett Randle. Originally from just outside of Aberdeen but now calling Glasgow home, Scarlett is one of Scotland’s most exciting artists.
Her feisty character and perfectly executed live sets that draw on her emotions and experiences have seen the young singer-songwriter gain high praise in the industry.
From the streets of Glasgow to Resonate Live, five-piece band Awkward Family Portraits were also selected by the panel of industry judges.
With their roguish charm and signature style that elevates them far above the dusty stereotypes of folk music, AFP are a band that have one central goal – to get you to abandon all of the outside world’s hang-ups and move.
Chris Blackmore, the band’s manager, said: “Awkward Family Portraits are buzzing to have the invaluable opportunity to be performing at Resonate in front of a congregation of the who’s who of the what’s what of the music industry.
“They look forward to showcasing their wares and getting feedback on their music from industry professionals.”
Also joining the line-up is Zak Banks, presenting a blend of raw, acoustic sounds, ambient electronics and electric guitar inspired by his involvement in folk music.
There’s also a place for Edinburgh born, half Scottish, half Nigerian musician Billy Got Waves, who has been setting the standard for Scottish hip hop after the debut of his first solo release ‘KILL BILLY’ and having performed at multiple festivals, events, and club shows around Scotland.
The final act is Grayling, a young singer-songwriter emerging out of Glasgow’s Academy of Music & Sound who draws influence from the likes of Lana Del Ray and First Aid Kit.
